S'trefn sibes zeyer fil
Kemat in yedn hoyz
Der mentsh geyt oyfn glaykh veg
Un glitshn zikh, nebekh, oys

Dos zelbe hot mit mir getrofn
Ikh zog aykh ofn klor
Az ikh hob keynmol nisht gekholemt
Tsu vern an aktior

Ikh bin geforn lernen toyre
Un a rebbe zayn
Ober dokh on umglik hot getrofn
Libe fraynde mayn:

Ikh hob zikh oysgeglitsht 2x
Der yitser horeh hot geshtupt mikh umetum
Er hot mir tsugeredt
Az ikh zol folgn im
Ikh hob zikh oysgeglitsht 2x
Oy, fraynde, a libe an umglik a sibe
Ikh hob zikh oysgeglitsht

Itsik iz a bokher
Vos arbet in a bank
hot er, nebekh, derfilt
az er iz epes krank

Gevolt hot er visn
in vos bashteyt zayn krent
iz er glaykh avektelofn
Tsu dem doktor frenk

Ikh ken nisht esn, un ken nisht ruen
Dos er zikh baklogt
Der doktor hot batrakht dem bokher
un tsu im gezogt

Du host zikh oysgeglitsht 2x
Du host gemeynt
Az du bist a gantser khvat
Fun tsufil hulyen hot es dikh farshaft
Ikh hob zikh oysgeglitsht 2x
Oy, itst veynt er, oy, doktor,,
Ikh bet dikh, oy, helf mir,
Vayl ikh hob zikh oysgeglitsht

Khana Pesl iz a meydl vos iz yung un sheyn
Ober shoyn a lange tsayt
Vi men zet zi in gas nisht geyn
Ikh tref amol ir mamen
Un freg ir, vos dos badayt
Zogt zi tsu mir, s'iz gornisht
S'darf nor goyern a shtikl tsayt

zi roymt mir ayn a sod
Az ir meydl iz farfirt
Vilt ir visn, libe fraynd
Vos mit dem meydl hot pasirt

zi hot zikh oysgeglitsht 2x
Farbrakht hot zi mit a bokher zeyer shpet
Biz der bokher hot zi ibergeredt
Zi hot zikh oysgeglitsht 2x
Oy, yetst shrayt zi: "El hata"
Ober s'iz shoyn tsu shpet
Vayl zi hot zikh...
