El eretz sheruchot meyalelot ba et shirey ha’eres
Holech ani la’ayara sheli

TUVIA'S VILLAGE

TUVIA'S SHTETL

Where to? Where is the path leading to?
Where to? Where is my path leading to?

To celebrate a 'simcha' or 'yom tov'
To see two pigeons on a roof
To hear the drunken klezmers
whose songs pinch the heart of the evening
It is leading to my shtetl

Where to? Where is the path leading to?
Where to? Where is my good horse pulling?

To a deserted house
To snow and hunger
To a tailor's needle sparkling as a golden tear
My horse is pulling to my shtetl

Where to? Where is the path leading to?
Where to? Where am I going?

To a thousand beggars
To a thousand cantors
To a land in which the winds are wailing
the songs of lullabies
I am going to my shtetl
