Beriozka (The Birch Tree) or In the Field Stood a Birch Tree is a Russian folk song. Tchaikovsky included this popular folk song in the last movement of his Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Op. 36, written in 1877 -1878.
Oh, my little tree, I need branches,
For the silver flutes I need branches.
Loo-lee-loo, three branches,
Loo-lee-loo, three branches.
From another birch I will make now,
I will make a tingling balalaika.
When I play my new balalaika,
I will think of you, my lovely birch tree.
Loo-lee-loo, lovely birch tree,
Loo-lee-loo, lovely birch tree.
