I zolotoï i dorohoï

I zolotoï i dorohoï
Meni, ščob znaly vy, ne žal' 
Mojeï doli molodoï: 
A inodi taka pečal' 
Ostupyt' dušu, až zaplaču. 
A šče do toho, jak pobaču 
Maloho chlopčyka v seli. 
Mov odirvalos' od hilli, 
Odno-odnisin'ke pid tynom 
Sydyt' sobi v starij rjadnyni.
[Meni zdajet'sja, ščo se ja, 
Ščo ce ž ta molodist' moja.]1
Meni zdajet'sja, ščo nikoly 
Vono ne bačytyme voli, 
Svjatoï volen'ky. Ščo tak 
Daremne, marne proletjat' 
Joho najkraščiï lita, 
Ščo vin ne znatyme, de ditys' 
Na sim šyrokim vol'nim sviti, 
I pide v najmy, i kolys', 
Ščob vin ne plakav, ne žuryvs', 
Ščob vin de-nebud' prychylyvs', 
To oddadut' u moskali.
