SHISHAH

SIX

Hayinu shishah, katuv al hakir,
nish'arti echad im sofrim gam oti,
kol hachaverim shehayu li, ovrim li barosh achshav.

Zeh shehalach ach'rei kesef gadol,
vezeh shemalach al shloshah rechovot,
kol hachaverim shehayu li, ovrim li barosh achshav.

Echad sham mitnad'ned banad'nedot shebaganim,
hachaverim sheli hayo hayu tamid k'tzat meshunim,
echad kafu al hagader, ki lo yad'a lig'dol,
echad m'nukav mikadur tish'ah milimeter, oy.

Kol hachaverim shehayu li, ovrim li barosh achshav.

Shishah yaradnu le'Eilat,
im lo sofrim et hahi, she'asta lanu bayad,
kol hachaverim shehayu li, ovrim li barosh achshav.

Shishah, hazman mit'kavetz,
bir'chovot Tel Aviv, yesh al sh'meinu od etz,
kol hachaverim shehayu li, ovrim li barosh achshav.

Echad himer tamid al hak'laf halo nachon,
hachaverim sheli hayo hayu li chasrei k'tzat bitachon,
echad ne'elam vehashmu'ot radfu oto lechol makom,
zeh shediber beshem kulam, medaber achshav rak le'atzmo.

Kol hachaverim shehayu li, ovrim li barosh achshav.

Shishah, katuv al hakir,
nish'arti echad, im sofrim gam oti,
kol hachaverim shehayu li, ovrim li barosh achshav.

There were six of us, it's written on the wall,
there's only one left, including me,
all the friends that I had, are in my head now.

The one that went after big money,
and the one that reigned over three streets,
all the friends that I had, are in my head now.

The one that swings on the swings in parks,
my friends would always be a bit different,
the one frozen on the fence, for he didn't know to grow up,
the one scraped by a 9mm bullet, ouch.

All the friends that I had, are in my head now.

The six of us went down to Eilat,
not including the one that did the hand,
all the friends that I had, are in my head now.

Six, time shrinks,
in Tel Aviv streets, there's still a tree with our names
all the friends that I had, are in my head now.

The one that always bet on the wrong card,
my friends would always lack a bit of confidence,
the one that disappeared and rumours chased him in every place,
the one that spoke for all, now speaks only to himself.

All the friends that I had, are in my head now.

Six, it's written on the wall,
there's only one left, including me,
all the friends that I had, are in my head now.
