YALDUT NISHKACHAT

Kvish yashan
Shvil bagan
Etz u'bayit
Aba kan, Ima sham
Kan nish'arti
Mah she'haiti, pa'am, mizman
Mah she'achshav yaldut nishkachat.

Tzrif yarok
Lo rachok beit hasefer
Mi nish'ar mi avar
Mi odenu
Mah she'hayinu pa'am, mizman
Mah od mavi oti tamid
El otah yaldut nishkachat.

Zocher ech she'halachnu derech keva
Le'orech harechov hamitroken
Davar lo hishtana
Rak po vesham do'heh hatzeva
Ulai zeh rak ha'lev she'hizdaken

Od shanah kvar lamadnu
Mi ani, mi atah
Kvar ibadnu.. Ma she'hayinu
Pa'am, mizman
Mah od mavi otcha tamid
El otah yaldut nishkachat

Zocher ech she'hivtachnu bli lada'at
Matai ve'ech nachzor le'hipagesh
Nid'me she'rak etmol
Aval ha'shemesh kvar shoka'at
Ulai zeh rak ha'lev she'mitragesh

Shvil bagan
Etz u'bait
Aba kan, Ima sham
Kan nish'arti mah she'hayiti
Pa'am, mizman
Mah od mavi oti tamid
El otah yaldut nishkachat

FORGOTTEN CHILDHOOD

Old road
A path in the garden
A tree and a home.
Father here, mother there
Here I stayed.
What I once, long ago, was.
What is now a forgotten childhood.

A green shack,
School is not far away
Who is left? Who moved?
Who is still what we used to be once, long ago
What still brings me back always
to that forgotten childhood.

Remember how we used to walk
Along the emptying street
Nothing has changed,
only the colour faded here and there
Maybe it's the heart that's getting older.

Another year, we have learnt
Who I am, who you are
We lost what we used to be
Once, long ago
What still brings you back, always
to that same forgotten childhood.

Remember how we promised, without knowing
When and how we'll come back to meet again
It seems that is was just yesterday,
but the sun is already sinking
Maybe it's just the heart that is excited (emotional).

A path in the garden
A tree and a home
Father here, mother there
Here I stayed what I used to be
Once, long ago
What still brings me back to that same
Forgotten childhood.
