Video Description

just a jewish song

thanx to gavrielgavriel for his help with the english translation below

It's calm like in paradise
Stars over the shtetl are high and bright
I sing for myself
I cut for myself
Night has descended
Rest, children, the day was too hot
Stitch after stitch
It's hard to make a penny lately

Chores: Oy vey

There was a time when I was strong
But now I'm not the same
Years wore the hair out
And my coat's got too shabby
There was a Jew
Who has mentioned once
That everything passes
Sun, oy vey, also falls down by the end of each day
But it will be born again alas not like me
Who will dress them up in style and fashion after me?

My dear girl,
Tomorrow at morning you will get back to me again
My dear, my feigele (bird)
You have sad eyes.
Father will whisper a joke into your ear
And you will laugh
People are so different
And so are the songs
Next day will come
and we will have food
Don't hurry up to live your life
Sometimes a poor man is reacher
The one who did not save much
The one who is not held by any obligations anymore
A thread, a piece of velvet and some needles
That's about it
And also Talmud on a book shelf
I wish my life would stay like that
But I see the sun less and less often

There was a time I was strong
But now I'm not the same
Years wore the hair out
And my coat's got too shabby
There was a Jew
Who has mentioned once
That everything passes

It's calm like in paradise
Stars over the shtetl are high and bright
I sing for myself
I cut for myself
I sing for myself
