A do mene Yakiv prykhodyv,
Korobochku rakiv prynosyv!
A ya tii raky zabrala,
A Yakova z khaty prohnala:
“Idy, idy, Yakove, z khaty,
Bo na pechi batko ta maty,
A v zapichku batkovi dity,
Nide tebe, Yakove, dity”.
Ne pishov zhe Yakiv dodomu
Ta zaliz u khyzhku v solomu,
A sobaky havkaty staly,
Poky batko y maty ne vstaly.
Narobyly halasu dity
Tak, shcho nudno v khati sydity,
Ya zabrala raky u mysku,
Sama pishla spaty u khyzhku.
Koly tudy y batko prykhodiat
I u mystsi raky znakhodiat:
“Khto z toboiu tut zhenykhavsia
I khto prynis raky? Pryznaisia!”.
Poky mene batko pytavsia,
A mii Yakiv z khyzhky ubravsia —
Cherez tyn ta cherez horody,
Narobyvshy batkovi shkody.
“Ne prykhod zhe, Yakove, nichchiu,
Bo bude storozha pid pichchiu…
Mene batko y maty vse laiut,
A shcho tebe niiak ne piimaiut…”
