Mamo was the Russian entry at the 2009 Contest performed by Anastasiya Prikhodko. The song was performed in Russian and Ukrainian - Ukrainian being the first and so far only time the language was used in a Russian entry.

As Russia hosted the 2009 Contest, they did not have to participate in a semi-final. It was performed 10th in the final, following Armenia and preceding Azerbaijan, both neighbouring countries. After the close of voting, the song finished just outside the top ten, placing 11th with 91 points.

Lyrics

Višel iz tenji vnov, moj vrag – maja ljubov
Njejizbježna maja dolja, skoljka sertse nji gatov
No, preždje čem ujti, kalječkom zalatim
Abručil menja s saboju i at čar nje zašitil
I na volju maju dušu nje pustil

Mamo, a ti ž menі kazala jak ne žadaj
Mamo, a ja ž todі ne znala de ž ta bіda
Mamo, a ti ž menі kazala čas jak voda
Mamo, mamo, mamo, ljubov – bіda

Brošu mečtu svaju i ob pal razabju
Kak slamal ti maju dolju i astavjil na kraju
Ja daždjom djevjiči sljozi razalju

Mama, a ti že mnje skazala, nje ažidaj
Mama, a ja ž tagda nje znala, gdje ž ta bjeda
Mama, a ti že mnje skazala, vrjema – vada
Mama, mama, mama, ljubov – bjeda

Mamo, a ja ž todі ne znala de ž ta bіda
Mamo, a ti ž menі kazala čas jak voda
Mamo, mamo, mamo, ljubov – bіda[1]

Out of the shadows once again, my enemy, my love
Inevitable is my destiny, no matter how much you're prepared
But before you left, with golden ring
You engaged to me and didn't save me from sorcery
And didn't let my soul be free

Mum, and you've been telling me not to desire
Mum, and at that time I didn't know where trouble was
Mum, and you've been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble

I will throw away my dream and crush it on the floor
How you've broken my destiny and left it on the side
I will pour out girl's tears like rain

Mum, and you've been telling me not to desire
Mum, and at that time I didn't know where trouble was
Mum, and you've been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble

Mum, and at that time I didn't know where trouble is
Mum, and you've been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble
