AZ LAMAH LI POLITIKAH ACHSHAV 

Alfei shchirim shel cherev mitkansim b’toch misgad
Hem medabrim alai ach lo iti
V’dod shel hashechen sheli
kibal et hasamgad
Siprah ishto shel ben shel achoti
Aah achoti, aah achoti

Shamir u’petrozilia nifgashim b’afelah
Liftor et hamatzav hanuchichi
U’v’new york hamtzi’u zahn chadash shel machalah
V’ish echad to’en shehu achi
Aah achi, aah achi

Shikarti she’amarti she’hakol kol kach niflah
Ki shum devar b’etzem lo haya nachon
Gam hakadur shelanu shehafach lemeiruba
Shechach sh’hu agol
Shechach sh’hu agol
Shechach sh’hu agol
Iskei harocknrol..

Besan francisco hagsharim zkukim l’hachlamah
B’rusia od ason shel rakovot
Hahamonim hafilu beverlin et hachomah
V’li v’lach notar rak lekovot
Aah lekovot, aah lekovot

Shikarti she’amarti she’hakol kol kach niflah
Ki shum devar b’etzem lo hayah nachon
Gam hakadur shelanu shehafach lemeubruba
Shachach she’hu agol
Shachach she’hu agol
Shachach she’hu agol
Ani be’rocknroll

Lamah even be’ramallah sutah m’meslulah lulah?
Lamah even be’ramallah sutah m’meslulah lulah?
At v’gam ani b’toch argaz
Shar v’at rokedet bamerkaz

Shikarti she’amarti shehakol kol kach niflah
Shchirim shel cherev mitkansim b’toch ha’afelah
U’v’new york hamtzilu zan chadash shel machalah
Margish kol kach niflah
Margish kol kach niflah
Anachnu am s’golah
Anachnu am s’gola

Az lama li politika achshav?

SO WHY WOULD I WANT POLITICS NOW 

Thousands of mercenaries gather in a mosque
talking about me, but not with me
cousin of my neighbor talked to
the assistant battalion commander (abc)
so says the wife of my sister's son
ohh my sister, my sister..

Coriander & parsley meet in the dark
to discuss the current situation
and In NY a new disease was invented
and one man claims to be my brother
ohh my brother, my brother...

I lied when I said everything is wonderful
cause nothing was true at all
and our ball that turned into a square
is now in denial


I'm in the rock & roll business...

In San Francisco the bridges need some healing
and in Russia another train crashed
the mass broke the wall in Berlin
and all you and me can do is hope
oh hope... oh hope...

why a stone in Ramallah diverts its course,
of course, you and me are sitting
in a cardboard box
I'm singing and you dance in the middle

so why do I need politics now?
