AMRU LO

Zehu sipur atzuv al yeled
achar kach na'ar
hayom kvar ish
hu lo sham'a kolam shel eleh
shehizhiru hu nish'ar adish
hu lo sham'a mah she'amru lo
lachen hayom hu be'esek bish

Amru lo shehachaim zeh lo mis'chak
vekuntzim po ein
amru lo she'hu much'rach lihyot chazak
ki oi lo lamisken

Amru lo sheyihyeh kvar ma'asi
ramzu lo sheyitbager

Od shehayah kulo rak yeled
beveit hasefer ha'amami
od k'shetalah bishmei hat'chelet
mabat atzuv k'tzat vecholmani
kvar az eino haytah pozelet
al chavatzelet ha'admonit

Amru lo sheyitrakez balimudim

Amru lo sheyihyeh kvar ma'asi
ramzu lo sheyitbager
az hu lo lamad shum lekach
ve'ein lo sechel gam lehitz'taer

THEY TOLD HIM

This is a sad story about a boy
after that a young lad
today (he's) already a man
he didn't listen to the voice of those
that warned him, he remained indifferent
he did not hear what they told him
therefore today he's in a bad business

They told him that life is not a game
and there are not "kuntzim" here
they told him that he needs to be strong
because woe to the wretched

They told him that it's gonna be practical
they hinted to him to mature
he did not learn then any moral lesson
and he doesn't even have a brain to regret

Back when he was still a child
in the folk school
when he still hung on the blue skies
a slightly sad look and dreaming
already then his eye was squinting
on the reddish sand-lily

They told him to concentrate on classes
because that's the most important
they told him that from girls and dances
it will end sadly

They told him that it's gonna be practical
they hinted to him to mature
he did not learn then any moral lesson
and he doesn't even have a brain to regret

Even when he went to soccer
he did not just search for victory
and with the excitement of a calf
he gave up on calm and confidence
and until today he's with the flag
and with the wrong colour.

They told him that the red shirt
is not a great find
they told him that he came here into trouble
and there is no way out.

They told him that it's gonna be practical
they hinted to him to mature
he did not learn then any moral lesson
and he doesn't even have a brain to regret
