Dana Dana

Aaron Zeitlin

Oyfn furl ligt dos kelbl,
Ligt gebundn mit a shtrik.
Hoykh in himl flit dos shvelbl,
Freyt zikh, dreyt zikh hin un krik.

Lakht der vint in korn,
Lakht un lakht un lakht,
Lakht er op a tog a gantsn
Mit a halber nakht.

Dana, Dana, Dana, Dana...
Dana Dana Dana Da...
Dana, Dana, Dana, Dana...
Dana Dana Dana Da...

Shrayt dos kelbl, zogt der poyer:
"Ver zhe heyst dikh zayn a kalb?
Volst gekert tsu zayn a foygl,
Volst gekert tsu zayn a shvalb."

Bidne kelber tut men bindn
Un men shlept zey un men shekht,
Ver s'hot fligl, flit aroyftsu,
Iz bay keynem nit keyn knekht.
