Petrovochka, petrovochka, mala nochka

Chervona Volya (Zhytomyrs'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Petrovochka, petrovochka, malaya nochka,
Ne vispalas' moloda divochka.

Shcho robila, shcho robila – shnurki sukala,
Neyakiye, shovkoviye.

Neyakiye, neyakiye shovkoviye, putat' koni,
Koni y voronyye.

Ne sputala, ne sputala konya y voronoho –
Da sputala khloptsya y molodoho.

Ya dumala, ya dumala, shcho kon' bilohriviy,
Y-a zh-to stoyav, kozak chornobriviy.

Ya dumala, ya dumala, shcho konychok,
A zh to stoyav kozak-sokolychok.
