Lyrics

Oy shcho zh taya da y udovushka diye,
Nyhorane pole, a pshenychen'ku siy[e].

Oy a posivshy, da stala volochyty,
A povolochyvshy, stala Boha prosyt[y].

– Oy zarody, Bozhe, da pshenychen'ku v polyu,
Pshenychen'ku v polyu, na vdovynuyu dol'[u].

Oy shche taya vdovka da y iz polya ne ziyshla,
A yiyi pshenytsa da y na polyushku ziyshl[a].

Oy shche taya vdovka ta y na lavku ne sila,
A yiyi pshenytsa da y napospil[a].

Voronyyi kony y udovushka zaprahala,
Svoyu pshenychen'ku da y iz polya prybyral[a].
