    Translating a Russian song to English

    Hello guys,

    I heard this song and I loved it, but sadly I have no idea what it is saying. If anyone can translate this to English I would be grateful. Is it a famous song?
    It's only few lines so it shouldn't be any problem.

    Muhtesem Yuzyil Rissian song - YouTube

    Thank you so much.

    it is a problem, because it's a Turkish version of the Ukrainian lullaby

    anyway, here are Russian and English versions:

    Ой люли, люли,
    Налетели гули, налетели гули,
    Да и сели на люли.
    Стали думать и гадать,
    Чем дитя кормить:
    Или бублечком, или медком,
    Или сладким молочком

    Pigeons came flying, pigeons came flying
    and sat down on a cradle.
    began to think and guess,
    what to feed the baby:
    a bagel, honey or sweet milk


    i guess Ukrainians on this forum will translate it better
