A Christmas Song: “Расскажи, Снегурочка, Где Была?”

 

Ну Погоди!” (You Just wait!) is the most popular Soviet-Russian animated series. From the 20 episodes, 16 were released between 1969 and 1986. The four last ones were released after 1991.

The two main characters are a rabbit and a wolf. In a similar way that the American animation “Tom and Jerry”, the wolf try to catch the rabbit, but the rabbit is too smart for him.

The following song is issued from the 8th episode of the series. This is a Christmas song for children and both the rabbit and the wolf are singing. The rabbit is playing the role of Дед Мороз (Santa Claus), while the wolf is disguised as Снегурочка (the Snow Maiden).

To make it easier for you to follow at first, when the rabbit-Santa Claus is singing the lines will be in black and when it will be the turn of wolf- Snow Maiden, the lines will be in blue.

Расскажи, Снегурочка, где была? Tell me Snegurochka, where have you been?
Расскажи-ка, милая, как дела? Tell me, my dear, how are you?
За тобой я бегала, Дед Мороз, I was running after you Santa Claus,
Пролила немало я горьких слёз. I shed many bitter tears.
 
А ну-ка давай-ка плясать выходи. Come on, let's go out to dance.
Нет Дед Мороз, нет Дед Мороз, No Santa Claus, no Santa Claus,
Нет Дед Мороз погоди. No Santa Claus wait.
 
Ждёт моих подарочков ребятня Children are waiting for my presents
И тебе достанется от меня. And you'll get one from me.
Наконец сбываются все мечты, Finally all my dreams come true,
Лучший мой подарочек - это ты. My best gift it's you.
 
А ну-ка давай-ка плясать выходи. Come on, let's go out to dance.
Нет Дед Мороз, нет Дед Мороз, No Santa Claus, no Santa Claus,
Нет Дед Мороз погоди. No Santa Claus wait.
 

“Ну Погоди!” (You Just wait!)…
