Medinah achat, pa'amaim yam

One country, a sea times two
and one lake and also malaria
one round sun,
one smart nation full of possesions
one headache and three pills
six days and seven nights.
One is our god, our god, one god
that is in the heavens and on earth.

A great immigration from 2000 years of exile,
two yearly vacations and one regular.
a day of victory, a day of defeat
a moment of security, 30 days of illness
Trumpeldo in the Galilee and a flute concerto
a half a dozen generals in the Jewish National Staff
One is our god, our god, one god
that is in the heavens and on earth.

One ancient nation, two ministers without portfolio,
the first is sad, the second is funny,
one difficult childhood, years of attrition
and whoever wants independence - please.
Five wars, Chermesh Brigade*
and one soldier playing shesh-besh.
One is our god, our god, one god
that is in the heavens and on earth.

Three soldiers tired at the post
and seventy kids laughing in the shelter
Three prisoners of zion went out to freedom,
one life prisoner in the sixth month.
Child's day, flower day and an anniversary.
And hill 24 is still not answering.
One is our god, our god, one god
that is in the heavens and on earth.

One country, a sea times two
and one lake and one tear
and malaria as well.
