Namah Yaffo, namah

Amlah ha’ir vedai lah,

Namah Yaffo, namah...

JAFFA IS SLEEPING

LIKE YAFFO 

Sleeping, Yaffo is sleeping
silence in the outskirts
a trail of camels somewhere out there
marching at midnight

The night falls, suddenly asleep
there lies a tired city
as though dead
but what are the voices...

Sleeping, Yaffo is sleeping...

The city laboured and has had enough
they will ring during the day
and not at night
the never ending bells

Sleeping, Yaffo is sleeping...
