Folk song, Ukraine.

“The Birch Tree (Beriozka)” is a very old traditional Russian Folk Song. The Russian name is usually written as “Beriozka”, “Berezka” or “Beroza” and in English the song is sometimes called “In The Field Stood a Birch Tree”.

The classical composer Tchaikovsky included this popular tune in the last movement of his Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Op. 36, written in 1877 -1878, and the film composer Dario Marianelli used the song in his music for the film “Anna Karenina”.

“The Birch Tree (Beriozka)”  English lyrics

1. See the lovely birch in the meadow,
Curly leaves all dancing when the wind blows.
Loo-lee-loo, when the wind blows,
Loo-lee-loo, when the wind blows.

2. Oh, my little tree, I need branches,
For the silver flutes I need branches.
Loo-lee-loo, three branches,
Loo-lee-loo, three branches.

3. From another birch I will make now,
I will make a tingling balalaika.
Loo-lee-loo, balalaika,
Loo-lee-loo, balalaika.

4. When I play my new balalaika,
I will think of you, my lovely birch tree.
Loo-lee-loo, lovely birch tree,
Loo-lee-loo, lovely birch tree.
