KACH HOLCHIM HASHOTLIM 

Kach holchim hashotlim
ron balev ve'et bayad
min ha'ir umin hak'far,
min ha'emek, min hahar
bet"u bish'vat, bet"u bish'vat.

Lamah batem, hashotlim?
nach hakarka uvatzar
regumot s'viv nech'far
baharim uvamishor
bet"u bish'vat, bet"u bish'vat.

Mah y'he po, hashotlim?
Sh'til yavo bechol gumah
ya'ar ad yif'ros tzilo
al artzeinu agumah
bet"u bish'vat, bet"u bish'vat.

THUS WALK THE PLANTERS 

Thus walk the planters
song in the heart, spade in hand
from the city and from the village,
from the valley, from the mountain
on Tu Bishvat, on Tu Bishvat.

What has brought you planters here?
We strike the soil and the harvest
dig the marshes all around
in the mountain and the plain
on Tu Bishvat, on Tu Bishvat.

What will be here, planter?
Seedling will come in each hole
uncover until it spreads its shade
over our sad land
on Tu Bishvat, on Tu Bishvat.
