BIS'DOT BEIT LECHEM

Or hayare'ach al hahar
lailah lavan bis'dot beit lechem
tan meyalel bekol nishbar
ana pana edri lalechet

Ach lanesher vela'ayit
ein li shem/ken ve'ein li bayit
hey chalili yaleil yaleil chalili

Ad leil osif lalechet
im tarmil ro'im al shechem
hey chalili yaleil yaleil chalili

Even mutelet al libi
ka'avanim bis'dot beit lechem
ru'ach over ba'asavim
ana pana edri lalechet

Ei sham besof haderech
at/hatechaki im redet erev
hey chalili yaleil yaleil chalili

At/hatechaki lahelech
im halechem vehamelach
hey chalili yaleil yaleil chalili
(x2)

Or hayare'ach al hahar
lailah lavan bis'dot beit lechem

IN THE FIELDS OF BETHLEHEM

The moonlight on the mountain
a white night in the fields of Bethlehem
a jackal howls in a broken voice
where has my flock turned to go

Oh the vulture and the eagle
I have no name/nest and no home
hey my flute, lament of my flute

Until nighttime I'll continue to go
with a shepherd's sack over my shoulder
hey my flute, lament of my flute

A stone lies on my heart
like the stones in the fields of Bethlehem
wind passes the grasses
where has my flock turned to go

Somewhere at the end of the road
you'll/will you wait as the evening sets
hey my flute, lament of my flute

You'll/will you wait for a traveller
with the bread and salt
hey my flute, lament of my flute
(x2)

The moonlight on the mountain
a white night in the fields of Bethlehem
