In the US, most people are familiar with the "Alphabet Song" -- it's a simple tune that many children use to remember the names of the letters in the English alphabet.  For those of you who might be unfamiliar with it, you can hear it here.

Do any other languages have such a song?  I am especially curious about Russian, and any other language that does not use the Roman alphabet.
