Kelgusõit (Küll on kena kelguga)

Lyrics - Estonian

(Estonian folk tune, Lyrics by Reinhold Kamsen, 1905)

Küll on kena kelguga hangest alla lasta!
Oi, oi, kelguga hangest alla lasta!

Laial luhal säravad jää ja lumi vastu!
Oi, oi, säravad jää ja lumi vastu!

Lumehelbed helgivad, puiel ehted uued!
Oi, oi, helgivad, puiel ehted uued!

Kadakatel karjamaal seljas lumekuued!
Oi,oi, kadakatel seljas lumekuued!

Küll on kena kelguga hangest alla lasta!
Oi, oi, kelguga hangest alla lasta!

English Translation – Tobogganing (It’s nice with a toboggan)

How nice it is to launch a sleigh downhill!
Oh, oh, launch a sleigh downhill!

The ice and snow shine in the wide field!
Oh, oh, the ice and snow shine!

Snowflakes are shining, the trees have new jewelry!
Oh, oh, shining, new jewelry!

The junipers in the pasture are wearing snowcoats!
Oh, oh, the junipers are wearing snowcoats!

How nice it is to launch a sleigh downhill!
Oh, oh, launch a sleigh downhill!
