BESIMLAH ADUMAH (2)

At lo mevinah at stam yaldah k'tanah
mah rotzim mimech
kulam kor'im bishmech
el tehi t'mimah

Besimlah adumah ushtei tzamot,
yaldah k'tanah, yechidah vetamah
amdah vesha'alah - lamah?
Vekol hachayalim vekol hatotachim
amdu chivrei panim ve'lo matz'u t'shuvah
amdu chivrei panim ve'lo matz'u t'shuvah

At lo mevinah...

Besimlah adumah...

At lo mevinah...

Besimlah adumah umasteka!

IN A RED SKIRT

You don't understand, you're just a little girl
what do they want from you
everyone calls your name
don't be an innocent girl

In a red skirt with ponytails
a small girl, alone and innocent
stood and asked why
and all the soldiers and all the "cannons"*
stood pale-faced and did not find an answer
stood pale-faced and did not find an answer

You don't understand...

In a red skirt...

You don't understand...

In a red, familiar skirt!
