Чорна хмара наступає, чорна хмара наступає, Гей-гей, чумак воли запрягає.
Чумак їде, ще й гальмує, чумак їде, ще й гальмує,
Гей-гей, де є корчма, там ночує.
Де є корчма хоч маленька, де є корчма хоч маленька.
Гей-гей, шинкарочка молоденька.
А шинкарка здогадала, а шинкарка здогадала - Гей-гей, на сто рублів боргом дала.
На сто рублів боргом дала, на сто рублів боргом дала -
Гей-гей, а на двісті записала.
Пропив чумак, пропив воли, пропив чумак, пропив воли
Гей-гей, бо в шинкарки чорні брови.
Пропив воли ще й притики, пропив воли ще й притики
Гей-гей, я в шинкарки без копійки.
Пропив воли, пропив ярма, пропив воли, пропив ярма
Гей-гей, ти дивився, що я гарна.

Black cloud is coming, black cloud is coming Hey-hey, Chumak is gearing up the oxens. Chumak is going and slowing down, Chumak is going and slowing down.
Hey-hey, he spends the night, where the tavern is. If there is a tavern, even small, if there is a tavern, even small.
Hey-hey, and young ale wife.
And the ale wife guessed, and the ale wife guessed -
Hey-hey, and she gave a loan of a hundred rubles She gave a loan of a hundred rubles, she gave a loan of a hundred rubles,
Hey-hey, but she wrote down as two hundred And Chumak drank away his oxens, drank away his oxens.
Hey-hey, because the ale wife has black eyebrows He drank away his oxens and parts of the cart, his oxens and parts of the cart.
Hey-hey, I’m penniless.
Drank away the oxens, drank away the oxbows, drank away the oxens, drank away the oxbows Hey-hey, you were looking, that I’m pretty
