Lyrics

Tykhaya richen'ka, bystraya zh voda,
Oy a zh po toy richen'tsi loton'ka plyla.

A v teyi loton'tsy molodchyk sedyt',
Oy rozchysuye kudra chastym hrybushkom.

Rozchysuye kudra chastym hrybushkom:
– Oy, oy plyvy, lotochka, krutym berezhkom.

Tam moya divchyna khustynu zh pere,
Oy zapytay u neyi, chy zhalyt' mene.

– Da nykhay yoho zhalyt' smutok, shche y bida,
Oy ny ya zh budu zhalyt', taka moloda.

Struhav vin pastruzhky z moyikh bilykh plech,
Oy a pliv nahayochku z moyikh rusykh kis.

– Oy nepravda myla, nypravda tvoya,
Oy struhav ya pastruzhky z sosnovoho pnya.

Struhav ya zh pastruzhky z sosnovoho pnya,
Oy a pliv nahayochku z sosny z korenya.
