Soviet song (1939) – Ah, Sweet Cherry the Ukrainian (English subtitles)


On a moonlit May night
Bogun regiment rode, And in cherry fine orchards
There was a nightingale song. On fast chestnut horses
Towards Kiev, they rush; To meet Symon Petliura,
Towards his cossack huts. Gangs of the Whites were defeated
By our power the Herculean. Oh, you, cherry, early cherry,
Ah, sweet cherry the Ukrainian! That is not voiced kobzas
Stricken by someone’s hand, That is the command of Shchors: “Guys,
Bring your guns into play! ” Became the nightingale scared,
Became the nightingale mute… When the bullets fell on the
Petliurist regiment! Gangs of the Whites were defeated
By our power the Herculean. Oh, you, cherry, early cherry,
Ah, sweet cherry the Ukrainian! Oh, the road is flowing
All in Heydamak blood. Hey you, don’t touch our houses,
To tear our cherry do not!.. A cry in Bogunia is heard:
To Kiev, Shchors rushes along. And he tears sweet cherries,
He tears a full handful off! Gangs of the Whites were defeated
By our power the Herculean. Oh, you, cherry, early cherry,
Ah, sweet cherry the Ukrainian! Gangs of the Whites were defeated
By our power the Herculean. Oh, you, cherry, early cherry,
Ah, sweet cherry the Ukrainian!
