Oyi na hori a zele..., zeleneye zhyto

Vodyane (Zaporiz'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Oyi na hori a zele-, zeleneye zhyto,
Pid horoyu oves.

Pid horoy oves.
Oy ne po pravdi, a molodyy kozache,
Z divkoyu zhyvesh.

Z divkoyu y zhyvesh.
Oy yak nastane a vechir, vechir, temna nichka –
Do druhoyi idesh.

Do druhoyi ydesh.
Oy ya do mene, a molo-, y molodyy kozache,
Holos podayesh.

Holos podayesh.
Oy posady zh ty, a molo-, y moloda divchyno,
Kray vorit verbu.

Kray vorit verbu.
A kuda ytymu, oy abo, abo yikhatymu –
Do tebe zaydu.

Do tebe zaydu.
Oy ya do tiyi a verby, verby zelenoyi
Konya pryvʺyazhu.

Konya y pryvʺyazhu.
YA vzhe y sadyla, oy uzhe, uzhe y polyvala –
Ne pryymayetʹsya.

Ne pryymayetʹsya.
Oy uzhe moye a virne, virne y divuvannya
Ne vertayetʹsya.
