    Ой, Варенька, Варенька: Song

    I've recently downloaded a bunch of Russian folk songs and this was one of them. I also have another version that is called "Varenichki". I can't seem to find the lyrics to this song anywhere. If anyone could help me out by providing me with lyrics (and maybe a translation, too ) then I would be in your debt. Thank you!

    Is it this one?

    ВАРЕНЬКА

    Ой, Варенька, Варенька, хорошая, бревенька,
    Ой, да не ты ли Варвара, меня высушила.
    Ой, да не ты ли Варвара, меня высушила
    Без морозу, да и без ветру сердце вызнобила.

    Ты заставила Варвара к себе в гости ходить
    К себе в гости ходить да всё подарочки носить.
    Подарю я Вареньке черевички аленьки,
    Ты ходи, ходи Варвара во зеленый сад гулять.
    Цвети алы, розы-красны, будем хоровод сплетать.
    Вейся, вейся ручеёчек в заколдовано кольцо,
    Выбирай милого друга, поцелуй-ка горячо.
    Заиграйте мои гусли, гусли звончатые,
    Помогите в хороводе, милу дружку мне найти
    Для меня одна Варвара, что за девица - краса,
    Руса коса до пояса, ала лента завита.
    Hei, rett norsken min og du er død.
    I am a notourriouse misspeller. Be easy on me.
    Пожалуйста! Исправляйте мои глупые ошибки (но оставьте умные)!
    Yo hablo español mejor que tú.
    Trusnse kal'rt eturule sikay!!! ))

    Да!!!

    Thank you so much!

    Edit: Oh wait, I listed two different songs in my first post. The one that I said was a transliteration I think is written like this in Russian: Вареничкй

    I could be wrong, but that one is in fact the one I was looking for the lyrics to, sorry.

    Make sure that you don't confuse the words Варенька and варенички.

    В́аренька [varenka] is a girl's name, diminutive of Варвара [varv́ara], Russian variant of Barbara.

    Вар́енички [vareniсhki] is a diminutive of вар́еники [vareniki] (sing. вар́еник) - traditional Ukrainian food.

    Yes, that's it!

    I really hate how this group that I have singing it never finishes the song. They sing all but the last set of verses on almost every song I have by them.
