Unfortunate coincidence

By the time you swear you're his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying —
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying.

Нещасливе співпадіння

В мить, коли клянешся ти
Що "його", з зітханням.
І заприсягнеться він
В вічному коханні -
Знай: сказав слова брехні,
З вас один, принаймні.
 
Thanks!

This is a poetic translation - deviations from the meaning of the original are present (extra words, extra or omitted information, substituted concepts).

Please don't hesitate to correct me, especially if the translation language is your native language.

Гидка немов горілка, зброя невдах..."
