Карамыслы да купорыслы
Да ведерцы дубови.
Пр.: ох и лёли, ой да лёли, лёли. Да Мариюшка да воду нося,
Да карамыслы гнутся. Карамыслы они гнутся,
Да с ведер вода льется. Иванюшка, глядя у окошко,
Да слезою зальется.
Пашто же ты, да мой Ванюша, Да давно не жанился? Гармонист, гармонист,
Голову не вешай,
Смотри прямо на меня - Совлекать буду тебя. Совлекала, совлекала Совлекала - не берет.
Подарила я платочек -
Он на ленточки берёт. Посадила гармониста
под самые образа.
Не гармошка совлекала -
Його карые глаза.
Я одела белу кофту -
Одевай подружка й ты.
Нас мильонки побрасали,
Мы обыдви сыроты.
Я б давно, давно жанился,
Да никто не влюбился,
Да никто не влюбился,
Да никто не под совесть
Пр.: ох лёли, ох да лёли, лёли.

Yokes oh yokes
And buckets of oakwood.
Chorus: oh lyoli, oh lyoli, lyoli.
And Mariya, while carrying the water
And the yokes are bending.
The yokes, they are bending,
And the water from the buckets is pouring. And Ivan, while staring out the window. Bursts into tears,
Why you, my Ivan,
Did not marry for so long?
Accordionist, hey, accordionist Do not hang your head,
Look straight at me -
I will lure you.
I have lured, I have lured,
I have lured, it did not work.
I presented the handkerchief,
He takes it for ribbons.
I have made the accordionist sit
Under the icons.
I have been lured not with the accordion, But with his brown eyes
I have put on a white blouse
So, my friend, do the same.
Our sweethearts le us
We both are orphans.
I would marry long time ago, But no one fell in love.
And no one is in my breast. Chorus: oh lyoli, oh lyoli, lyoli.
