Subject: New Year's Song from Ukraine
Oj syvaja zozulen'ka - New Year's Eve carol from Ukraine as performed by KITKA (California, USA)
Village of Žaškovici, Pavlivska, Volyn Region, Ukraine
from the repertoire of Studio Theatre "Ne Žurys!" of L'viv

Lyrics in Cyrillic are in the notes on youtube

A gray cuckoo flew
Refrain: A Generous Evening! A good evening!
Cheers and health to all good people!
Over the courtyards
But didn't visit one of them.
In that courtyard are three towers.
In the first, the bright moon,
In the second, the beautiful sun,
In the third, tiny stars.
The bright moon is the man of the house.
The beautiful sun is the woman of the house.
The tiny stars are the their children.
