Abstract

The quotation from the famous anti-war song by American folk-singer P. Seeger is considered in the article in terms of precedent phenomena. Life-story of this song based on a Slavic lullaby version is described briefly with a lot of attention focusing upon the contexts containing the initial phrase of the song performing the function of its title. Semantic variations and the most popular structural-semantic transformations within modern English mass media discourse are also analyzed.
