Sex Appeal! Sung (then) by Benzion Witler and Adam Aston - now by Mappamundi!

Another song which was popular both in Polish and in Yiddish - in this video, doing the song for the first time, we were nervous and we rushed a bit.

Stefania Gorska and Henryk Wars wrote the music. The Polish lyric is by Ludwik Starski; the Yiddish lyric is by Igor S. Korn-Teurer, more famous for serious Holocaust poetry.

I'm updating this post because I was asked for the words and translation for the Yiddish version of Sex Appeal and you can get them too:




You can see the originals here:
