Cheburashka

This is the theme song from the popular Soviet-era cartoon “Cheburashka.” If you’re not yet familiar with “Cheburashka,” prepare to say “aw…” That’s right: “Cheburashka” is downright adorable. So adorable that this peculiar little animal “unknown to science,” who ends up as a toy in a store, has even become popular outside of Russia (particularly in Japan).

The lyrics rhyme, and are quite easy and enjoyable to learn. Plus, you’ll never forget how to say “Now I’m Cheburashka.” I’m sure this must be a valuable conversational tool in some situation.

Чебурашка

Я был когда-то странной
Игрушкой безымянной,
К которой в магазине
Никто не подойдет.
Теперь я - Чебурашка,
Мне каждая дворняжка
При встрече сразу лапу подает!
Мне не везло сначала,
И даже так бывало:
Ко мне на день рожденья
Никто не приходил.
Теперь я вместе с Геной,
Он не обыкновенный,
А самый лучший в мире крокодил!
Я был когда-то странной
Игрушкой безымянной,
К которой в магазине
Никто не подойдет.
Теперь я - Чебурашка,
Мне каждая дворняжка
При встрече сразу лапу подает!



Cheburashka

Versions: #1#2
I was once a strange
nameless little toy,
Which no one came to look at
in the supermarket.
But now, I'm Cheburashka,
An everyday dvornyazhka*
Right offers to me
on sight of my paw.
I had no luck at the start
and there were times
When on my birthday
no one came to the party.
Now I'm with Gena,
He's my amazing caretaker,
He's the best
alligator in the world.
But now, I'm Cheburashka,
An everyday dvornyazhka
Right offers to me
on sight of my paw.
But now, I'm Cheburashka,
An everyday dvornyazhka
Right offers to me
on sight of my paw.
*Russian word for "mutt"
