Answer
Hi!
Yes, she is singing an old Russian pop song, and she changes it a bit.

What you''ve brought for me today
Is not a gorgeous bouquet of roses,
neither tulips, nor lilies.

Then the original song goes on "May lilies (lilies of the valley), May Lilies", and the girl changes it and sings "Petunias Petunias" :))

You can listen to it on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CD3y3escvZs
