ACHOT LANU KTANAH 
אחות לנו קטנה 

Achot lanu k'tanah
veshadaim ein lah
mah na'aseh la'achoteinu
bayom sheyedubar bah.

Im chomah hi
im chomah hi
niv'neh aleiha tirat kasef
uvli ashrai.

Im delet hi
im delet hi
natzur aleiha lu'ach arez
yihyeh kedai/tov

Ani chomah, chomah chomah
veshadai kamigdalot.

OUR LITTLE SISTER 
 

We have a little sister
and she has no bosom
what shall we do for our sister
in the day when she shall be spoken for?

If she be a wall
if she be a wall
we will build upon her a palace of silver
but without credit

If she be a door
if she be a door
we will inclose her with boards of cedar
it will be worthwhile/good

I am a wall, a wall, a wall
and my breasts like towers.
