Belarusian folk song "Kanushnia" (A Stable)

 I suggest you to listen to the Belarusian folk song. This song is popular enough in my country. This song is performed many times on stage. Different groups sang it differently. And today I will show you that.

Here is a translation of the first part of song. Each line is sung twice. 
I will go into a new stable.
I will saddle the black horse
Then I'll go to the field
There I'll tie the my horse 
And go for a beautiful girl.

This variant is (in my opinion) the closest to the original recording. Music band "Palace" sings this song.

And this is a very interesting version of the song. Russian project "Ivan Kupala" creates their cover versions of folk songs. They often twist two or three songs in a single composition. Therefore, you will hear two Belarusian songs simultaneously. "Stable" starts on the 30th second.
