Егоров Евгений Михайлович, город Владимир, исполняет
Солнечный круг, Небо вокруг — Это рисунок мальчишки. Нарисовал он на листке И подписал в уголке: Припев: — Пусть всегда будет солнце, Пусть всегда будет небо, Пусть всегда будет мама, Пусть всегда буду я!
May There Always Be Sunshine (Russian: Пусть всегда будет солнце! Actual Russian Title: Солнечный круг) is a Soviet Russian song, written for children. It was created in 1962. The music was composed by Arkady Ostrovsky, and the lyrics written by Lev Oshanin. The Russian writer and immensely popular children's poet, Korney Chukovsky, later wrote that the foundation for the song had been the four lines of the refrain, which were composed in 1928 by a four-year-old boy.
Performed for the first time in 1963 at the Sopot International Song Festival by Russian singer Tamara Miansarova, it earned her first prize there and immediately became popular throughout the USSR and in other countries, as well. It was sung by members of the Young Pioneers in Young Pioneer camps, Young Pioneer meetings and at schools; it was sung by Little Octobrists at schools; it was sung even by pre-school children. This song was widely considered a symbol of peace in the Soviet Union.
It is one of few Soviet songs that remained popular in Russia after the USSR and the Young Pioneer organization of the Soviet Union ceased to exist. The sky's bright blue. The sun is up high— This is the little boy's picture He drew it for you and then wrote there for you. Just to make clear what he drew. Chorus: May there always be sunshine, May there always be blue skies, May there always be my mama, May there always be me!
