Oy zakynu svytynu na spynu

Bovsuny (Zhytomyrs'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Oy zakynu svytynu na spynu,
Na vsyu nochku do divchyny dvynu.

Oy day, Bozhe, suboty dozhdaty,
Zberu lyudey – da poshlyu y u svaty.

Zberu lyudey – da poshlyu y u svaty,
A sam poydu pod okno slukhaty.

A sam poydu pod okno slukhaty,
Oy shcho zh bude dyevchyna kazaty.

A dyevchyna po svyetlontsi khodyt',
Da tykhen'ko do materi hovoryt'.

– Moya y maty, poradnytsa v khati,
Porad' mene, shcho lyudyam kazaty.

Oy chy zh minye rushnychky davaty,
Oy chy lyudey vypravlyaty z khaty.

– A yak ty budesh rushnychky davaty,
To y ne kazhy, sho ya tvoya y maty.
