  • Пробираясь до калитки
    Полем вдоль межи,
    Дженни вымокла до нитки
    Вечером во ржи.

    Очень холодно девчонке,
    Бьет девчонку дрожь:
    Замочила все юбчонки,
    Идя через рожь.

    Если кто-то звал кого-то
    Сквозь густую рожь
    И кого-то обнял кто-то
    что с него возьмешь?

    И какая нам забота,
    Если у межи
    Целовался с кем-то кто-то
    Вечером во ржи!..

    Robert Burns Original

    "Coming Through The Rye"

    Coming thro' the rye, poor body,
    Coming thro' the rye,
    She draiglet a' her petticoatie
    Coming thro' the rye.

    O, Jenny's a' wat, poor body;
    Jenny's seldom dry;
    She draiglet a' her petticoatie
    Coming thro' the rye.

    Gin a body meet a body
    Coming thro' the rye,
    Gin a body kiss a body -
    Need a body cry?

    Gin a body meet a body
    Coming thro' the glen,
    Gin a body kiss a body -
    Need the warld ken?

    Standard English Translation

    "Coming Through The Rye"

    O Jenny is all wet, poor body,
    Jenny is seldom dry:
    She draggled all her petticoats,
    Coming through the rye!

    Coming through the rye, poor body,
    Coming through the rye,
    She draggled all her petticoats,
    Coming through the rye!

    Should a body meet a body
    Coming through the rye,
    Should a body kiss a body,
    Need a body cry?

    Should a body meet a body
    Coming through the glen,
    Should a body kiss a body,
    Need the world know?

    Should a body meet a body
    Coming through the grain,
    Should a body kiss a body,
    The thing is a body's own.

    Traditional Scottish Songs
    - Comin' Thro' The Rye

    There are various versions of this song which appeared in a collection by Thomas Maqnsfield in 1770/1780. Robert Burns made his contribution with his own variation, (not this one) which was not as bawdy as some.

    Comin' Thro' The Rye
    Gin a body meet a body
    Comin' thro' the rye
    Gin a body kiss a body
    Need a body cry?
    Ilka lassie has her laddie
    Nane, they say, hae I
    Yet a' the lads they smile at me
    When comin' thro' the rye.

    Gin a body meet a body
    Comin' frae the town
    Gin a body kiss a body
    Need a body frown?
    Ilka lassie has her laddie
    Nane, they say, hae I
    Yet a' the lads they smile at me
    When comin' thro' the rye.

    'Mang the train there is a swain
    I dearly lo'e myself
    But what his name or whaur his hame
    I dinna care to tell
    Ilka lassie has her laddie
    Nane, they say, hae I
    Yet a' the lads they smile at me
    When comin' thro' the rye.
