E, poiekhav moi mylyi po zhuraviny zh, po zhuraviny

Perebrody (Rivnens'ka oblast)


Lyrics

E, poiekhav moi mylyi po zhuraviny zh, po zhuraviny,
Zahubiv konika, Bozhe moi mylyi zh, Bozhe moi milyi.

Ni sliedu zh, ni sliedu, ni dorozhenki zh, ni dorozhenki,
Poiekhav moi miloi na vorozhenki zh, na vorozhenki.

Dorozhka zh ‒ vorozhka, pravdy ne skazhe, spravdy zh ne skazhe,
Z kym moia milienka, spatonki liazhe, spatonky liazhe.

Oi liazhe, oi liazhe sama z soboiu, a sama z soboiu,
Kulachok ‒ pid bochok, pid holovoiu, pid holovoiu.

Yek ozmu kotika za chorny vushki, za chorny vushki,
Da kinu kotika v biely podushki, v biely podushki.
