Na kalini chornyy voron krache

Rokytne (Rivnens'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Na kalini chornyy voron krache,
Na chuzhyni syrotyna plache.

– Ne krach, ne krach, chorna voronyno,
Ne plach, ne plach, bedna syrotyno.

– Oy yak zhe zh mnye oy da y ne plakaty,
Nema v mene ny bat'ky, ny maty.

Oddavali vse chuzhyyi lyudy:
– Idy zamuzh – tobi dobre bude.

Ya dumala, shcho sveta pobachu,
Poshla zamuzh, a tepera plachu.

Ya dumala, shcho nazad vernusa,
Poshla zamuzh, a taper zhurusa.

– Des' ty, myla, da y mene ne znayesh,
Shcho ty z mene proz vokno vtekayesh.

– Okh yakby zh ya tebe, miloy, znala,
Chy zh ya z tebe pruz vokno vtekala.

Na politsy lezhat' palyunytsi,
To dlya moyoy horkoyoy p’yanytsy.

Na prepechku – varenychky v masli,
To dlya moyoy dolyen'ky neshchasnoy.

Na kalini chornyy voron krache
Na chuzhyni syrotyna y plache.
