"(F/n)."



"Mama."



"You're up past your bedtime."



"So are you."



Ukraine, your mother, laughed. "I don't have a bedtime anymore!"



"Then why do I have one?" you said, pouting adorably.



"Because you're too young. When you get older, you can stay up later."



"But-"



"If you go to bed now, I'll sing 'Котику Cіренький'1 for you."



You looked up sharply. That was your favorite lullaby from your childhood. You wanted to stay up late, but you wanted your mother to sing to you, too. You could only have one…



You looked at your mother and held up your arms, silently asking her to pick you up. Ukraine smiled and lifted you, carrying you to your room. She tucked you in and turned off the bedroom light from the switch next to the door.



Ukraine perched herself on the edge of your bed, near the bottom. She looked at you to see if she could start to sing. You nodded.



"Котику сіренький
Котику біленький
Котику волохатий
Не ходи по хаті
Не ходи по хаті
Не буди дитяти
Дитя буде спати
Котик воркотати
Ой на кота воркота
Ha дитину дрімота
A a a a !
A a a a !"

Your mother had a magical voice when she sang. She could somehow put so much emotion into the notes she sang. Sometimes, it seemed as if multiple voices were joining hers in a beautiful chorus. It remained something that you would look forward to.



You grinned tiredly. "Дякую мамі. На добраніч."3



She smiled softly. "Будь ласка. На добраніч. Я люблю тебе."4



"Я теж тебе люблю."5
Here's the Ukraine version of 'Lullabies' for :iconmylittlejedi:!

1- 'Grey Cat'

2- Grey Cat,
Grey Cat,
Bushy cat,
Don't walk about the house,
Don't walk about the house,
Don't wake the kid.
The kid will be sleeping,
The cat will be purring.
Purring's for the cat,
Sleep is for the kid.
A-a-a-a!
A-a-a-a!

3- Thank you, mama. Goodnight.

4- You're welcome. Goodnight. I love you.

5- I love you, too.

If the translations are incorrect, please let me know.

Comments are appreciated, but not necessary.

Hetalia is not mine.
Neither is Ukraine.
I don't own you.
But I DO own the story.

This reminds me of Sheldon Cooper's "Soft Kitty" lullaby.

My school teaches russian. I go to a global studies academy. I attempted to try and sing this ukrainian song but I think I fail. xD When I saw thank you in ukrainian I was like "Hm? The Russian thank you is спасибо (Spasibo *note: At the end, it's pronounced "ba" even if it has an "o")

The only languages that they teach in my area are the usual ones. Spanish, Latin, German, French, and so on. And you probably did fine! Better than I could have, anyway.

My school also teaches arabic. As well as everything else. As an academy student, I have to take two of the. I take russian, french and italian. Russian is the easiest language for me because it's similar to greek. I speak greek. My friend keep saying take arabic. I refuse and say it looks like scribble scrabble. I also refuse to take spanish because I believe it's overrated. I forgot to mention this but, I say this is so cute! Mama Ukraine, she would make a good mama.

Thanks! I love Mama! Hetalia.

My cousin is learning Arabic, and speaks it all the time. Can't understand a word he says. And I agree that Spanish is over-rated. I plan on learning Hungarian, Greek, Russian, Lithuanian, Polsih, and Ukranian. Yah know, not at the same time. In the future.
