Tum Balalaika

Original song is in Yiddish language and it originated in Russia. It means sound of balalaika. Balalaika is a russian triangular stringed musical instrument. Here’s the best version of it (with lyrics):

And here’s another good version from an interesting movie – Prendimi l’anima:

Girl, girl, I want to ask of you
What can grow, grow without rain?
What can burn and never end?
What can yearn, cry without tears?

A stone can grow, grow without rain
Love can burn and never end
A heart can yearn, cry without tears
