Lyrics

Tovchu, tovchu mak, mak,
Za stupoyu dyak, dyak.

Dala kusok sala,
A myshka vkhopyla.
– A de zh taya myshka?
– Koloda prybyla.
– A de zh ta koloda?
– Chervy potochili.
– A de zh tyye chervy?
– Kury pokl'ovali.

– Shulyaky pobrali.
– A de zh tyye shulyaky?
– More potopylo.

– Devochki porvali.
– A de tyyi devochki?
– Zamuzh poddavali.
– A de zh tyye molodychki**?
–Poshli v lyes po sunychky.
– A de toy lyesochok?
– Sokyrka zrubala.

– Sydyat' doma na pechi,
Da yedyat' kalachi.
A ya vstala unochy,
Da y poyela kalachy.
