ARBA'A ACHIM

Pesach 

Beyom bahir venehedar
Yatsu mitoch hahagadah
Chacham vetam, rashah gadol,
vezeh shelo yadah lishol.
Chacham vetam, rashah gadol,
vezeh shelo yadah lish'ol.

Uchsheh arba'at ha'achim,
Yatzu lanua bad’rachim
Miyad mikol arba ruchot
Prachim higiyu uvrachot
Miyad mikol arba ruchot
Prachim higiyu uvrachot


Pagash chacham bechachama
Ahav hatam et hat’mimah
Veharasha betor ishah
Tafas mirsha’at ayumah
Veharasha betor ishah
Tafas mirsha’at ayumah


Vezeh shelo yadah lishol
Lakach et hayafah mikol
Shilev yado betoch yadah
Vechazar itah la’hagadah
Shilev yado betoch yadah
Vechazar itah la’hagadah


Le’an hovilu hadrachim?
Heichan arba’at ha’achim?
Bashir shelanu yedidai
Asur lishol yoter midai!
Bashir shelanu yedidai
Asur lishol yoter midai!










FOUR BROTHERS

Passover

On a clear and beautiful day
(Four characters) stepped out from the Hagadah:
The wise and the simple, the very wicked
And the one who didn’t know how to ask
The wise and the simple, the very wicked
And the one who didn’t know how to ask

And when the four brothers
Went out to travel the roads,
Immediately from all four winds
Flowers and blessings arrived
Immediately from all four winds
Flowers and blessings arrived


The wise son met a wise daughter
The simple son loved the simple daughter
And the wicked son, for a wife
Landed himself an a horrible mean woman
And the wicked son, for a woman
Landed himself a horrible mean woman


And the one who didn’t know how to ask
Got the most beautiful girl of all,
He took her hand in his
And returned with her to the Hagadah
He took her hand in his
And returned with her to the Hagadah


Where did the paths lead?
Where are the four brothers?
In our song, my friends,
It’s forbidden to ask too much!
In our song, my friends,
It’s forbidden to ask too much!
