BESIMLAH ADUMAH (2)

IN A RED SKIRT

At lo mevinah at stam yaldah k'tanah
mah rotzim mimech
kulam kor'im bishmech
el tehi t'mimah

Besimlah adumah ushtei tzamot,
yaldah k'tanah, yechidah vetamah
amdah vesha'alah - lamah?
Vekol hachayalim vekol hatotachim
amdu chivrei panim ve'lo matz'u t'shuvah
amdu chivrei panim ve'lo matz'u t'shuvah

At lo mevinah...

Besimlah adumah...

At lo mevinah...

Besimlah adumah umasteka!

You don't understand, you're just a little girl
what do they want from you
everyone calls your name
don't be an innocent girl

In a red skirt with ponytails
a small girl, alone and innocent
stood and asked why
and all the soldiers and all the "cannons"*
stood pale-faced and did not find an answer
stood pale-faced and did not find an answer

You don't understand...

In a red skirt...

You don't understand...

In a red, familiar skirt!
