GOLIAT 

Zehu shir me'od atzuv
hanose kazeh ka'uv,
im tasim tach'boshet,
lo ya'azor lecha sh'nataim.
Hagibor shel hasipur
lehagid oto asur,
negaleh rak shehashem shelo
k'mo Efraim.

Yom aviv bik'far katan
tziporim sharot bagan,
nemalah overet
ach hamanginah nish'eret.
Bachatzer nolad tinok
umiyad hit'chil litz'ok
"lo kor'im li 'fraim -
sh'mi Goliat ve'lo acheret!"

Kol hatana"ch pachad mimeno k'mo mipil,
giborim barchu habaitah,
lochamim ziyfu t'agil.
Hem kar'u lo "hashed me'Ashkelon."

Beganon amar shalom
yeladim avru lidom,
ben chamesh uch'var his'pik
lehavi habaitah sel'a.
Hitamen kol yom sha'ot
bilehafri'a lechayot,
yesh omrim hayah lo kol
namuch miyam hamelach.

Kol hatana"ch pachad mimeno k'mo mipil,
giborim barchu habaitah,
lochamim lamdu chalil
hem kar'u lo besheket merachok.

Hineh ba eleinu, ba eleinu
Goli, Goliat
mekaveh shegam hapa'am
hu yach'shov oti nech'mad.
Hineh ba eleinu, ba eleinu
Goli, Goliat
mekaveh she'lo yid'roch alai,
ya'aseh oti gamad.

David melech Israel
kam baboker letayel,
merachok ro'eh hamon so'en
tzo'ek "hatzilu!"
bli lach'shov yoter miyom
hityatzev al hamakom,
chutz mishnei g'malim ug'di
od lo yed'u az mihu.

"Bo elai, Goliat nechmad,
shev etzli al kaf hayad."
"Kachah medabrim?"
Sha'al Goliyat ba'Ashkelon.
David melech hit'atzben,
"harogtekah tenagen!"
aval le'evro yarah,
kal'a lo bul beponi.

Kol hatana"ch amar todah vehitragesh,
"im tirtzeh lihyot malkeinu,
titkasher machar beshesh"
ume'az lo sham'u otam omrim,

Hineh ba eleinu, ba eleinu...

Mekaveh she'lo yid'roch alai
mekaveh she'lo yik'fotz alai
hineh ba eleinu Goliat.

GOLIATH 

This is a very sad song
the subject is such a painful one,
if you put on a bandage,
it won't help you for two years.
The hero of the story
to tell who it is is forbidden,
we'll reveal only that his name
is like Ephraim.

A spring day in a little village
birds are singing in the garden,
an ant passes by
but the melody remains.
In the courtyard an infant is born
and immediately started to yell
"I'm not called 'fraim -
my name's Goliath and nothing else!"

All of the Tana"ch fear him like an elephant,
heroes ran away to their homes,
fighters faked their age.
They call him "demon from Ashkelon."

In nursery school he said 'Shalom'
and kids passed at attention,
five years old and already managed
to bring a rock home.
He exercised for hours each day
in bothering animals,
there are those who say his voice was
lower than the Dead Sea.

All of the Tana"ch fear him like an elephant,
heroes ran away to their homes,
fighters learned the flute
they called him quietly from afar.

Here he comes to us, comes to us
Goli, Goliath
I hope even this time
he'll think of me nicely.
Here he comes to us, comes to us
Goli, Goliath
I hope he won't step on me to me
and make me a dwarf.

David king of Israel
got up in the morning to walk around,
from afar he saw much noise
yelling "save me!"
without thinking more than a day
he reported to the place,
aside from two camels and a goat
they no longer knew who he is.

"Come here, nice Goliath,
sit by me on my hand."
"This is how one speaks?"
asked Goliath in Ashkelon.
David the King was irritated,
"play a murderteque!"
but he shot toward him,
hit a stamp on his pony.

All the Tana"ch said thanks and got excited,
"if you want to be our king,
phone tomorrow at six"
and since they were not heard saying,

Here he comes to us, comes to us...

I hope he won't step on me
I hope he won't jump on me me
here he comes to us, Goliath.
