Umka is the Soviet cartoon in two parts released in 1969. The cartoon was directed by Vladimir Pekar and Vladimir Popov at Soyuzmultfilm studio. The script was written by Yuri Yakovlev.

The dilogy gained immense popularity thanks to the well-conceived and drawn image of the polar bear and its mother-bear, the voices of the actors, the music of Evgeny Krylatov, and the song (lullaby) of the bear performed by Aida Vedischeva.

Today we offer to your attention this lullaby.

Lyrics and translation

  • Ло́жкой снег меша́я
    Ночь идёт больша́я
    Что же ты, глупы́шка, не спишь?
    Спят твои́ сосе́ди
    Бе́лые медве́ди,
    Спи и ты скоре́й, малы́ш.
    Спят твои́ сосе́ди
    Бе́лые медве́ди,
    Спи и ты скоре́й, малы́ш.

  • Mixing snow with a spoon,
    The big night is going,
    Why aren't you sleeping, silly?
    Your neighbors - white bears
    Are sleeping,
    And you too go to sleep, baby.
    Your neighbors - white bears
    Are sleeping,
    And you too go to sleep, baby.

  • Мы плывём на льди́не,
    Как на бриганти́не
    По седы́м суро́вым моря́м.
    И всю ночь сосе́ди
    Звёздные медве́ди
    Све́тят да́льним корабля́м.
    И всю ночь сосе́ди
    Звёздные медве́ди
    Све́тят да́льним корабля́м.

  • We're floating on an ice floe
    As on the brigantine
    In the gray severe seas.
    And all night, our neighbors -
    Star bears
    Shine to distant ships.
    And all night, our neighbors -
    Star bears
    Shine to distant ships.
