NIGUN ATIK

ZEMER ATIK 

Od nashuva el nigun atik
Vehazemer yif veye'erav
Od gavi'a meshumar nashik, nashik
Alizei einayim velevav.

Tovu, tovu ohalenu
Ki machol hiftzi'a
Tovi, tovu ohalenu
Od nashuva el nigun atik.

ANCIENT MELODY

ANCIENT SONG

Again we shall turn to the ancient melody
And the song shall give us pleasure
We'll kiss the old, guarded glass
With joyful eyes and heart.

Our tents are good
And the dance beckons
Our tents are good
Again we shall turn to the ancient melody.

MELODIA ANTIGA

Ainda retomaremos a melodia antiga
e a canção se embelezará e se tornará agradável
ainda beijarei uma taça de vinho envelhecida
e alegrarei teus olhos e teu coração

Que boas, que boas são nossas cabanas
porque nelas a dança brota
Que boas, que boas são nossas cabanas
ainda retomaremos a melodia antiga.

ANCIENT MELODY

We will yet return to the ancient melody
And the song will continue
We'll raise another glass,
with bright and cheerful eyes.

Our tents are filled with goodness
because the dance lifts us up
Our tents are filled with goodness
as we return to the ancient melody.

ALTE MELODIE

Wir wollen wieder eine alte Melodie hervorholen,
eine schöne und gefällige Melodie.
Wir wollen wieder unsere Gläser erheben
mit freudvollen Augen und Herzen.

Unsere Häuser sind glücklich,
weil das Tanzen begonnen hat
Unsere Häuser sind glücklich,
wenn wir wieder eine alte Melodie hervorholen...
