Unknown Artist (Ukrainian) - Kari ochi, chorni brovy


Kari ochi, chorni brovy

Kari ochi, chorni brovy. Original by Trio Marenych.
Kari ochi, chorni brovy,
Ne zabuty vas nikoly.
Yak u sni ya vas pobachu:
Vy smiyetes', a ya plachu.
Ochi! Vy charivno hlyboki,
Vy moyi odynoki,
Yakze ya lyublyu vas. (ves' kuplet – 2)
Bilya nenky svoyeyi
Ya rosla-vyrostala,
Vid ochey tvoyich karych
Svoyu vrodu chovala.
Ta zahlyanuly ochi
Meni v serce i dushu, –
I teper vze shchonochi
Ya yich bachyty mushu.

Original is very nice but not quite as funny http://pisni.ua/trio-marenych-kari-ochi-chorni-brovy

No idea how I screwed it more up into "chervony"... Thanks, Maria

I moved this to Unknown Artist (Ukrainian). Or is this a folk song? And why aren't the lyrics written in Cyrillic letters?

It is an old folk song, but I will do some research to update it all. Ty

Ok, you can move it to Ukrainian Folk later if it seems to be more fitting.

The title translates as “Red Eyes”, while the song is about ‘black brows, brown eyes’’. Is this correct? And the song is in Ukrainian language, what is published here is a transliteration.
You should request transcription, so the source would be in the native song’s language Wink smile
I listened to it, and even as transliteration, this text is not even close to the lyrics they sing. I believe it is Ukrainian folk song, just different interpretation (humorous).

Yes, Maria. I meant to do it. And then, I started another translation that's killing me....lol
I may need to run few things by you - can we chat later?
