Az imi mochah/bochah dim'ah: "ben yakir haben li,
al ta'uf levad bakor shema titz'tanen li"
"Al tiv'ki, imi, chaval al me'or einaich
kach vachach ehyeh tzipor ve'efros knafaim"
Sachah ima uvochah: "Itzik, otzari li

Ardalaim shetin'al, k'shor tza'if al oref -
oya li ve'alelai, ko kasheh hachoref."

"Gufiyah chamah til'bash, al na titparche'ach,

Az be'etzev achayech, ima, el einaich
Lo nat'nah ahavatech li lif'ros k'nafaim.
Al haderech etz omed, tzamarto tashu'ach
