[Lyrics - English version below]
Ikh bin e meidel in de jóren
vos hosti mir in kop fardreit
Ikh volt shoin lang a kaleh gevoren
un efsher khasene gehot
Un efsher geit es dir in nadan
mayn mama veit farkoifen a shtib
Nu lomir beide khasene hoben
vayl ikh dikh hob take lib
Un efsher geit es dir in yikhes
mayn zeide iz gewesen a rov
Nu lomir beide khasene hoben
un zol shoin nemen a sof
I am becoming an old maid already
and you've been fooling me
I've long wanted to be a bride
and get married
Maybe you're concerned about the dowry
My mother will sell a house
let us both marry
because I love you so much
Maybe you're concerned about pedigree
My grandfather was a rabbi
let us both marry
and let that be an end of it
