Nasha Melanka ‒ hospodynia,

Na opolontsi lozhky myla,
/ Lozhku y tarilku upustyla. / 2

Lozhku y tarilku upustyla,
/ Bilenkyi khvartukh zamochyla. / 2

Oi povii, vitre buinesenkyi,
/ Vysushy khvartukh bilesenkyi. / 2

Oi povii, vitre, she duzhche, duzhche,
/ Vysushy khvartukh shche luchshe, luchshe. / 2
