HER NOR, DU SHEYN MEYDELE 
הער נאָר דו שײן מײדעלע 

Her nor, du sheyn meydele,
her nor, du fayn meydele,
vos vestu ton in aza vaytn veg?
vos vestu ton in aza vaytn veg?

Ikh vel geyn in ale gasn,
ikh vel shrayen: "vesh tsu vashn!" -
abi mit dir tsuzamen zayn,
abi mit dir tsuzamen zayn.

Her nor, du sheyn meydele,
Her nor, du fayn meydele,
vos vestu esn in aza vaytn veg?
vos vestu esn in aza vaytn veg?

Broyt mit zalts vel ich esn,
tate un mame vel ich fargesn -
abi mit dir tsuzamen zayn,
abi mit dir tsuzamen zayn.

Her nor, du sheyn meydele,
Her nor, du fayn meydele,
af vos vestu shlofn in aza vaytn veg?
af vos vestu shlofn in aza vaytn veg?

Ich bin noch a yunge froy,
ich ken shlofn af a bintl shtroy -
abi mit dir tsuzamen zayn,
abi mit dir tsuzamen zayn.

Yiddish - JUST LISTEN, YOU PRETTY GIRL 
 

Just listen, you pretty girl,
just listen, you fine girl,
what will you do so far away?
what will you do so far away?

I will go in all the streets,
I will yell: "washing laundry!" -
only to be together with you,
only to be together with you.

Just listen, you pretty girl,
just listen, you fine girl,
what will you eat so far away?
what will you eat so far away?

Bread with salt will I eat,
Dad & Mom will I forget -
only to be together with you,
only to be together with you.

Just listen, you pretty girl,
just listen, you fine girl,
what will you sleep on so far away?
what will you sleep on so far away?

I am yet a young lady,
I can sleep on a bundle of straw -
only to be together with you,
only to be together with you.
