My YT Algos just tossed this little gem to me :

"Moon's in the Heavens" sung by an un-named man, playing his bandura, outside the Trinity Monastery of St Jonas, in Kyiv.


Cheers,
R-J


PS   one Commenter suggested his name was "Old Jurko Bohun"

SONG NAME: Moon's in the heavens

LYRICS:
Moon's in the heavens, sparkle the stars above,
Quietly on the sea there floats a boat.
In the boat's a maiden, a song she does sing there,
A Kozak does hear it - his dearheart dies.

The song's beloved, the song is so loved,
All about loving, all about love
How we have loved, and had broken up,
Now come together forever again.

My eyes, my eyes, eyes of a maiden,
Dark, like the night, bright, like the day!
You oh dear eyes have taught me to cry and weep,
Where have you learned - to mislead people ?
