Lyrics

Travka-muravka, zelena trava,
Oy za dobrym muzhom zhona moloda.

Choho trava y zelena, bo blyz'ko voda.
– Oy chom ya molodaya, bo mni dolya dobra.

– Choho zh ya molodaya, bo mni dolya y dobra,
Oy shyla, vyshyvala z chornoho bobra.

Shyla, vyshyvala, ne znala komu,
Oy chy tomu kozaku, shcho virno lyublyu.

Chy zh tomu kozaku, shcho virno lyublyu,
Oy shcho vin p’ye-hulyaye v vyshnevim sadu.

Da shcho vin p’ye zh, hulyaye v vyshnevim sadu,
Oy myne pokydaye taku molodu.

Da shchypaye zh, lamaye vin sad-vynohrad,
Oy kydaye, brosaye v novuyu krovat'.

Krovat' moya nova, shcho y tys'onaya,
Oy postyl' moya zh bila postyl'onaya.

Postyl' moya zh bila pukhoven'kaya,
Oy z kym ya lyazhu spaty moloden'kaya.

Poydu zh ya na misto, khoch prokhodyusa,
Oy koho virno lyublyu, khoch podyvlyusa.

Poshla ya zh na misto, mistechko dryzhyt',
Oy hlyanula vzad sebe – miy mylyy bizhyt'.

– Oy zdorova zh, myla, zdorova zh, moya,
Oy choho zh taka sumna, neveselaya?

– Oy yak zhe mni, mylyy, veseloyu but',
Oy lyubyla, kokhala, rozluku dayut'.

Rozluka, rozluka, rozluka moya,
Oy nikhto nas ne rozluchyt', ne svit, ne zora.

Nikhto nas ne rozluchyt', ne svit, ne zora,
Oy ni blyz'ki susidy, ni maty stara.

Ni blyz'ki susidy, ni maty stara,
Oy tol'ko nas rozluchyt' syraya zemlya.
