Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Add: Vu Iz Dos Gesele
Subject: RE: Lyr/Tune Add: Vu Iz Dos Gesele
More than fifty years ago, my grandmother from Poland sang this melody with different words. Phonetically, as I recall (with apologies):

Krasnoy oy oblitcha, Belle eets vet,
Teemeen a lyubitcha, Netsee bya net,
Teemeen a lyubitcha, Nit toy dom,
Teemeen a zhervushka, shtoy oovalooba lum.

That's just the way I remember it. It may make no sense at all, but she said something about white and pink flower petals and a young man who wants the love of a girl.

But the music is the same as that posted by Joe Offer on 11 Feb. 99. Can anyone elucidate?

Many thanks.
