I didn't know Minsk could party like that! I could make out some of the words "gop gop gop...ah mee dahntsooyeem" (gop gop gop...and we are dancing)

what sounds like "synagogue" in the song?(hmm..thats interesting) U are right, Sarah, though-its heard all over Israel on cell phones,etc.

BTW Verka Serduchka is Ukrainian, not Belarussian. That was a Ukrainian/Malorussian feast depicted in the clip. I just felt it was important to note that.

The chorus itself is in Ukrainian: Nikhto mene ni lyube(no one loves me), nikhto ne prilaskaye(no one is nice?), vidu ya u...ghop ghop ghop chi di ghop, i ya spivayu(and I sing), ghop ghop ghop chi di ghop, i ya tansyuyu(and I dance), ghop ghop ghop chi di ghop, ya veselo spivayu(and I joyously sing)...
