It started with two parents
Merry and young
That gave birth for me
To my family
And when I have a party
Just see who comes
Just see who comes

Dad comes
Grandpa comes
Aryeh from Kfar Saba comes
Baruch comes, Welcome
With the aunt, great aunt
Dad comes
Grandpa comes
Even Grandma yababa
Hello and Welcome
Whoever comes, welcome!

They bring me gifts
Big ones and small ones too
They put them in the corner
And they go out to th garden
They kiss my sister
And they come to pinch me
And they come to pinch me

Dad comes...

And afterwards in the yard
They begin to talk
Arguing by shouting
And almost get into a fight
But when the honour (ceremony) is ready
They run to the table
They run to the table

Dad comes...

And after that they ask
me to get up and sing
and they call when I sing:
Oh how talented the little one is
And today for the party
Just look who comes
Just look who comes

Dad comes...
