Lyrics

Okh, moya y matyunko y myla,
Okh, choho zh ty mene vrodyla taku neshchaslyvu?
Okh, ne dav meni Boh shchastya, ni doli, tak ne budyet'.
Oy moya y dole neshchasna,
Choho y ty meni sudylas' taka y nedobra?
Okh, choho ty ne vtopylas', ne zadushylas',
Yak mala y meni takaya y sudytys'.
Okh, moya y matyunko myla,
Choho zh ty mene porodyla takuyu y neshchasnu?
Ya y dumala, matyunko, shcho budu y panuvaty,
A teper ya y musyu biduvaty.
Okh, moya y matyunko y myla!
Okh, moya y matyunko y virna!
Koly zh ty bula zhyvaya,
To ty do mene khodyla y prybihala.
A teper ny khochesh do mene nikoly y pryyty vzhe!
A teper ny khochesh do mene y khodyty!
Ta y ny khochesh typer zo mnoyu y hovoryty.
Okh, moya y matyuyko dorohen'ka!
Prosty y myni, mozhe, ya y na tebe y sho skazala,
Mozhe, ya y koly y na tebe nakrychyela,
Mozhe, ya y koly tebe y nasvaryla.
Oy prosty zh meni, moya matyunko,
Prosty meni neshchaslyvu!

Oy synochku zh myy!
Choho zh ty mene tak raneyko pokynuv?
Oy choho zh ty puyshov takyy molodeykyy z ts'oho y svitu?
She zh ty tut, synochku, y ne nazhyvsya,
She zh ty tut, synochku, y ne nabuvsya.
Okh, ne dav tobi Boh dovhoho viku.
Okh, ne bachyv zhe ty kolo mene shchastya y dobra nikoly.
Okh, miy synochku molodyykyy!
Okh, miy synochku zoloteykyy!
Okh, choho zh ty raneyko pushov iz ts'oho svita?
Oy prosty zh myni, synochku, prosty!
Mozhe, ya y na tebe koly shos' skazala,
Mozhe, ya y tebe koly y nasvaryla,
Mozhe, ya y tebe, synochku, koly sho ne vhodyla.
Oy to y ty zh meni probach, synochku, y probach!
