A Russian folk song that has been used in a few versions of Tetris. (BPS's and Tengen's misspell it as "Karinka"; see also Engrish.) The title is Russian for "little snowball-berry bush." Apparently there's no way to set an e2node to default to Cyrillic encoding instead of Latin-1, so I'll transliterate it into Latin characters.

Kalinka, kalinka, kalinka moya!
V sadu yagoda malinka, malinka moya!
Hej! Kalinka, kalinka, kalinka moya!
V sadu yagoda malinka, malinka moya!
Hej! Kalinka, kalinka, kalinka moya!
V sadu yagoda malinka, malinka moya!
Hej! Kalinka, kalinka, kalinka moya!
V sadu yagoda malinka, malinka moya!

Pod sosnuyu, pod zelenoyu
Spat' polozhite vy menya,
Aj lyuli, lyuli, aj, lyuli, lyuli,
Spat' polozhite vy menya

(repeat chorus)

Ah! Sasjonushka ty zeljonaja,
Ne shumi zhe nada mnoi!
Ai ljuli, ljuli, ai ljuli, ljuli,
Ne shumi zhe nada mnoi!

(repeat chorus)

Krasavica, duscha-devica, /* rhymes with "pizza" */
Pozholej zhe ty menya,
Aj, lyuli, lyuli, aj, lyuli, lyuli,
Pozholej zhe ty menya!

(repeat chorus)
