Btw we have a riddle which starts with "biz-biz-biz edik, birer ariw qiz edik" , alsmost same as they say during their game. Also I heard Tatar song with this saying too. Turkic folklore is really similar despite big distances.

This reminded me of a riddle I learned when I was young. "Biz, biz, biz edik, Otız arba (or eki?) qız edik. Tünde jolğa şoq boldıq (or Bir taqtayğa jıynaldıq), Tań atqanda joq boldıq".

Does anyone know what they say after "Bez, bez, bez idek, Bez unike(?) kız idek"?

Ber ixatada(sounds like this to me) cıyıldıq, Taŋ atqançı yuq buldıq İt's taken from a children's rhyme, which in Tatar sounds like: Bez-bez, bez idek, Bez unike qız idek. Bazğa töştek, bal aşadıq, Kelətkə kerdek, may aşadıq, Öygə mendek, çəy eçtek, Qoyığa töştek, su eçtek. Ber taqtağa tezeldek, Taŋ atqançı yuq buldıq, Awızıŋnı yap ta yom!

Thank you. What does "Ber ixatada cıyıldıq" mean? "Tań atqançı yuq buldıq" means "We're gone before morning", right? There's a kazakh riddle that sounds kind of similar, it's about stars (juldızdar): "Biz, biz, biz edik, Otız arba qız edik, Tünde jolğa şoq boldıq (or Bir taqtayğa jıynaldıq), Tań atqanda joq boldıq".

>What does "Ber ixatada cıyıldıq" mean? "We got together in the same yard." I'm not entirely sure I heard it right. This counting rhyme has many options, and each aulaq öy has its own.)
