Русская азбука в песнях - Russian ABC in songs

I've decided to play the new round with Russian ABC.
I like this language and by singing it sounds still nicer, so I will chose to every letter a song.

Unfortunately I can not find on the internet phonetic transcription to the Russian language
and even can't write it with my computer.

A is for азбука (azbuka) - alphabet
алый (alyj) - crimson red

"Алые паруса" (Alyje parussa - Crimson red sails) is a fantasy novel 
of the Russian writer Alexander Grin (1880-1932).
It's protagonist is the girl Assol, what is waiting for a ship with crimson red sails.
I'm not a friend of modern fantasy books, but I've always liked this little old novel from 1923.


Today I've chosen a childrens song
"Есть на свете цветок алый, алый"  (Jest na zvetje zvetok alyj alyj) 
 "There's on the world a crimson red flower"

Posted for Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC-Wednesday
