Ponuro stoyachy na berezi krutim,
Ya dyvlyusya v brudnu dniprovs'ku vodu,
I dumayu pro te, shcho ye na sviti cim
Svyati miscya u koznoho narodu:
Dlya kohos' – Chenstochov, dlya kohos' – Noterdam,
Vsi znayut' do svyatyn svoyich dorohu,
Dlya nas – ce Kyyiv i Tarasova hora,
I Chortycya velyka za porohom.

Zatamuvavshy duch, na zemlyu cyu stupayu
I p’yu povitrya z dymom, nemov hirke vyno,
I pershe, shcho ya bachu i zdyvovano chytayu:
Tablychka – "Otdichat' zapreshcheno!"
I siryi DniproHES vysokoyu stinoyu
Mene vid Ukrayiny viddilya,
I tysyachovoltovi droty nad holovoyu
Trishchat', nenache stohne cya zemlya!

I pusto na dushi, i rozpach obiymaye,
Shcho krov yich tak daremno prolylas',
I pusto navkruhy, nide slidu nemaye,
Shcho zvidsy Ukrayina pochalas'.
Chay poyizd ponese mene u synyu nich,
Ya povertatysya syudy ne chochu znovu,
Stoyit' tam restoran, shcho zvet'sya "Zaporiz'ka Sich",
A v nim hrymyt' muzon ne na kozac'kiy movi!

Lysh spalena trava, yak u lychu hodynu,
Roztoptano kozac'kuyu svobodu,
Na Chortycyu ne budu vesty syna,
Nechay ne bachyt' vin hanby svoho narodu!

Ponuro stoyachy na berezi krutim,
Ya dyvlyusya v brudnu dniprovs'ku vodu,
I dumayu pro te, shcho ye na sviti cim
Svyati miscya u koznoho narodu...
