EICH HU SHAR HOW HE SINGS (The song starts with the Hebrew prayer for the dead)
Merachok hu shomea
tfilot bet hakneset male
reach erev shabat shuv ole
Ech kulam hitga-u bo
hayeled imkol hazahav
Vehasof kmo bikrav avud - soger alav
Ve'imo lachasha latinok
"od tir-eh lechulanu
tihey ga-ava mikolcha"
Vehasof kmo bikrav avud soger alav
Ech hu shar, ech hu shar
Hem rakdu misvivo
beteruf hu haya meushar
Ech hu shar ech hu shar
Ma nish-ar mehazohar
mikol hashirim ma nishar
Hem sagdu lo kmo el
hu haya sach hakol ben adam
bashchuna nemogim le-itam
rak hapachad hahu
halavan beorkav mitpatel
Hu chashav sheyamri ito - lo vehu nofel
Ech hu shar....
From far away he hears
the prayers coming from a full synagogue
The candles are lit
and the smell of the eve of the Sabath is rising
Everybody was proud of him -
the child with the golden voice
And the end - like a lost battle - closes in on him.
His mother whispered to the baby
who was shaking and crying
"You will see,
your voice will bring us great pride"
The heat from his Dad's hand as he sang and the fire in his eyes
And the end- like a lost battle - closes in on him.
How he sings, how he sings,
They danced around him
in ecstacy he was so happy.
How he sings , how he sings,
What is left from the glamour
and all the songs that he sang
They worshiped him like a God,
but he was only a human being
The voices he heard
in the neighbourrhood quietened slowly
Only that white fear
is winding in his veins
He wanted to fly with it but he fell.
How he sings.............
