Lyrics

– Oy ar'ol, ty y, ar'ol, ty, tovarysh darahoy,
/ Chy ne buv ty, ar'ol, na Vkrayinushkye radnoy? / 2

Chy ne buv ty, ar'ol, na Vkrayinushkye radnoy?
/ Chy ne bachyv, ty y, ar'ol, zheny moyey molodoy? / 2

– A ya bachyv, a ya chuv, bo ya v neyi vchora buv,
/ Vona plache, zhuryt'sya, shche y pechalyt'sya. / 2

Vona plache, zhuryt'sya, shche y pechalyt'sya,
Za toboyu, kozakom, ubyvayet'sya.



V mene bat'ko yak tsvit, zavˊyazav meni svit,
V mene maty yak zorya, rano zamizh oddala.

U velykuyu simˊyu, shche y v chuzhuyu storonu.

A velykaya simˊya vsya vecheryaty sida,
/ A mene zh, molodu, y posylayut' po vodu. / 2

Ya po vodu ishla, yak holubka hula,
A z vodoyu ya yshla – pryslukhalasya.

A z vodoyu ya yshla – pryslukhalasya,
/ Shchos' u sinyakh shepotyt', maty syna svoho vchyt': / 2

– Synu ty miy, ty zh moya syrota,
/ Chom horilochky ne pˊyesh, chom ty zhinochky ne bˊyesh? / 2

– Nashcho horilku pyt', v mene serden'ko bolyt',
/ A nashcho zh zhinku byt', vona vmiye vse robyt'. / 2


A nashcho zhinku byt', vona vmiye vse robyt',
/ I spekty, i zvaryt', ta y do mene hovoryt'. / 2
