Oy Bozhe zh moy, Bozhe

Rokytne (Rivnens'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Oy Bozhe zh moy, Bozhe, nashcho ya vrodylasa,
Nema toho dnya, shob ya ne zhurylas[a].

Nema kuda yty, z kym pohovoryty,
Svoyu bidon'ku ni z kym rozveselit[y].

Poydu zh do dochky – virachu vochky,
Poydu do syna – to likha hodyn[a].
.
Pozhenu tovar da y u chystu luzhu,
Oy plachu, plachu da po svoyom muzhu.
