Letiv orel ponad kruti hory

Orlivka (Vinnyts'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Letiv orel ponad kruti hory,
Ta y stav kalynu klyuvat'.

Ta y stav kalynu klyuvat',
Lyubyv kozak, molodu divchynu,
Ta y stav yiyi pokydat'.

Ta y stav yiyi pokydat',
Vona, shel'ma, yoho zcharuvala,
Ta y stala yoho pytat'.

Ta y stala yoho pytat':
‒ Skazhy, skazhy, myy druh rozlyubeznyy,
Od choho zh ty zabolyel.

Od choho zh ty zabolyel,
Chy vid myla, chy vid moyikh lyuboshchiv.

‒ Ni vid tvoyikh lyuboshchiv,
‒ Skazhy, skazhy, moy druh rozlyubeznyy,
Koly budesh pomyrat'.

Koly budesh pomyrat',
Skazhy, skazhy, druh moy rozlyubeznyy,
A de zh tybe pokhovat'.

A de zh tybe pokhovat'?
‒ Pokhovayish mene, razlyubezna,
De try shlyashky stremenyu.

De try shlyashky stremenyu,
Odyn dons'kyy, a druhyy – khersons'kyy,
Tretiy shlyashok ‒ na Moskvu.

Tretiy shlyashok ‒ na Moskvu,
Ne vbyvaysya, moya razlyubezna,
Ni v dosadu, ni v tosku.
