Ukrainian lyrics and English translation

Охра́на, отмє́на
Security, cancellation
Усе́ життя́, як ка́сова стрíчка
На ній, так до́бре ви́дно, що ти за чува́к
Завжди́, шука́єш усю́ди зни́жку
А нова́ та́чка, ма́йже, як нова́.
The whole life is like a paper roll of a cash register
It shows so well what kind of dude you are
You always look for a discount
And your “new” car is almost like a new one.
Вчо́ра, в менí ку́пу-ку́пу вад шук-шука́в
А сього́дні, шо́ко-шокола́д купу́-купува́в
Три́ста гри́вень, вчо́ра, по́ки спав,
че́ки взяла́ шви́дко
Ні тебе́, ні пли́тки,
обірва́лась ни́тка
Yesterday you were looking for lots and lots of defects in me
And today you bought me a chocolate bar 300 hryvnias, yesterday, while he was sleeping,
I quickly took the receipts
No you, no chocolate bar,
The thread has broken…
Охра́на, отмє́на
Він вночí назва́в ме́не Лє́на, а я не Лє́на
Я Я́на, охра́на
Ви́ведіть, бо ля́же, як вста́ну
Якщо́ я вста́ну
Ти ля́жеш, ти ля́жеш, ти ля́жеш
Ля́жеш, як вста́ну я
Ти ля́жеш, ти ля́жеш, ти ля́жеш
Ля́жеш, як вста́ну я.
Security, cancel the receipt
At night, he called me Lena, but I’m not Lena,
I’m Yana, security,
Take him out, because he will lie down once I stand up
If I stand up
You will lie down, you will lie down, you will lie down (in the meaning of “I’ll knock you down”)
You will lie down when I stand up
You will lie down, you will lie down, you will lie down
You will lie down when I stand up.
Усе́ життя́, як пога́на зви́чка
Паке́т не тре́ба,
жу́йку змо́жу донести́
Мої́ мема́си кида́в їй в лíчку
І пíдло ла́йкаєш мої́ пости́.
The whole life is like a bad habit
No need for a plastic bag,
I’ll be able to carry the chewing gum
You send her my memes in private
And you meanly “like” my posts.
Вчо́ра, в менí ку́пу-ку́пу вад шук-шука́в
А сього́дні, шо́ко-шокола́д купу́-купува́в
Три́ста гри́вень, вчо́ра, по́ки спав,
че́ки взяла́ шви́дко
Ні тебе́, ні пли́тки,

І ось, усе́ твоє́ життя́ лежи́ть на ка́совій стрíчці
Вона́ зна́є що ти їси́ і зна́є всі твої́ зви́чки
Напри́клад, Вíра Петрíвна чи стомато́лог Ва́ся
Ніхто́ не зна́є про них стíльки, як тьо́тя на ка́сі
And here, your whole life is displayed on cash register paper
It knows what you eat and it knows all your habits
For example, Vira Petrivna or Vasia the dentist,
No one knows about them as much as the woman at the cash register.
Охра́на, отмє́на
Він вночí назва́в ме́не Лє́на, а я не Лє́на
Я Я́на, охра́на
Ви́ведіть, бо ля́же, як вста́ну
Якщо́ я вста́ну
Ти ля́жеш, ти ля́жеш, ти ля́жеш
Ля́жеш, як вста́ну я
Ти ля́жеш, ти ля́жеш, ти ля́жеш
Ля́жеш, як вста́ну я.

You will lie down, you will lie down, you will lie down
You will lie down when I stand up
You will lie down, you will lie down, you will lie down
You will lie down when I stand up.
