KOL YOM MATCHILA SHANA 
ROSH HASHANA 

Haraki'a od bahir
Ach ba'rev kvar karir
Bachalon asher poneh layam
I efshar ulai lomar
Shehakayitz kvar nigmar
Ach hashemesh mitayef yoter mukdam
Al hadeshe bechatzer
Yom matchil lehitkatzer
Ach od k'mo davar lo hishtanah
Im ata yedid emet
He'emad panim ka'et
Al tagid li she'avar kvar od shanah.

Lo zeh lo yachol lihyot
Hashanim hen lo shniyot
Im tabit tuchal lir'ot
Sheklum lo hishtanah
Kol chushai mitkomemim
Ten li od kamah yamim
Lo hispakti shum davar hashanah.

Ein od geshem be'anan
Al tikfotz al kol siman
Al tered lifnei hatachanah
Al tar'eh li bayoman
Tihyeh k'mo av rachman
Al ta'ir oti ani od yeshenah.

Lo zeh lo yachol lihyot...

Shannnnnah shannnnnah
Shannnnnah od shanah
Shannnnnah shannnnnah
Al tagid li she'avar kvar od shanah.

EVERY DAY A YEAR STARTS 
NEW YEAR 

The sky's still clear
But in the evening it's already cold
In the window that turns to the sea
Perhaps it's impossible to say
That the summer already finished
But the sun gets tired earlier
On the grass in a yard
A day starts to get shorter
But still as thought nothing changed
If you are a true friend
Hold your face now
Don't tell me that another year's already passed

No this can't be
Years are not seconds
If you look you'll be able to see
That nothing changed
All my senses rebel
Give me a few more days
I didn't manage to do anything this year.

There's no rain in the clouds yet
Don't jump at each sign
Don't get off before the stop
Don't show me in the journal
Be like a merciful father
Don't wake me I'm still sleeping

No this can't be...

Year year
Year another year
Year year
Don't tell me that another year's already passed...
