Dva pivnyky (Два півники)

Lyrics – Transliteration

(Ukrainian folk song)

1. Dva pivnyky, dva pivnyky
Horokh molotyly,
Dvi kurochky-chubarochky
Do mlyna nosyly.

Tsap mele, tsap mele,
Koza pidsypaye,
A malenʹke kozenyatko
Na skripochtsi hraye.

2. Tantsyuy, tantsyuy, kozyulenʹko,
Nizhenʹkamy — tup, tup!
Tatusenʹko z matuseyu
Prynesutʹ nam krup, krup.

A vovchok-siryachok
Z lisu vyhlyadaye
Ta na bile kozenyatko
Pylʹno pohlyadaye.

English Translation – Two Roosters

Two roosters, two roosters
Were threshing peas
Two chubby hens
Took it to the mill.

Chicken meal, chicken meal,
The goat is pouring
And a little kid
Playing on the fiddle.

Dance, dance, goat, dance
To the melody
Dad and her mother
Bring us grains and grains.

And the wolf
Looks out of the woods
And on the white goat
He looks good.

Ukrainian – Два півники

1. Два півники, два півники
Горох молотили,
Дві курочки-чубарочки
До млина носили.

Цап меле, цап меле,
Коза підсипає,
А маленьке козенятко
На скріпочці грає.

2. Танцюй, танцюй, козюленько,
Ніженьками — туп, туп!
Татусенько з матусею
Принесуть нам круп, круп.

А вовчок-сірячок
З лісу виглядає
Та на біле козенятко
Пильно поглядає.
