Don't be too hard on yourself, you don't know how much time I spent on that...

LOL. I can totally believe that; I wouldn't have gotten as much as you did. It's easier when you're just focusing on two words and the rest is already done.
Looks like I was busy editing my previous post while you posted yours, so now that it has been moved to the previous page, I'll post this part again:

Because of the rhyme with toone? Valgeid jooni, valged jooned.

A "linguistically interesting" song with what seems to be northeastern Estonian dialect (tieksin tua = teeksin toa) and pseudo-German (lähter tohter aafel...) from southwestern Siberia, although presumably originally from northeastern Estonia. This version is sung by the band Trad.Attack.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oeLs2VOwWs

Oh, oleks minu olemine,
Teiseks minu tegemine,
Tieksin tua tuulele
Ja sauna saare oksale.
Ise istuks nurgale
Ja laulaks laulu saksa kielt:
Memme visse, krusse visse,
memme endin tiihe.
Lähter tohter aafel,
muhker muhker meihen.
Pim pam zinzim bruut,
ander vinden zamdin bruut,
kalder kuku kuldur vaih,
kalder kuku kuldur vaih.

More semi-nonsense (liisusalmid, children's word-games for choosing a person) from Trad.Attack. This is several shorter ones strung together (and has some very traditional verses mixed with their own variations; Vabarna is the name of two of the band members, as well as the great-grandmother folksinger of one of them, so I doubt that part appears in other versions). :wink:

There are lots of versions, some with only Estonian words, some with German words, some with Russian words, some with nonsense.

Üks väike valge tuvi lendas üle Inglismaa.
Inglismaa oli lukku pandud,
luku võti katki murtud.
Ütle: mitu seppa peavad seda parandama?

Mina ei mõistnud seda keelt

Idii damoi = иди домой ("go home" in Russian)
