Dainos žodžiai:

Per lygias lankas lietutis lijo,
: Jaunas bernelis vainelėn jojo. :

Vai nustok lijęs, skaudus lietuti,
: Oi sustok jojęs, jaunas berneli. :

Oi sustok jojęs, jaunas berneli –
: Atsisveinkinkie tėvų motiną. :

Negaliu sustot, žirgo sustabdyt,
: Mano žirgelis – nesustabdomas. :

Mano žirgelis – nesusutabdomas,
: Mano širdelė – nesutramdoma. :

English lyrics:

Through the even meadows, the rain was raining,
: Young lad was riding to the war. :

Oh, please stop raining, the painful rain,
: Oh, please stop riding, the young lad. :

Oh, please stop riding, the young lad –
: Say goodbye to your father and mother. :

– I can not stop riding, can not stop the horse,
: My horse is unstoppable. :

My horse is unstoppable,
: My heart is untamable. :
