ABA
FATHER

 

 

Baleilot menasa lo nirdemet
Biglalcha kol dima melucha
Al tachshov sheani mitlonenet
Tfilati hi pashut lirotcha
Lechabek et haish shebecha

Pizmon:
Vehayalda haktana shehikarta
Hishtanta, mevina ktzat yoter
Abba, bo, vechazor kvar habayta
Sheneshev lefachot ledaber

Baleilot rak otcha medamyenet
Bechadri kan muli tmunatcha
Al tachshov she'ani mitalemet
Mechaka bechol yom leshuvcha
Im halev shepo'em et shimcha

Pizmon, twice
Vehayalda...

At night I try, but do not fall asleep
Every salty tear is because of you
Do not think that I am complaining
My prayer is simply to see you
To hug the man that is inside you.

Chorus:
And the little girl that you knew
Has changed and understands a bit more
Father, come and return home already
So that we can at least sit and talk.

At night I imagine only you
In my room your picture is here facing me
Do not think that I am ignoring you
I wait every day for your return
With the heart that beats your name

Chorus, twice
And the little girl...

Spanish translation

Papá

Por las noches trato, pero no me duermo

Cada l ágrima salada es por ti

No creas

que me quejo

mi plegaria es simplemente verte a ti

abrazar al hombre que hay en ti

 

Estribillo:

Y la niña pequeña

que conociste

Ha cambiado, entiende un poco más

Papá, ven, vuelve ya a casa

para sentarnos por lo menos a conversar

 

Por las noches solo a ti

te imagino

En mi cuarto está tu foto frente a mí

No creas que te ignoro

Espero cada día

tu regreso

Con el corazón que late

tu nombre

 

Estribillo (2)

Y la niña.
