Lyubartsi (Kyivs'ka oblast)


Lyrics

Vasyleva maty poshla shchedruvaty,
Kray stola stoyala, chesnyy khrest derzhala,
Zolotu kadil'nytsyu, novuyu khrestil'nytsyu.
Khrestitesya, lyudy, os' vam Khrystos bude.
Bohu svichu stavte, a nam pyrih dayte.
Vechor dobryy!

Shchedrivochka shchedruvala,
Pid vikontse pidbihala,
Shcho ty, babko, napekla?
Nesy meni do vikna.
Vechor dobryy!

Shchedryk-vedryk, dayte varenyk,
Hrudochku kashky, kil'tse kovbasky.
A shche malo, dayte y sala,
A shche y donesu, dayte y kovbasu.
Vechor dobryy!
