HASELA HA'ADOM

Me'ever leharim velamidbar,
omrot ha'agadot, yeshno makom,
she'ish mimeno chai od lo chazar,
ve'hu nikra hasel'a ha'adom.
Ho, hasel'a - ha'adom - ha'adom.

Shloshah yatz'u laderech im shki'ah,
mineged lahato harei adom,
chalom yashan, mapah umeimiyah,
lak'chu hem el hasel'a ha'adom.
Ho, hasel'a - ha'adom - ha'adom.

Rishon halach gashash, merim panav,
mabit bakochavim shebamarom,
ach hamar'eh asher ra'u einav -
hayah mar'eh hasel'a ha'adom
Ho, hasel'a - ha'adom - ha'adom.

Bevadai, et chanu
bein avanim,
amar echad, k'mo makeh chalom:
ro'eh ani - paneiha levanim.
Anu re'av: hasel'a ha'adom.
Ho, hasel'a - ha'adom - ha'adom.

Gilgal hashemesh al rosham halam
vehem nosh'mim avak midbar vecham
ulefet'a - k'mo kafa

ra'u hem et hasel'a ha'adom.
Ho, hasel'a - ha'adom - ha'adom.

Mate'ach hayeriot hayah katzar.
Ganach echad: niftz'ati - veyidom.
Anu re'av bepeh male afar:
hig'anu el hasel'a ha'adom.
Ho, hasel'a - ha'adom - ha'adom.

Me'ever leharim velamidbar...

THE RED ROCK

Across mountains and the desert
the stories say, there's a place
that a living person has not yet returned from,
and it's called the red rock.
Oh, the red - red - rock.

Three went on the way with the sunset,
against the the mountains' red scorching,
an old dream, a map and a water-bottle
they did take to the red rock.
Oh, the red - red - rock.

The first went (as) navigator, lifting his face,
lookin at the stars up high,
but the view that his eyes saw -
was the view of the red rock
Oh, the red - red - rock.

Surely, they encamped some time
between stones,
one said, like smiting a dream:
I see - its face is white.
His mates answered: the red rock.
Oh, the red - red - rock.

The sun - revolving, beating their heads
and they breathed the hot, desert dust
and suddenly - as though by freezing
it silenced them -
they did see the red rock.
Oh, the red - red - rock.

The shooting salvo was short.
One groaned, I'm wounded and he went silent.
HIs mates answred with a mouthful of ash:
we have arrived at the red rock.
Oh, the red - red - rock.

Across mountains and the desert...
