Царкоўка

А на гарэ царкоўка,
А на гарэ царкоука.
 
На царкоўцы макоўка,
На царкоўцы макоўка.
 
На макоўцы гняздзечка,
На макоўцы гняздзечка.
 
А ў гняздзечку яечка,
А ў гняздзечку яечка.
 
На яечку ластаўка,
На яечку ластаўка.
 
Яна сядзіць высока,
Яна сядзіць высока,
 
Што ёсць, відзіць далёка,
Што ёсць, відзіць далёка.
 
Што й ў Полацку дзеецца,
Што й ў Полацку дзеецца.
 
Дзевяць мальцоў жэняцца,
Дзевяць мальцоў жэняцца.
 
Дзясяты вянчаецца,
Дзясяты вянчаецца.
 
Любоў на тым сканчаецца,
Любоў на тым сканчаецца.
Любоў на тым сканчаецца,
Любоў на тым сканчаецца.

Submitter's comments:

I added this next to the other Carkouka because these are the lyrics actually sung on the Rasti album.

The lyrics were checked and corrected by [@stoneowl].
