lyrics

Ох ти соловей, а я й утойка.
Ох ти полєтіш, а я тутойка.
Ох ти соловей, чого невесьол?
Чого невесьол, чого засмучон?
Ох да як же мнє, да й не журиться, Моя утонька пораньонная?
Ох товариш мой, чого невесьол,
Чого невесьол, чого засмучон?
Ох да якже мнє, та й не журиться?
Мав я дівчину - засватаная.
Ох коби через село, та й не жалко було, А то через двор взяв товариш мой,
Як по воду йде, - “добрий день” дає,
А з водою йде - сльозойками ллє.

Oh you are a nightingale, and I am the duck
Oh you will y away, and I’m still here.
Oh you are a nightingale, why are you mirthless? Why are you mirthless, why are you sad?
Oh how can I, how can I not lament,
My sweet duck is injured?
Oh my friend, why are you mirthless,
Why are you mirthless, why are you sad?
Oh how can I, how can I not lament?
I had a girlfriend, we were engaged.
Oh if on the other side of the village, it wouldn’t hurt so much.
But my friend took her from the other side of the yard.
Every time she’s going for water saying
“good day”,
And when with water going - tears are pouring.
