HALEITZAN

SHIR HA'LEITZAN DANCE 

Hayo hayah pa’am,
Kach savta omeret,
Hayo hayah pa’am kirkas.
Bein chevel lechevel,
Sham d’mut mekar’keret
Zot d’mut haleitzan hananas.

Shemesh olah, yored gam haleil
Ach haleitzan od mam’shich vetzohel.

Katan veza’ir hu nir’ah mul hayeter,
Ach et lazirah hu nich’nas -
Poretz hakahal bit’shuot chen lefeta’
Lich’vod haleitzan hananas.

Shemesh olah...

Einav meo’lam lo yad’u mah zeh bechi,
Atzuv rak eitzlo hamabat.
Dim’ah me’olam lo yardah lo al halechi,
Ki hu lehatz’chik rak no’ad.

Shemesh olah...

Ve’erev echad aviv min hachevel
Nafal vegufo hit’rasek.
Bachah hakirkas eit tamnuhu bakever,
Ach b’no haleitzan od tzochek.

Shemesh olah...

THE CLOWN

THE CLOWN SONG 

Once upon a time,
Or so my grandma says,
There once was a circus.
Weaving between the tightropes
There lurched a tiny figure:
The one and only dwarf clown.

The sun arose, the night would fall,
But the clown with merriness hailed all.

So minute and lightweight seemed he in his setting,
But whenever he entered the circus ring–
The crowd would roar out a tumultuous applause
To welcome the one and only dwarf clown.

The sun arose…

His eyes never knew what it was to weep,
Sad only the look in his eye.
No tears ever fell on his cheek,
For to make people laugh was his destiny.

The sun arose…

But one Spring eve, from the rope on high
He plummeted and shattered lay he.
The circus wept when they laid him to rest,
But his son, the clown, laughs on with the best.

The sun arose…
