Yoy poydu ya, kuda vik ne khodyla

Zarichne (Rivnens'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Yoi poidu ya, kuda vik ne khodyla,
Chy ne znaidu zh ya, koho virno liubyla.

Oi koho liubyla, oi stoit za plechamy,
Oi koho ne znala – z tym na shliubonku stala.

– Oi ne stii, ne stii, mii liub, za pliechamy,
Ne proimai mene da svoimy ochamy.

– Oi, yak zhe meni za pliechamy ne stoiaty,
Ya zh liubyv, kokhav, ne sudylosia vziaty.

Ya liubyv, kokhav, ne sudylosia vziaty,
Ne spozvolyv Boh, ne spozvolyla maty.

Oi ne tak maty, tak yak menshaia sestra:
– Ne bery, bratko, bo y bez dolenky rosla.

Oi bez doli rosla, a bez shchastia rodylasa.
Ne bery, bratko, bo zh ne tobi sudylas(a).
