Bolit` dusha moya
Language: Ukrainian (Українська) 
Boly`t` dusha moya, boly`t`...
Pekuchy`j bil` yiyi projmaye...
A den` za dnem ply`ve, bizhy`t`,
a tam i smert` strashna chekaye...

YA zhy`v... a shho komu zroby`v?
Kudy` ya div chuttya i dumy`,
Koly` j chy`ye zhy`ttya zogriv,
Kogo na svit ya vy`viv z stumy`?

Bazhav ya til`ky` i spivav
Pro nich zemli, pro syajvo neba
I v lyudy` pisnyu posy`lav
Za mene zdijsny`ty`, shho treba.
