Versione inglese di Juha Rämö
Maa vieras on ja kylmä kevät senYour country is strange and its spring cold
Natalia, sua paleltaaNatalia, you're freezing
Niin kaukana on ikäväsi maaSo far away is the land of your yearning
jo tuoksuu yössä aistit huumaten akaasiawhere the night is filled with the intoxicating scent of Acacia
Taas kerro mulle maasta nuoruutes,Tell me again about the country of your youth
Natalia, sua kuuntelenNatalia, I'm listening to you
ja tunnen veres virran lämpöisenand feeling the warmth of your blood
kun hehkuun jähmettyneen sydämes saa Ukrainaand the glow of your heart beating for Ukraine
Maa vieras on ja vieras kansa senYour country is strange and its people strange
Natalia, sua tunne enNatalia, I don't know you
Jaan osas' vain ja sellin kivisenI'm just sharing your lot and a stony cell
ja uness' kerran tuoksuu sullekin akaasiaAnd in your dreams you can smell the scent of Acacia
Vaan silmäis sinen viha tummentaaBut the blueness of your eyes is darkened by hatred
Natalia, kun muistat taasNatalia, whenever you remember
On vieras hävittänyt armaan maasyour beloved homeland destroyed by a stranger
Vain koirat raunioita samoaa, oi UkrainaOnly dogs are wandering in the ruins of Ukraine
Niin hiljaa siirtyy varjot ristikonThe shadow of the bars is slowly moving
Natalia, oi, kuuletkoNatalia, do you hear
Soi yössä rakentajain laulut jothe builders' songs pearcing the night
He palaavat ja silloin vapaa on taas UkrainaSoon, they'll be back and your Ukraine is free again
