Vos du vilst, dos vil ikh ikh (What you want, that's what I want too) - Yiddish theater song

Vos du vilst dos vil ich oych (that's a Germanic spelling used by some) was written by Jacobs Jacob and Sholom Secunda for the musical Pini From Pinchev which played in Brooklyn in 1936 (I don't know if that was the first performance).

My band Mappamundi recorded this song about 20 years ago and we've performed it often at weddings; you can listen to it or buy it here (click below):

Here's the sheet music if you want it, with translation, transliteration, chords, etc:

Email me (jane@mappamundi.com) if you'd like the translation.
