YOSHKE FORT AVEK 
איאָשקע פאָרט אװעק 

Yiddish - YOSHKE IS LEAVING 
 

Don't buy me gifts,
and don't make me beautiful.
Buy yourself a pair of boots
You have to go to the Army, Oh Oh!

Chorus:
Yoshke is leaving.
Another hour and another hour,
the train is leaving.

Don't lament and don't cry,
It's all the same.
I will be with the Russians,
The handsomest in the group, Oh oh!

Chorus:
Yoshke is leaving.
Another hour and another hour,
the train is leaving.

The train has already arrived,
And fear takes hold of me.
Oh Mother, dear
Yoshke is leaving.

Chorus:
Yoshke is leaving.
Another hour and another hour,
the train is leaving.

Be well, then, my dear Bride,
I will miss you
more than anyone else.
Oh oh oh,
Yoshke is leaving,
another kiss and another kiss
The train is leaving.

Above is a little bridge,
And beneath is a small river,
Yoshke is leaving,
And leaves her with a belly
Oy oy.
Yoshke is leaving,
let's say goodbye
The train is leaving.
