Chernoĭ molniyeĭ ya stanu dlya tebya,
Chernoĭ molniyeĭ na linii dozhdya.
I puskaĭ goryat listki kalendarya,
Zlo ne smozhet bolʹshe obmanutʹ menya.
“Kupalinka” a Belorussian folk song
Alexander Rybak has performed this song many times, and it was also the song he performed on his first visit to Belarus since he left in the age of 5. The video of his performance you’ll find below the lyrics. And if you wonder what the song is about, read the text below the video.

Na nedelʹku do vtorova ya uedu v Komarovo
Poglyadet’ otvykshim glazom na baltiĭskuyu volnu.
I na more budu razom korablem i vodolazom,
Sam sebya naĭdu v puchine,
Yesli chasom zatonu.
Na nedelʹku do vtorova ya uedu v Komarovo,
Sam sebya naĭdu v puchine, yesli chasom zatonu.

Hi! Come see us in Prague!
List of links to national fansites and fan groups of Alexander Rybak worldwide
FYI: This post was made in 2010 when there were opened fansites and fan groups about Alexander everywhere. As we know, such sites/groups come and go due to people’s engagement. Those from the list made in 2010 who are still available, are still on the list despite they are no longer active.
The International Fansite you’ll find in 5 languages:
The Fansite is also on Facebook:
ENGLISH and RUSSIAN, and a FACEBOOK GROUP
And you’ll find us on
One of the main reasons why the OFFICIAL INTERNATIONAL FANSITE was created was to:
1 . to bring fans from other countries together (that get lost in the abyss of the Official Facebook Page of Alexander Rybak with more than 100 000 members) and
2. to make a quick contact between them possible.
Please introduce yourself and post a link to your national fansite/fan group in the comment field and it will be added! 🙂
(Just so it’s clear, even if we share the links to these fansite/groups, we are not in any way responsible for the contain )
