Oy poydu ya, de zrodu khodyla,

Svarytsevychi (Rivnens'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Oy poydu ya, de zrodu khodyla,
Chy ne strinu toho, koho virno lyubyl[a].

Koho ya lyubyla - toy stoyit' za plechyma,
Koho ya ne znala – z tym na shlyubon'ku stal[a].

- Oy ne stiy, kozache, za moyimy plechyma,
Da ne proymay mene da svoyimy y ochym[a].

Oy yak zhe ya mozhu y ochen'kamy ne pryymaty,
Khodyv, lyubyv, kokhav – ne sudylosya vzyat[y]*.

Khodyv, lyubyv, kokhav – ne sudylosa vzyaty,
Bo ne dozvolyla meyi ridnaya mat[y].

Oy ne tak zhe maty, yak naystarshaya sestra,
Oy ne bery, bratku, bo bez dolen'ky zrosl[a].

Bo bez dolen'ky zrosla, a bez shchastya vrodylasa,
Oy ne bery, bratku, ne dlya tebe sudylas[a].

*brat[y] - variant
