Ой ішов чумак з Дону, (2)
Як із Дону до дому.
Ой як з Дону до дому (2)
Та й сів над водою.
Та й і сів над водою, (2)
Та й проклинає ж свою долю.
Ох доле ж моя доле, (2)
Да чом ти не такая?
Ох да чом ти не такая, (2)
Ох як доля людськая?
А я чужу долю да сім раз поцілую
Да долю хорошую.
Ой а я свою долю поб’ю-порубаю
Да в річку побрасаю.
Ой пливи, моя ж доле, пливи за водою, Ох а я за тобою.

Oh Chumak was coming from the Don, (2)
As from the Don to his home.
As from the Don to his home, (2)
And sat over the water.
And sat over the water, (2)
And curses his fate.
Oh fate, my fate,
Why you are not like?
Why you are not like, (2)
Like fates of the people?
And I will kiss someone’s else fate for seven times Someone’s good fate.
Oh and I will cut and kick my fate
And throw it into the river.
Oh swim, my fate, swim adri ,
Oh and I’ll swim a er you.
