Nashe Kupalo obmeteno / Oi na Ivana, na Kupala

Lehedzyne (Cherkas'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Song 1
Nashe Kupalo obmeteno,
Shche y barvinochkom obpleteno.

Shche y vasylkamy obtykano,
Nas na Kupailo zaklykano.

Nashe Kupailo z verby-verby,
A ty, Ivanku, pryidy-pryidy.

Yakshcho ne pryidesh dorizhkoiu,
To pryvezemo telizhkoiu.

A khto ne pryide na Kupaila,
To z noho vyide dusha y para.

Song 2
Oi na Ivana, na Kupala,
Chorna halochka kupalasia.

Na berezhku sushylasia.
Divka Hannusia zhurylasia.

A shche y rushnychky ne natkala,
A vzhe Ivanka spodobala.

A shche y rushnychky na verstati,
A vzhe Ivanko sydyt v khati.

Song 3
Cherez nashe seltse nesut klen-derevtse,
/ Derevo, klen-derevo, nesut klen-derevtse. / 2

A z toho derevtsia zbuduiut tserkovtsiu,
/ Derevo, klen-derevo, zbuduiut tserkovtsiu. / 2

A v tyi tserkovtsi azh try svichki yasni,
/ Derevo, klen-derevo, azh try svichki yasni. / 2

Persha svichka yasna – tam Sofiia krasna,
/ Derevo, klen-derevo, tam Sofiia krasna. / 2

Druha svichka yasna – tam Olena krasna,
/ Derevo, klen-derevo, tam Olena krasna. / 2

Tretia svichka yasna – to Hanna prekrasna,
/ Derevo, klen-derevo, to Hanna prekrasna. / 2
