SHIR AM NAKI

Erev yom shabat,
sha'ah chamesh ad shesh,
vechol echad kim'at
shuv mit'chadesh.
Bechol shiv'ah yamim
hamik'lachot sharot,
hamayim shuv chamim
batzinorot.

Shvil ba'emtza shvil batzad,
chafufim echad echad.
Eizeh nikayon vaseder,
eizeh yofi shel mitz'ad.
(x2)

Mayim vesabon,
chash'mal dofek sha'on,
ve'lo osim chesh'bon
im hachesh'bon.
Mi bosem lafanim,
vechultzat shabat yafah,
vezug shel levanim
lehach'lafah.

Shvil ba'emtza shvil batzad...

Rega shel chalom
laguf velan'shamah
kulam omrim shalom
umah nishma.
Afilu guf chorek
hu mar'gish pit'om tari,
vechol echad shorek
shir am naki.

Shvil ba'emtza shvil batzad...

CLEAN FOLK SONG

It's Saturday evening,
the time's five to six,
and almost everyone
is again restored.
Every six days
the showers sing,
the water is warm again
in the water pipes.

A path in the middle, a path on the side,
lathered up one by one.
Such cleanliness and order,
what a beautiful march.
(x2)

Water and soap,
electricity, a clock is ticking,
and nobody cares
about the bill.
Who scents the face,
and a beautiful Sabbath shirt,
and a pair of underwear
for changing into.

A path in the middle, a path on the side...

A dream moment
for the body and the soul
everyone says hello
and how are you.
Even a creaking body
suddenly feels fresh,
and everyone whistles
a clean folk song.

A path in the middle, a path on the side...
