Everything flew over the threshold.
It was fun for us!
You will get it too!

Maslenitsa, Maslenitsa,
Give blink to eat.
Throw snowstorms away from us
Rolling on the carousel.
Melt the cold ice,
Let spring come soon!


The cat walked, sat, lay,
Long carnival was waiting.
Songs sang, hissed, snuffled:
"Not winter, but lawlessness!"
Under the battery window
He warms the cat warm!
And hopes that - here!
Hurry spring will come!


Mother Spring is coming, open the gates!
First March came, all the children spent
And behind him - and April opened the window and the door
And how came May, how much you want to walk!
Mother Spring is going along the fields alone
First time says goodbye,
The second time is forbidden,
And the third time we will not miss you!

Funny Russian couplets to Shrovetide for adults


Funny and frivolous Russian couplets at Shrovetide are especially popular with adults.These incendiary couplets with ambiguous hints and frivolous content sing at the table in close friendly-related companies. Folk art of this kind brings to the atmosphere of the holiday special savory notes and an element of some playfulness.

I love pancakes with herring,
Wash them up with delicious vodka.
True, later in the evening
I look like a scarecrow!


My mother-in-law made me:
Eat a pancake from mushrooms,
But I still lived a little
I am not ready to die!


In Maslenitsa held
We are fist fights,
I won the husband
After all, I have a frying pan!
