CHIRIBIM 

Ksheharabi sof kol sof hechlit isha lakachat
Hit'asfu hachasidim lir'ot et hamutzlachat
Et harabi sha'alu
"Mma nedunya titen la?"
Az hashiv lahem harav
"Eten la ma she'ein la"

Chiribim chiribom
Chiribim bom bom bom
Bom bo bom
Chiribim chiribom
Chiribim bom bom bom
Bom bo bom

Hu yom yom nasa tfila la'el shebashamyim
Hi yom yom bishla lo lokshen
vetafra garbayim
Layla layla et hatris lisgor haya ozer la
Vesham'u hachasidim

Chiribim...

Kach avru mispar shanim

Ho rabenu matai sof sof nishte itcha lechayim
Vedavka lasimcha hazot hizmin harav otanu
Umibno asher nolad
mila achat shamanu

CHIRIBIM 

When the Rabbi finally decided to take a wife
The Chasidim gathered to see the fortunate one
They asked the Rabbi
"What dowry will you give her?"
And the Rabbi answered
"I will give her what she hasn't got yet"

Chiribim chiribom
Chiribim bom bom bom
Bom bo bom
Chiribim chiribom
Chiribim bom bom bom
Bom bo bom

Every day he prayed to God above
Every day she cooked him noddles
and sewed his socks
Every night he helped her close the shutters
And the Chasidim heard
how he sings to her -

Chiribim chiribom...

A few years passed
and they all raised their hands
Well Rabbi, when will we drink to life?
To this celebration the Rabbi invited us
And from his son when he was born
we heard one word -

Chiribim chiribom...
