Lyrics

Oi a ya v batka ta y na otkhodi zh,
A ya v batka zh ta y na otkhodi,
Posadyla orikh na horo[di].

Oi rosty zh, rosty, ta y rozkorinysia zh,
Rosty zh, rosty ta y rozkorinysia,
Zhyvy zh, tato, za mnoi ne zhury[sia].

Ta kokhai sobi druhuiu takuiu zh,
Kokhai sobi druhuiu taku[iu],
Yak vykokhav mene molo[du].

Oi kokhav-kokhav, ne vmiv shanuvaty zh,
Kokhav-kokhav, ne vmiv shanuva[ty],
Oddav liudiam ruky zh potyra[ty].

Oi a svekrukha ne ridnaia maty,
A svekrukha zh ne ridnaia ma[ty],
Stala zh mnoiu zh ruky zh potyra[ty].

Oi yisty khochu, azh serdenko viane zh,
Yisty zh khochu zh, azh serdenko zh via[ne],
Khliba vrizhu zh – vona skosa hlia[ne].

Oi yakby zh moia ridna nenka znala zh,
Yakby zh moia zh ridna zh nenka zna[la],
Vona zh meni zh vecheriat prysla[la].

Oi khot misiatsem, khot zirnytseiu zh,
Khoch misiatsem, khoch zirnytse[iu],
Khoch bratikom, khot sestrytse[iu].
