Da zashumila dubrovushka

Svarytsevychi (Rivnens'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Da zashumila dubrovushka,
Da zaplakala y udovushka.

Da ne plach, ne plach, udovushka,
Da pokosytsa dubrovshka.

Da pokosytsa y pohrebetsa,
Da y u kopychky y pokladetsa.

Da y iz kopychok, da v stozhechok,
Da vyyshla vdovka na shlyazhechok.

Da bytym shlyakhom kozaky ydut',
Da moho muzha konya vedut'.

– Da vy zh, kozaky, brattya moyi,
A de zh vy moho muzha dily?

– Da v chystom polyu yavor stoyit',
A pod yavorom tvoy muzh lezhyt'.

Da pod yavorom tvoy muzh lezhyt',
Da v pravoy ruchtsi shablyu derzhyt'.

A livoyu vodu bere,
Da na hrud' biluyu polyvaye.

Da na hrud' bilu polyvaye,
Do tovarysha promovlyaye:

– Da tovaryshy, brattya moyi,
Da yak budete v strany meyi,

Da yak budete v strany meyi,
Da nakazhite zhony meyi:

Da nekhay vona mene ne zhde,
Da nekhay vona zamuzh ide.

Da yakshcho yeyi dobre bude,
To vona mene pryzabude.

Yak lykhaya dolya ymetsa,
Toy ne raz, ne dva spom’yanetsa.
