Zarichne (Rivnens'ka oblast)


Lyrics

I ya, shcho zhe taia biedna vdovonka diie?
Neorane pole – a pshenychenku zhe siie.

Oi, posiiavshy, stala vona volochyty.
Povolochyvshy, stala Boha prosyty.

– Zarody, Bozhe, tu pshenychenku v poliu,
Na liudskuiu baiku, na vdovynuiu doliu.

Oi shche vdova ta y do khaty ne pryishla,
A vzhe liudy kazhut, shcho pshenychenka ziishla.

Oi shche y vdova da na lavku ne sila,
A vzhe liudy kazhut, shcho pshenychenka spila.

Oi poshla y uvdova tu pshenytsu hliadity,
A tam vyvela perepilochka dity.

Oi, khto zabere perepilchyny dity,
Oi, toi zhe bude shtyry roky khvority.
