BELTZ, MAYN SHTETELE BELTZ 
YIDDISH 

Az ikh tu mir dermonen
Mayne kindershe yorn,
Punkt vi a kholem
Zet dos mir oys.
Vi zet oys dos hayzele,
Vos hot amol geglantzt,
Tzi vakst nokh dos beymele,
Vos ikh hob farflantzt?

Refrain:
Oy, oy, oy Belts, mayn shtetele Belts,
Mayn heymele, vu ikh hob
Mayne kindershe yorn farbrakht.
Belts, mayn shtetele Belts,
In ormen shtibele,
Mit ale kinderlekh dort gelakht.
Oy, eden Shabes fleg ikh loyfn
Mit ale inglekh tzuglaykh
Tzu zitzn unter dem grinem beymele,
Leynen bay dem taikh
Oy oy oy Belts,
Mayn shtetele Belts,
Mayn heymele, vu kh'hob gehat
Di sheyne khaloymes a sakh.

Dos shtibl is alt,
Bavaksn mit mokh
Dos shtibl is alt,
In fentzter keyn gloz
Dos shtibl is alt,
Tzeboygn di vent,
Ikh volt shoyn zikher
Dos vider nit derkent

Refrain.

Yiddish - BELTZ, MY LITTLE TOWN OF BELTZ 
 

So when I recall to myself
my childhood years,
just like a dream.
it seems to me
how does the little house look,
which used to sparkle with lights?
Does the little tree grow still
which I planted long ago?

Refrain:
Beltz, my little town of Beltz
The little house where
I spent my childhood!
Beltz, my little town of Beltz
The poor little room,
where I used to laugh with other children.
Every Shabes I would run
with all the other childen
to sit under a little green tree,
to read by the river bank
Oh oh oh Beltz
my little town of Beltz
My little home where I had
so many fine dreams.

The little house is old
overgrown wit moss.
the little house is old
no glass in the windows
the little house is old
the walls are bent
I would surely
not recognize it again.

Refrain.
