Deities

Oh, Kupała, Kupała (1)
Oh, had already seen so many things
Because this night, good God
Every sin can happen.
 
Look at this vilas, that appeared with
morning on Kupała (2)
Their bodies long grew old
And still they would lure young men
Look at this Vilas, that pampered themselves on Kupała's morning
 
They would love to play with boys
They would love to play with boys
They would love to play with boys
They would love to play with boys
 
So they came up with a cunning plan
 
This is Kupała Night
At every Kupała Night weird things happen
There is full moon again
Today old deities will appear again
This is Kupała Night
Mad rituals
There is full moon again
Today everything can happen
 
Old hags dances, danced, danced
They lured young men
Old hags dances, danced, danced
They lured young men
Old hags dances, danced, danced
They lured young men
 
It's time
Let's start feasting
Maybe lovage will bring us luck
 
Chemises, dresses, scarves, flower crowns
Chemises, dresses, boys, flower crowns
Chemises, dresses, scarves, flower crowns
Chemises, dresses, boys, flower crowns
 
No one will see our faces this night
 
This is Kupała Night
At every Kupała Night weird things happen
There is full moon again
Today old deities will appear again
This is Kupała Night
Kupała Night
Mad rituals
There is full moon again
Today everything can happen
 
Fair-faced devil woman
Show us your beautiful face
My dear, my dear, look at your feet
Or you'll break your teeth and legs
Fair-faced devil woman
Show us your mesmerizing face
I'm old but I'm still strong
Strong, strong witch
 
This is Kupała Night
Weird things are going to happen again
Moon is full again
Old deities are waiting again
This is Kupała Night
Night of mad rituals
There is a wild full moon again
Everything can happen
 
Every age has it's own rules
But old age can be spry too
Hags grow old when they're not wanted
They're wasting when not wanted
 
This is Kupała Night
Kupała Night
Mad rituals
There is full moon again
Today everything can happen
 
Thanks!
