LO YACHOL 
LO YACHOL LEHORID MIMECH ET HA'EINAIM 

Lo yachol lehorid mimech et ha'einaim
me'einaich hanir'ot ketag'liot
lo yachol lehorid mimech et ha'einaim
mis'fataich hamefikot mar'galiot

Be'emet achrei kol kach harbeh shanim
afilu mehaboker od lifnei shetir'chetzi panim
uveyoshvech memalmelet lamar'ah
mish'tanah kol shniyah kol tnu'ah

Lo yachol lehorid mimech et ha'einaim
rak yoter veyoter mit'magnet
lo yachol lehorid mimech et ha'einaim
rak yoter veyoter mit'hapnet

Uch'shekvar nidmeh li she'ani oleh al hashvil
she'elei ganech hasodi oti yovil
doke az at makah oti b'sanverim
bekismei hapash'tut shel hadvarim

Irgunei nashim mit'naplim alai betochachah
she'ani ozev alaich et ol habayit
vehamishpachah mah shenachon
aval mah e'eseh ein li p'nai, lo ein li p'nai
lo yachol lehorid mimech et einai

Uchshe'at tofeset merchak at lo kan bichlal
az ani k'mo hachatan hamerachef
mehatziyur shel Mark Chagall
zeh lach ot: kol makom bo telchi tid'rechi
ta'amdi ufit'om techaychi

Lo yachol lehorid mimech et ha'einaim
yafati yafati yafati
lo lo lo lo lo orid mimech et ha'einaim
yafati yafati yafati

I CAN'T 
I CAN'T TAKE MY EYES OFF OF YOU 

I can't take my eyes off of you
from your eyes that look like discoveries
I can't take my eyes off of you
from your lips that draw out pearls

Truly after so many years
even in the morning before you wash your face
and as you sit mumbling to the mirror
each second, each movement changes

I can't take my eyes off of you
I just get more and more magnetized
I can't take my eyes off of you
I just get more and more hypnotized

And when it seems to me that I'm on a path
that will lead me to your secret garden
you knock me blind
by the magic of the simplicity of things

Women's organizations rebuke me
that I leave you the burden of the house
and the family which is right
but what will I do, I have no free time, no free time
I can't take my eyes off of you

And when you want some distance
you're not here at all
so I'm like a hovering groom
from the paiting of Mark Chagall
it's a sign to you: each place you walk on you'll tread
you'll stand and suddenly smile

I can't take my eyes off of you
my beautiful, my beautiful, my beautiful
no no no no no I won't take my eyes off you
my beautiful, my beautiful, my beautiful
