Translation

Ay lyu lyu ly, night and rain, Ay lyu lyu ly, night and wind, In the night and in the rain, In the night and in the wind, People are walking on the roads, Wet and hungry as dogs, And beaten like dogs And driven out like dogs. Ay lyu ly lyu ly, night and rain, Ay lyu ly lyu ly, night and wind, Lyulinka my child, Lyulinka my child. And where those people are going, The night knows and the wind knows, Without lament and without shouts, In the night and in the wind, They are going in dark rows, Wet and hungry as dogs, And beaten like dogs And driven out like dogs. Ay lyu ly lyu ly, night and rain, Ay lyu ly lyu ly, night and wind, Lyulinka my child, Lyulinka my child.
