Ha'erev yored alai ofek bo'er,
| The evening sets upone me the horizon burns,
winds made the tree-top tremble,
and we will tell around the bonfire
of the Man of the Palmach, his name is Dudu:
With us he walked on the disputed journey,
with us he surveyed the border,
in the "kumzitz" he would make melodies, and how!
with us he'd "pinch" from the hen-roost...
They'd serve Finjan and say:
is there still a Palmachnik like Dudu?
He had a hairstyle of frizzy hair,
he had a smile in his eyes
and time off-duty: girls up to the neck -
he laughed up to the heart of the sky.
As the night was brought down, it won't pass from the heart -
he creaked in darkness relying on time,
he carried a child from the sea to the shore,
fondle his cheeks and he was calm.
The boys though: he's lost,
where did you roll off to, oh Dudu?
and behold the "zeks" comes one evening,
the moon of summer shined,
and Dude embraced the satan at hand,
and we secretly went out at night...
At dawn we brough him from the battle.
the top of the cypress slowly bowed down
only he who lost the good in his harm,
can understand us...
Behold, they said and told:
does he still laugh over there, Dudu?
