ETZ HASADEH 
KI HA'ADAM ETZ HASADEH 

Ki ha'adam - etz hasadeh,
k'mo ha'adam gam ha'etz tzome'ach;
k'mo ha'etz, ha'adam nigd'a,
Va'ani lo yode'a
efo hayiti ve'efo ehyeh,
k'mo etz hasadeh!

Ki ha'adam - etz hasadeh,
k'mo ha'etz hu sho'ef lemalah;
k'mo ha'adam, hu nisraf ba'esh,
va'ani lo yode'a
efo hayiti ve'efo ehyeh,
k'mo etz hasadeh!

Ahavti, vegam saneti,
ta'amti mizeh umizeh;
kavru oti bechelkah shel afar,
umar li - mar li bapeh,
k'mo etz hasadeh, k'mo etz hasadeh!

Ki ha'adam - etz hasadeh,
k'mo ha'etz hu tzame lemayim;
k'mo ha'adam, hu nish'ar tzame,
va'ani lo yode'a
efo hayiti ve'efo ehyeh
k'mo etz hasadeh!

Ahavti...

THE TREE IN A FIELD 
FOR THE HUMAN IS THE TREE IN A FIELD 

For the human is like the tree in a field,
like the human, the tree grows too;
like the tree, the human is chopped down,
and I don't know
where I've been and where I'll be,
like the tree in a field!

For the human is like the tree in a field,
like the tree he strives upwards;
like the human, it burns in fire,
and I don't know
where I've been and where I'll be,
like the tree in a field!

I loved, and I hated too,
I tasted this and that;
I was burried in a plot of dust,
and I feel sour - sour in my mouth,
like the tree in a field! (x2)

For the human is like the tree in a field,
like the tree he's thirsty for water;
like the human, it stays thirsty,
and I don't know
where I've been and where I'll be,
like the tree in a field!

I loved...
