[Lyrics - English version below]
Oyfn yam ve'et a vintele
un di khvalyes shlogn
Khob zikh farlibt
in a sheen yingele
khob nit farvemen tzu zogn
Ikh hob zikh g'boyt a shtibele
arum un arum mit fenster
Fun d'ale kartinkes
vos ikh hob g'senn
bist du bay mir der sheenster
On the sea the wind is blowing
and the waves are breaking
I'm in love with a handsome youth
But I'm too shy to say anything
I have built a little house
with windows all around
Of all the pictures I have seen
You are the most beautiful
in my home.
