Hvvhdiin Duu – Jigmed Togmid Hoyr

Greetings everyone!

Today, we celebrate the Children’s Day in Mongolia and for this occasion I am very excited to introduce to you a new Youtube playlist composed of Hvvhdiin Duu (Children’s Song).
This first song is called “Jigmed Togmid Hoyr” and I intend to make few more of those in the future, as I find this kind of repertoire very positive and entertaining to learn and play!! I hope that you will enjoy!

Find below the lyrics for this song in Cyrillic and in their latin transcription

Жигмэд Тогмид хоёр

Жигмэд Тогмид хоёр
Жимсэнд хамт явжээ
Уулын модонд очоод
Уралдаж түүхээр болжээ
Уулын модонд очоод
Уралдаж түүхээр болжээ

Жижиг савтай Жигмэд нь
Түрүүлнэ гэж барджээ
Том савтай Тогмид нь
Сүүлдэнэ гэж сүрджээ
Том савтай Тогмид нь
Сүүлдэнэ гэж сүрджээ

Түүсээр байгаад Тогмидын
Сав нь дүүрээд иржээ
Идсээр байгаад Жигмэдийн
Гэдэс нь цадаад иржээ
Идсээр байгаад Жигмэдийн
Гэдэс нь цадаад иржээ

Find below the English translation made by Bujee

Jigmed and Togmid
Go to the forest up in the mountains.
And decide to compete picking fruits
To see who will fill his basket first.

Jigmed having a smaller basket
Boasts that he will win.
Togmid having a bigger basket
Is afraid that he will lose.

However,
Togmid, having gathered all his fruits
Comes back with a full basket.
Jigmed, having eaten all his fruits
Comes back with a full stomach.
