EIZO MEDINAH

Eyzo medinah, eyzo medinah
Eyzo medinah, meyuchedet beminah
Memshalah lochetzet,
medinah nilchetzet
Eyzo medinah, Eyzo medinah!

Anashim bochim, mechirim olim
Leshalem misim vegam kupat cholim.
Ein kvar avodah, hakupah reikah,
Ein mimah lichyot, Sagru et halishkah.
Bekneset hem yoshvim, aleinu hem ovdim,
Halchu haches'chonot, halchu hapitzuim
Lanu kvar nim'as, dafku od k'nas.
Gam al hachalav hosifu et hamas.

Eyzo medinah, eyzo medinah
Eyzo medinah, meyuchedet beminah
Memshalah doreshet, kesef mevakeshet
Eyzo medinah, eyzo medinah!

Yesh lanu sarim, rak kise rotzim.
Lo osim davar verak mavtichim
Eyfo hashivyon, eyfo hachazon
Eyfo hamusar, Eyzeh bizayon!
Mah ashir lachem umah asaper,
Yesh d'varim rabim aleihem nevater.
Lamrot habalagan vehachesronot
At medinateinu ledorei dorot!

WHAT A COUNTRY

What a country, what a country
What a country, one of a kind
The government presses,
A country under pressure
What a country, what a country!

People are weeping, the prices go up
to paying taxes and also for health care
There's nomore work, the cash register's empty
There's nothing to live on, they closed the office.*
In Parliament they sit, and con us
the savings - gone the compensations - gone
We're fed up, they hit us with another fine
And also on the milk they've added a tax

What a country, what a country
What a country, one of a kind
The government demands, requests money
What a country, what a country!

We've got ministers, they just want their seat
They don't do anything and just promises
Where is the equality, where is the vision?
Where is the morality, what a disgrace!
What can I sing to you & what can I tell,
There are many things we'll have to give up on
Despite the mess and the deficiencies
You're our country, for all the generations!
