Two versions of the same folksong in Hungrian: Zúgadoz Az Erdő (Humming Forests) sung by Hoidviola and by Márta Sebestyén.
Synopsis (not a full translation since I don't know Hungarian):
In both, the female singer says "Beautiful songs come from the forest, wheat flourishes in the field. Tell me, my rose, tell me truly: should I wait for you or not? Are you waiting for me? When will you return?"
In the first version, the male singer responds with "My sweet rose, don't even wait until tomorrow. Find someone new who will be with you until the end."
In the second version, the male singing responds will all sorts of impossible things: "I'll come back when the stove is covered in moss, when a fairy market is held outside your door, when money and pearls grow at your gate" and ends with "or perhaps not even then."

Kaiken muštos om minei nece čoma eht.

Hamõ õhukõ, su sälän prunts om tummõ.

Hammõst läbi paistus rõnnakõnõ kummõr.
Ütle mullõ uma telefoninummõr.

Loomine (Creation) sung by Heinvanker. An Estonian version of the same story from above. This one is longer and therefore tells more of the story. (Compare: Votic version, Ingrian version).

Variations of an Ingrian (Ižora) folksong: Maarojani Sizojani / Oi Tai

sung by Kadoi Aleksandrova in the Ingrian/Ižora language (in this version, two sisters are discussing ways to keep suitors from coming to court them: build a new town far away, or be prepared to attack the suitor with swords when they arrive):

Part of the song is missing from the video version, the full song is here along with a second version by Minna Oras (nearly the same lyrics).

Another Ingrian-language version, sung by Finno-Balkan Voices in Bulgaria (also nearly the same lyrics):

(et) TRAD.ATTACK! - Sõit / Ride

https://youtu.be/wRhCn8phyME

The lyrics are taken from Estonian counting rhyme(s?). Definitely weird and fascinating. :) I also love the video!
And the rhyme and the rhythm strongly remind me of Finnish counting rhyme Entten tentten teelikamentten, which we used all the time as kids, so I get a strange feel of nostalgia every time I hear this song.
Aaalso, I love that hiired kõditasid naba, sina oled mängust vaba! We just have "now I leave this game" to end the rhyme, that's so much more boring.


I couldn't find the lyrics so if you have free time, it's time for the "who of us can guess hear what they say" -challenge. :lol:

Mostly it is a sort of nonsense language with a few real words sprinkled in. The line you quoted is the only one that really makes sense. There is sõit of course and other little bits of meaning here and there like Jaani kamm and kibe käsi but the majority of it doesn't mean anything.
Of course, eeny meeny miny moe doesn't have any meaning in English either; counting rhymes are often like this. Is it the same with entten tentten teelikamentten (mostly nonsense with some real words thrown in)?

Sõit sõit sõit...
Ankut trankut, trilla troo,
sester vaaber, viiber koo,
amm, tamm, rites tamm,
eedi, peedi, jaani kamm.
Iisik siisik, sikker maasik,
meelik seelik, kibe käsi,
kilde kaldre, vabarna valde,
ille tille, tipe poiss.
Edeli kedeli, keiu veiu,
redeli tedeli, tillu rips.
Mirili pirili, oone aane,
tirili virili, väike tips.
Adina sudina, sitka satka,
saamer vesser, kuppen koi,
titram tatram, tigerigu nigerigu,
pipran papran, sügeligu mügeligu.
Hiired kõditasid naba,
sina oled mängust vaba!

Edit: here is a link to a longer version of the lyrics, which begins with ussa pussa, ussa maru, sina oled mängus karu (you are a bear in the game) and ends with trips, traps, trull, sina oled kull! (you are a hawk). It's also interesting that in place of kibe käsi it has kipe käis, which doesn't mean anything, but rhymes better with tipe poiss. You can almost imagine someone seeing it written and thinking "that must be a typo, we should change it to kibe käsi..."
Also, this way of counting in that second version makes me smile: üki, kaki, kommi, nenni, viide, kuude. (For those here who don't know Estonian, the numbers in Estonian are üks, kaks, kolm, neli, viis, kuus.)
