Сєно моє сєно,
под тобою вода. Плакала-рідала
дівчина молода. Плакала-рідала,
з личенька змарніла, Видно по дівчині
віночка жалєла.
Не жаль мені вєнка,
Не жаль тої речі - Розпустила коси,
Да й встелила плєчі. Коски розпустила,
Плєчкі й устелила,
Пошла за нелюба -
Жалю й наробіла.
Ой жалю мій жалю,
Мій горький печалю,
Да й прийшов нелюбий, Зайняв й усю лаву. Прийшов мой мілєнький - Нєгдє ж йому сєсти. Нєгдє ж йому сєсти, Вечероньки з’єсти.

Hay, my hay,
There is water under you.
There was crying, there was sobbing A young girl.
She was crying, she was sobbing, And her face became morbid.
It was seen,
She was sorry for her wreath.
I’m not sorry for my wreath,
I’m not sorry of that thing.
She unbound her plait,
And covered her shoulders with it. She unbound her plait,
And covered her shoulders with it. She married with the unloved -
And made it a repentance.
So bi er sorrow.
And the unloved has come,
Took the whole bench for himself. My sweetheart came,
Has no place to sit,
Has no place to sit,
Some dinner to eat.
