Lyrics

Kalyna y malyna horkaya y zelʹona
Oy desʹ zaplakala syrot·sʹkaya vdova.

Oy desʹ zaplakala y horko zarydala,
Shcho y svoyoho y syna v armiyu viddala.

Viddala v saldaty, v horod y u Varshavu,
V horod y u Varshavu, de bʺyutʹ barabany.

De bʺyutʹ barabany, horko y vybyvayutʹ,
Moloda y divchyna v soldaty ryadzhayutʹ.

Za bohatym synom plache y vsya rodyna,
A za syrotoyu – moloda divchyna.

Za bohatym synom plache y batʹko y maty,
A za syrotoyu chornyy voron kryache.

Oy Bozhe y miy, Bozhe, nashcho ya vrodyvsya,
Nykhto y ne zaplache, khotʹ by ya vtopyvsya.

Ne zaplache y batʹko, y a y ne ridna maty,
Khiba y ta divchyna, shcho y mayusya braty.
