Looking for a Ukrainian Children’s Song

Andrew wrote me yesterday…


I’ve had this song stuck in my head since Ukrainian camp when I was a little boy. I know some of the words but the spelling is wrong.

Maybe you can help me find what song is stuck in my head. It goes something like this:

Dujza tila ne po rodu…
I pokajze ….

Thank you so much for your time.


If anyone is familiar with this song, please comment below.

Thanks! Lisa

    I’m ukrainian. Sorry for the mistakes. But the song is really like our hymn nowadays. It is a new Hymn, so you could hear it before as a simple song.
    With your words it sounds like:

    Dushu j tilo mi polozhim za nashu swobodu
    I pokazhem sho mi brattja kozatskoho rodu

    She ne wmerla w Ukraini
    ni slawa ni wola
    She nam bratta ukraintsi
    usmihnetsa dola
    zginut nashi worozhenki jak trawa na sonzi
    Zapanujemo mi bratta u swojij storonzi

    I also have a Ukraininan song that I would like identified, so at least I know what my Grandma was always singing me with such care. It was a long time ago, but it sounded similar to:

    Paula Paula Pop Que
    Shushu Nanna Pop Que
    Shushu Shushu Shushu Shushu

    Can anyone help me with this song, and identify it by name, or what is about? Please email me at: young_gun100@hotmail.com
