    Shalom… The following is the lyrics for the song IMA – MEYDAD TASA. I got some problems trying o figure out the words but my sister understood the 2nd verse … So, here goes - (At least she’s 90% sure of the lyrics ok!
    Title : IMA
    Artist : MEYDAD TASA
    Mother who love me
    Who is always there for me
    Mother who worries, still always comforts me
    You fill my life with happiness and joy
    You are the only one who knows what’s inside my soul

    You hear when something hurts badly you here when life feel deeply lonely
    You guide me with your smiles and warm embrace.
    You’re here when something hurts badly, you’re here when life feel deeply lonely
    You hold me till I am safe again

    Wouldn’t have shown your feelings
    It’s our feelings that you feel
    Like my dreams, I dreamed about them somewhat you always make them real
    Because the least of things you tried to comprehend
    Exactly what I wanted you to understand.
    _____________________________________________________________

    Of course he repeated the chorus and so forth...

    beware the cleats

    in shwekeys "shema"
    Yet one image lingered, the tears on her face
    and mother's words FUMM their last embrace...

    Go listen to it. theres no R.

    funny, i was just discussing with a friend the words to chaim yisrael's "malachim"... we could not figure out some of the words, and i totally love that song so it bothered me that i missed a few words here and there. she found it somewhere on the computer tho, and send it to me. so funny to see how wrong you were when you get the real words :)

    Who knows the lyrics for the new york boys choir "Ride the waves"?

    We had the best laugh ever when I looked up the lyrics on their website because this is how my young kids sing it (you MUST actually listen to the track as you read this and follow it, you'll see how genuine it sounds):

    Like a father, like a friend, he stands there by your side
    Always has your best interest in mind
    And even though he seems so far, things just don't seem right
    And Donald Duck is looking for the light

    @cb1- I just ran your lyrics to Ben Bag Bag through Google translate. I think I'll make this the basis of my Purim shpiel.

    בֶּן בַּג בַּג אוֹמֵר: הֲפֺךְ בָּהּ וָהֲפֺךְ בָּהּ, דְּכֺלָּה בַּה; וּבַהּ תֶּחֱזֵי, וְסִיב וּבְלֵה בַּהּ, וּמִנַּהּ לָא תְּזוּעַ, שֶׁאֵין לְךָ מִדָּה טוֹבָה הֵימֶנָּה

    Can someone please listen to 'Daddy Come Home' (I don't think I can force myself through it once more), and tell me what on earth is being said towards the end, when I am convinced he says, "I hope my Daddy dies".

    And I'm not even going to get started on the high part.

    And in Shloime Gertner's song Besimcha, he randomly says 'Lipschitz' in the middle. Why?

    Does anybody know the lyrics to (and I dont know how to say this in a simpler way, so sorry!!) the first line of the stanza after the chorus in the London Girls Choir song Avinu Malkenu??? It sounds like "exterminate and make a flu" (I haven't really heard the song, but it was driving my friend crazy, and she showed it to me but I couldn't make out the words) as far as I know the lyrics arent googleable

    Cozimjewish:
    Here's an e-mail exchange with Dena Cohen:
    (By the way, if anyone wants to hear the part of the song in question, it's in the preview on Eichler's' website.)
    ---------------------
    Me:

    Over at the Yeshiva World News' Coffee Room, we're wondering what the lyrics are at the beginning of the second verse of "Avinu," track 5 on "Pulling Strings" by the London Girls Choir.
    They sound like "Exterminate / Our men in flu" but that doesn't seem right :)
    Perhaps you can enlighten us?

    (Link: http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/shwekey-lyrics-english/page/4#post-539598)

    >>>>
    Her:

    Hello Random Person[note: the "name" on my anonymous e-mail account],

    No, we’re not davening for ‘our men’ to be exterminated...! It’s FAMINE!
    I based the lyrics on English translation of the first few Ovinu Malkeinus.
    And nice to know my work is being discussed / appreciated...

    >>>>
    Attached was a Word document with the full lyrics to the song,
    with the line in question highlighted (I've italicized it):

    OVINU MALKEINU
    by Dena Cohen

    Time to step - back And to review
    The sins we’ve - sinned More than a few
    We have no king - No king but You
    Our Father, our King

    For Your name’s sake - Bless us anew
    All harsh decrees - Accusers too
    Please nullify - And please subdue
    Our Father, our King

    CHORUS

    You give so much - You always give
    Each single day - That we do live
    And yet we sin - Stumble and fall
    We deserve nothing - Nothing at all
    But still we pray - We beg of You
    Act towards us - To every Jew
    With mercy and - With kindness too
    Our Father, our King

    The evilness - Our haters spew
    The plots and schemes - That they persue
    All of their plans - Don’t let them do
    Our Father, our King

    Exterminate - Famine and flu
    Captivity - Destruction too
    Withold the plague - From every Jew
    Our Father, our King

    CHORUS

    Forgive our sins - That did accrue
    Wipe them away - The records too
    Repentently - Bring us to You
    Our Father, our King

    CHORUS

    My friend always wondered why in "Someday" MBD says that "our stars and our moons will disappear."
    I always wondered about the song on Simchas Torah- "anu anu anu abergadikadishubirichi".

    btw now you mention stars I remember when I was little I really thought the words to the American anthem were: "What so proud we need hair" and "And the rockets ran away" (no idea how I heard that one)

    "Exterminate - Famine and flu
    Captivity - Destruction too"

    In a list with famine, captivity, and destruction,
    doesn't flu look out a little of place? :)
    There's a term for that: "Arson, murder, and jaywalking."

    Why did you think I was "a he"?

    Randomex is NOT a she. I'll believe that as much as I'd believe that cozimjewish is a he! His brain is way too technical and he talks with male language. CIJ probably thought Randomex is a she cuz he said he emailed Dena Cohen (something to do with that).

    "His brain is way too technical"
    You have obviously never met my friend she's a living computer crossed with a robot

    "he talks with male language."
    Now that one I can't argue with :D

    "I'll believe that as much as I'd believe that cozimjewish is a he!"
    Maybe I'm a "he" in disguise.....naaaah forget it even I wouldn't fall for that

    Congratulations Randomex you have succeeded in thoroughly confusing me

    i think hes a he.
    i dont want to start a kol isha debate,but i believe some ppl hold of different hittarim for boys/men to listen to girl/woman singing. if its recorded, if ones never seen the person singing etc.

    And some people just can't help themselves, R"L

    Emerald Sword in one hand, Occam's Razor in the other.

    Just to clear my name of any alleged misconduct:

    I sent an e-mail to Dena Cohen. This alone meant nothing. However, if you examine the text of the e-mail, I wrote a different mishearing of the lyrics than Cozimjewish did. This seems to imply that I listened to the song in question, which according to most opinions would not be permissible if I was male. But does it? Consider this scenario (assuming I'm male):

    Wanting to make it clear that the e-mail did not come from Cozimjewish, and not yet intending to post the e-mails, I ask my sister (>see here<), or some other person whose existence is not testified to by any CR posts, to listen to the song (which turns out to be previewable) and see what they think it says. I then use their impression for the e-mail.

    Now, I am not saying that that is what actually happened - I am just pointing out that I would not have had to listen to the song myself to send the e-mail that I did. It cannot be used as evidence that I hold of heteirim for kol isha or "can't help [myself], R"L."

    Randomex, I love your purity and yashrus. Such a real person. They don't make too many like that these days. Kol hakavod!

    Btw, feel free to stop being ambiguous about your gender- you really are not going to blow your cover if you admit to being a male. Seriously. I mean, do whatever floats your boat but...
