Wild Dances was the Ukrainian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2004 in Istanbul performed by Ruslana. She was given free reign to choose any song she wanted as part of her internal selection, a move that proved successful for Turkey only a year prior.

The song qualified from the semifinal in second place, only 7 points behind Serbia and Montenegro. In the final, it was performed 10th following Albania and preceding Croatia. At the close of voting, it was declared the winner with 256 points, giving Ukraine its first win on only its second appearance in the contest.

The Ukrainian version of the song is called "Dyki Tantsi".

Lyrics

Just maybe I'm crazy
The world spins round and round and round
Shee ree kee dai, shee ree kee dam dei
Shee ree kee dai, shee kee ree a dam da

I want you to want me
As I dance round and round and round
Shee ree kee dai, shee ree kee dam dei
Shee ree kee dai, shee kee ree a dam da

Forever and ever
Go, go, go, wild dancers

Dai na, dai na, wanna be loved
Dai na, gonna take my wild chances
Dai na, dai na, freedom above
Dai na, dai na dei, I'm wild dances

Hey

Napevno, daremno
Bula ya nadto chemna
Hey, shee kee dai, shee ree kee dam dei
Shee ree kee dai, shee kee ree a dam da

Dlya tebe, dlya sebe
Zastelyu tsile nebo
Hey... dam dei
Shee ree kee dai, shee kee ree a dam da

Bez zhalyu zapalyu
Go, go, go, wild dancers

Dai na, dai na, wanna be loved
Dai na, gonna take my wild chances
Dai na, dai na, freedom above
Dai na, dai na dei, I'm wild dances

Hey... ho...

Dance forever, come and be mine
Dance together, till the end of time
Dance together
Go, go, go, wild dancers

Dai na, dai na, wanna be loved
Dai na, gonna take my wild chances
Dai na, dai na, freedom above
Dai na, dai na dei, I'm wild dances

Hey, hey




















Probably, in vain
I was too obedient


For you and for myself
I'll spread out the whole sky



I will set the fire without any sorrow
