CALM - TRANQUILITY

Al hamachane nidlak yare'ach
al hama'ahal kochav zore'ach
Vehazman kmo gumi mitmare'ach
lel shabat bli ta'am uvli re'ach
Vehasheket et halev kore'a

Ezo min shalva lelo osim shum davar
Ezo min shalva ve'od shavua avar


Hashabat bichlal ena overet
kvar karanu et iton ha'erev
Sharnu kvar shirey magal vecherev

kvar tafarnu et hachor bagerev
Ufatarnu tashbetzim bli heref

Ezo min…..

Af michtav mimcha od lo higi'a
od me'at hamefaked yofi'a
Veyachzor vadai shuv lehavti'ach:
"bekarov laregila agi'a
Shetikni shuv shnayim bayatzi'a"

Ezo min……

A moon is lit above the army
base a star shines over the tents
Time stretches like rubber
it is Friday night, no taste no smell
And the silence tears the heart

What calmness and peacefulness we do nothing
What calmness and peacefulness and another week as passed

The Sabath doesn't want to end
we read all the news papers already
We sang all the songs we normally sing around the bon fire
We mended the hole in the sock and finished all the cross words



I haven't received any letter from you
In a minute the commander will arrive
And will probably promise again:
So buy two good tickets
and I will come soon to my regular time off
