Ishli chumaki sorok tri roki

Krychyl's'k (Rivnens'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Ishli chumaki sorok tri roki,
Da y ne znali chumachen'ki hora, ni byedi.

Sluchilas byeda sered horoda,
Y zabolila chumachen'ku sertse y holova.

Priyshov do yoho y tavarysh yoho,
Y uzyav yoho za ruchen'ku, pitaye yoho:

– Okh, tovarish moy, shcho zh tobe bolit?
– Bolit-bolit, tavarishu, sertse y holova.

– Okh, tavarish moy, poratuy myenya,
Proday vozi, proday voly – da vratuy myenya.

Yak malo volov, prodavay yarma,
Ratuy-ratuy, tovaryshu, bude ne darma.

A sivi voly rozumni buli,
Cherez misto, cherez hori y dodomu vtekli.

Okh, yak viyshla mat' volov zahanyat',
Podivilas' syuda-tuda – syna y ne vidat'.

Yak viyshla zhona – pripala k zemlye:
– Pomer-pomer moy mileykiy v chuzhoy storonye.
