Temna nochen'ka yde

Svarytsevychi (Rivnens'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Temna nochen'ka yde, zopochynku ne bude,
Des' moy myloy, chornobryvoy, na rozboy poyide.

Vin z rozboyu zh yide, dev’yat' konykov vede,
Na desyatom voronom sam rozboynik maladoy.

Pryyizhzhaye do dvora: – Vchynyay, myla, vorota,
Da idy ty do riky, koshulen'ku* spoloskny,
Koshulen'ku spoloskny, svoho bratka pom’yany.

– Oy ty zh, myloy, myloy moy, nashcho moho brata vbyv,
Nashcho moho bratka vbyv, ta y koshulen'ku iznyev?

– A ya yikhav da y krychav, shchob z dorozhky zvorochav,
A tviy bratko hordyy buv, iz dorozhky ne zvernuv.

A ya vyynyav hostryy mech, znyav holovon'ku iz plech,
Pokotylas' holova pid bulanoho zh konya,
A miy konyk syvohryv holovon'ku rozmisyv.

Zashumily vsi luha, shche y krutyyi bereha,
Plache, plache bat'ko y maty, shob vzhe synon'ka nema.

*koshulen'ka - sorochka
