    Why don’t you type the Hebrew words with English letters?

    Try this, it’s the letters in alphabetical order with nekudos and even the Yiddish vowels on the bottom:

    Does anyone know the lyrics 4th days yiddish Country and Avraham?

    Yiddish Country:

    A pile of bills, old cheap thrills

    Working late night at the old stone mill

    These cars and lies, French and fries

    What do you see if you close your eyes?

    New boots on the floor, sign on the door

    You got your gold neck ties, sweet pumpkin pies

    What do you see on rodeo drive?

    I can hear the sages say

    Make it happen all today

    A little bit is still okay

    (Chorus:)

    Di vos villen heren, heren

    Di vos villen zen, zen

    Di vos kenen kenen, kenen

    Men darf nor vissen ver un ven

    Avraham:

    But you opened your doors to tired men, to lonely passersby and angels from heaven

    Your kindness and your care were known far and wide, father of a nation your soul is alive.

    (Chorus:)

    Avraham are we the children that you dreamed of?

    Are we the shining stars you saw at night?

    You know its true, we still call you avinu

    A child was born just the other day, and all those gathered there heard his mother say

    (Chorus:)

    Your courage and your might, kept the pharaohs up at night

    No hand could hold you, no stranger would forget you.

    therealmgama, do the ones from Yumi Lowy and Abish Brodt have the same words? I just remember a bit of the Abish Brodt version, and I don’t see the words on your post. It’s been years since I heard it, so I might be wrong, but I thought at the high part, he started with verse with “Heilige Bashefer”.

    feif un – everyone who sings it changes a little, yumi lowy says techina instead of tefila ?????? ????, ????? ???? ?????? ????

  • #1155168

    Feif Un – IIRC the lyrics were written by R’ Yonosan Schwartz. He had R’ Abish Brodt record it and released it for a simcha. He then tweeked the words a little and rerecorded for the official tape.

    Most notably he changed the words from ???? ??? ???? ???? ??????? to ??? ???? ???? ???? ???????

    Mazel Tov, Newsreader!

    you want to know how I have the lyrics? Simple! I have the tape and the “jacket” that came with it! (I happen to be a big fan of Yonasan Schwartz’s songs)

    Shalom Chaver – i always knew there were slightly different versions out there, and it’s interesting to hear how they came about. But I don’t see how ??? ???? ???? makes any sense!

    and newsreader – i’m a bit confused! are you chassidish or not? cuz this is a very chassidishe song, (some lines won’t rhyme if you sing them the litvishe way) but chassidim usually don’t sing songs under the chuppah!

  • #1155171

    I haven’t heard the song in a while, but I do remember hearing the reason for the change. ?? ???? ??? ???? reflects ???”?, while the ??? ???? ???? is ??? ?????. It is more appropriate to say ?? ??? ???? ???? ???? ???????.

    Shalom Chaver, thanks for the clarification. I actually realized this myself as I was saying these words by slichos. It is written as ??? ???? ???? and does make more sense that way. Now I don’t understand why he would’ve switched the order originally….

    Newsreader, I just looked at the “jacket” of the tape again and there’s one correction: He says ????? ?????’? instead of ?????.

    By the way, you probably know this but wherever I wrote ?? ??? or ?? ????, he really says ?’??? or ?’????.

    I found this, with translation included.

    Geroshin in himmel, ess tit’zich a timmel, maluchim mit kin’eh,

    zai villen farshtain vi azoi flaish un bain hut dergracht azah bechina,

    zai freigen baim Boreh, “Vi ken den dus zain,

    az Udom der mentch hut ba dir azoi chain,

    vus far a z’chisim, far azeliche nissim, zug inz alain!”

    A great commotion rocks the heavens: the angels are jealous.

    They want to understand how people of flesh and bones merited such a revelation.

    They ask Hashem: “How could it be, that Odom, Man, is so favored by You? What sort of z’chusim could they possibly have to be worthy of such miracles? Please tell us!”

    Kimtz un zeitzt alain di shvuchim fin main leeben kind,

    Tinoikis shel beis rabban, hailig, lechtig, un a zind,

    un kiktz! a yidde’le dort loift,

    noch a mitzve’le er koift

    Yehai sh’mai rabu, hertz vi shain, zai shrai’en nuch “Umain!”

    Hashem addresses the angels:

    Come see for yourselves the “shvachim” – praises – of My beloved child;

    young schoolchildren, holy, radiant, pure of all sin;

    and look! There a small Jew is running to grab one more little mitzva;

    “Yehei shmei rabba,” listen how beautiful it’s said, and how they all call “Amen!” after him.

    Doiros, shaine oiros, zai balachten duch main velt,

    Simche, k’dishe mit tahara; dus vos mir gefelt,

    Ani ma’amin mit a bren zingt men of kiddish hashem

    der hester punim azoi grois, vi halten zai dus ois!?

    Generations, beautiful flames that light up My world,

    Joy and holiness in purity for my pleasure,

    “Ani Ma’amin” with a burning commitment they sing to Me, al kiddush Hashem;

    the “Hester Ponim” – concealment – is grajongous! How can they bear it!?

    Main kind, oy, s’iz shver, s’falt dir a trer,

    mach oif deine oigilech un zeh,

    cho’dich lib un a mus, un a shiur, un a tzuhl,

    Vail di bist duch mein kind, mein leeber fulk Yisrul,

    Hashem – presumably reminding Himself of how much we really rock – addresses the Jewish People:

    My child, oy, it’s tough, I can see your tears.

    Lift up your eyes so you’ll see:

    I love you without cause, without bounds, without measure,

    because you are my child, my beloved nation, Yisroel.

    Kim neinter tzu mir, s’iz ofen mein tir,

    ich vais vi dain hartz, oy, ess benkt,

    shoin tozenter yur, och ba mir benkt zich gur

    achoisi rayosi, Main aibiker pur.

    Come closer to Me, My door is open!

    I know how much your heart yearns.

    It’s been thousands of years and I’m yearning too

    “Achosi rayosi,” My eternal companion.

    Yidden, dai’os fil, farshiden, yeder zain derher,

    in ainem dinen zai mich, ach, a shainer militerr,

    di maluchim zitzt b’rina, genig shoin tzar hashechina,

    ess iz gekimmen yetzt di tzeit, moshiach iz shoin grait!!

    Jews are full of opinions; each one has a unique way of understanding Me; they all serve me, ach what a beautiful army!

    While the angels sit comfortably, the time has come for the Shechina to stop suffering;

    Yes, it’s come, now is the time, Moshiach is ready to arrive!

    [Chorus] Main kind…

    Geroshin in himmel, ess tit’zich a timmel, Maluchim zingen shira,

    zai takke farshtain vi flaish un bain hut dergracht durch zain bechira

    Zai hitten der Torah, rain, un a zind,

    azah hailig fulk, mir zenen nispu’el “Mi k’Amcha Yisru’el!”

    A great commotion rocks the heavens: the angels are singing Shira.

    They Takke understand how people of flesh and bones merited to be chosen by Him!

    “The Creator is right! They served Him faithfully, they keep the Torah properly, purely, without sin.

    What a holy nation; we are in awe of them! ‘Who is like your nation, Yisroel

    This isn’t totally related to this topic but since my question has to do with music I decided to write here.

    Anyone know where I can find the ani maamin that the tzaddikim (all jews during that time)sang by the Holocaust? It’s a song that gives me incredible strength and I want to start humming it to myself again…

    Happiest,

    The one you’re referring to, I believe, is the last track on Avraham Fried’s first album, “No Jew Will Be Left Behind”. It’s also the final track on Mona Rosenblum’s “Di Groissa Chasunah”. MBD sang it as part of the “Emunah and Bitochon” medley in “Once Upon a Nigun”, and for a simple but stunningly beautiful instrumental version, the final track on Andy Statman and David Grisman’s “New Shabbos Waltz” is a must listen.

    Moshe Laufer also performed it instrumentally on “Mitoch Haneshamah” (track 7) as part of an Ani Ma’min medley, and that’s also very nice.

    happiest, if it’s the one I’m thinking of, you can find it on the Modzitz website – modzitz.org Click the link on top for the music. It says the following story about it:

    Although he was centered in Otvoczk, Rebbe Shaul Yedidya Elazar of Modzitz had Chassidim throughout the major towns and cities of Poland. One of these was Reb Azriel David Fastag, who became noted for his exceptional voice throughout Warsaw. Many came to the shul where Reb Azriel David and his brothers, who were also blessed with lovely voices, would daven on the Yamim Noraim [High Holy Days]. Reb Azriel David was the ba’al tefilla [led the prayers], while his brothers accompanied him as a choir. His crisp, clear and moving voice had a profound effect on all who heard him.

    He lived simply, supporting himself from a small dry goods [clothing] store, but his happiness and fulfillment came of another source – the world of Negina. His moving tunes made their way to Otvoczk, where his Rebbe, R. Shaul Yedidya Elazar appreciated them immensely. The day a new niggun of R. Azriel David’s came to the Rebbe was like a “Yom Tov” for him. [One of his most memorable compositions is “M’heira Yishama,” a wedding tune.]

    Dark clouds began to cover the skies of Europe – the clouds of Nazism. In spite of the terrible decrees, the yellow patch and the ghettoes, most Jews could not fathom what was about to befall them. Only a few “read the map” correctly and managed to escape the clutches of the Nazi occupation to safe havens. One of them was the Modzitzer Rebbe, Rebbe Shaul Yedidya Elazar, whose Chassidim made a tremendous effort to save him. As the Nazis entered Poland, the Chassidim smuggled him out of Poland to Vilna [Lithuania], and from there he made his way across Russia to Shanghai, China, eventually arriving in America in 1941.

    Meanwhile in Poland, tens of thousands of Jews were being ‘shipped off’ daily to their death in cattle cars that were part of the railway system. Aroused from their warm beds in Warsaw, husbands were separated from their wives, children from their parents. The elderly were often shot on the spot in front of their loved ones. Then the Jews were gathered and sent off in these trains to a place where their existence would no longer trouble those dregs of humanity known as the Nazis – to Auschwitz, Treblinka, Majdanek, etc. What did it look like in one of those cattle cars of the “death train”?

    What could one expect to find other than people in their death throes – gasping, sighing and crying? One could hear the stifled cries of children, crushed together and trampled upon by the spiked boots of the evil, cruel Nazis.

    However, in one such car, it seemed like a “tone” of life managed to emerge from these crushed people. What – people on their way to the slaughter, singing??? Is this not some cruel Nazi joke? Let us look a bit closer…

    An elderly Jew, wrapped up in his ragged clothing, his face white as snow, makes his way over to his neighbor on the death train, begging him to remind him of the niggun the Modzitzer Rebbe sang on Yom Kippur for the Avoda, to “Ma’areh Kohen.”

    “Now – now – all you want to know about is niggunim?” answered the other, with a hard look at the Chassid, thinking that maybe all the suffering had caused him to lose his mind.

    But this Modzitzer Chassid, Reb Azriel David Fastag, was no longer paying attention to his friend, or to anyone else on the train. In his mind, he was at the Amud HaTefilla [prayer stand] next to the Modzitzer Rebbe, and it is he who was the baal tefilla before all the Chassidim.

    Suddenly, before his eyes, the words of the twelfth [of thirteen] Principle of Jewish Faith appeared: “Ani Ma’amin b’Emuna Sheleima, b’vias HaMoshiach; v’af al pi she’yismamaya, im kol zeh, achakeh lo b’chol yom she’yavo – I believe with perfect faith in the coming of the Moshiach; and even though he may tarry, nevertheless, I wait each day for his coming.” Closing his eyes, he meditated on these words and thought, “Just now, when everything seems lost, is a Jew’s faith put to the test.”

    It was not long before he began to hum a quiet tune to these words. Amidst the heavy atmosphere of death and despair on the train, Reb Azriel David’s dveykus [attachment to Hashem] took him above it all.

    “How can one of us be singing at such a time?” wondered his fellow Jews on the train. And with such a sweet voice! It must be, that from Heaven they are accompanying us, in mourning, to our death… But listen, what is it that they are singing? You’re about to be slaughtered, shot, poisoned or burnt and what are they singing? — I believe!!!”

    The Modzitzer Chassid was completely above it all, a pillar of song, bringing out of his bloodied lungs the song of his life — the song of the eternity of the Jewish People. He was unaware of the silence in the cattle car, and of the hundreds of ears listening attentively in amazement. He also didn’t hear the voices as they gradually joined his song, at first quietly, but soon – growing louder and louder! Meanwhile, he made sure to write out the notes of the newly composed song…

    The moving tune, with its holy words, had penetrated the hearts of the Jews on the train, and had joined to the pure emuna [faith] in their hearts, which burst out from them in the form of this great song. The song spread from car to car. Every mouth that could draw a breath from those congested cattle cars, filled with live “corpses” and pungent with the odor of people crowded together, joined in a piece of “Ani Ma’amin – I believe.” It became a wonderful, amazing symphony unto itself.

    An elderly Jew, close to his death, asked for an explanation. His neighbor screamed to him, “We’re singing the Jewish People lives – chai – lives! You too, sing with us – the Jewish People lives, Ani Ma’amin!” Closing his eyes, the elderly Jew clenched his fists and sang with his remaining strength – “the Jewish People is alive, I believe that Moshiach Tzidkeinu [the Righteous] will come quickly,” and expired.

    As the train neared the death camp, the railway workers wondered: from where is this amazing song coming? Could the Jews be singing their own burial service tune?

    As if waking from a dream, Reb Azriel David opened his eyes to the sight of the singing train. His eyes were red from crying; his cheeks, wet with tears. Deeply moved, he yelled to whomever would listen, “My dear brothers! This niggun is the song of the Jewish soul. It is a song of pure faith, for which thousands of years of exile and troubles cannot overcome!”

    Then, in a choked voice, he continued, “I will give my portion in Olam Haba [the World to Come] to whomever can take these notes of my song ‘Ani Ma’amin’ to the Modzitzer Rebbe!”

    A hushed silence descended upon the train. Reb Azriel David lifted himself up by the ends of his thumbs, searching through the crowd that surrounded him. Two young men appeared, promising to bring the notes to the Modzitzer Rebbe, at any cost. One of them climbed upon the other, and in the small crack of the train’s roof that only he knew of, made a hole from which to escape. Poking his head out under the open sky, he said, “I see the blue Heavens above us, the stars are twinkling and the moon, with a fatherly face, is looking at me.”

    “And what do you hear?” asked his companion.

    Turning white, the young man answered, “I hear the Ministering Angels singing the Ani Ma’amin tune, and it’s ascending to the seven firmaments of Heaven…”

    Bidding farewell to their brothers and sisters on the train, the two proceeded to jump off, one after the other. One was killed instantly from the fall, while the other survived, taking the notes of the song with him. He eventually found his way to Eretz Yisrael [perhaps to the Rebbe’s son, the Imrei Aish, who was in Tel-Aviv], and the notes were sent by mail to Rebbe Shaul Yedidya Elazar in New York.

    Upon receiving the notes and having the “Ani Ma’amin” niggun sung, the Rebbe said, “When they sang ‘Ani Ma’amin’ on the death train, the pillars of the world were shaking. Hashem said, ‘Can it be that My Torah is a fraud? No! But whenever the Jews will sing ‘Ani Ma’amin’, I will remember the six million victims and have mercy on the rest of My People.'”

    It is told that on the first Yom Kippur that the Rebbe sang the “Ani Ma’amin,” there were thousands of Jews in the shul. The entire Kahal [congregation] burst into tears, which fell like water into the pool of tears and blood of the Jewish Nation. The tune soon spread throughout Klal Yisrael [world Jewry].

    “With this niggun,” said Rebbe Shaul Yedidya Elazar, “the Jewish People went to the gas chambers. And with this niggun, the Jews will march to greet Moshiach.”

    happiest, I think this is what you are looking for:

    On MBD‘s “Once Upon A Niggun” album, song #4 is called “Emunah & Bituchon Medley”. It starts out with eerie music and the sound of a train rumbling down the tracks. And then comes MBD singing “Ani Ma’aminim, Ani Ma’aminim, Ani Ma’aminim…” He is then joined by an adult choir and child. The song then moves on to “Vhaya Bayom Hahu”. And then comes “Mimkomcha Malkeinu”. After Mimkomcha, they return to “Ani Ma’aminim”. The song ends with a child calling out Ani Ma’aminim and the train. VERY heart wrenching song!

    Here is the album on MostlyMusic.com:

    http://www.mostlymusic.com/once-upon-a-niggun.html

    Prices for this album are as follows:

    $10.00 – Download

    $14.99 – CD

    $9.49 – Cassette

    $1.50 – One Song Download

    I’m looking for a song called “Paroh B’mitztrayim” I think its by Avraham Fried but I checked every single one of his CD’s online and none of them have this song on it.

    Does anyone know what song I’m talking about and which CD/Cassette it would be on?

    You know what I don’t even know if the name of the song is paroh b’mitzrayim – but its this beautiful tune and starts with “paroh b’mitzrayim va ziknei – be shiagam ….” lol i don’t know the words properly but its STUNNING and I need to find it 🙂

    On MBD Let My People Go, There’s a song called Golus Mitzrayim which begins, “By Paro in Mitzrayim”. It’s a gorgeous song; maybe that’s the one you mean. He also sang it at one of the earlier HASC concerts.

    I googled lyrics to Light up the nights miami boys choir and found this.

    The scene was set back when,

    A group of fearless men

    Stood up for their beliefs

    and risked their lives.

    They acted with one voice,

    and firmly made a choice,

    this nation be ensured,

    That it survive.

    Their prayers were answered each day,

    Their minds fixed on their destination,

    With victory they made their way,

    No longer deprived,

    At last they arrived,

    To a miracle lasting for all generations!

    1, 2, 3, Fo-ur, 5, 6, 7, 8!

    CHORUS:

    Light up the nights!

    The candles burning bright,

    On the festival of lights,

    here on Chanukah

    Our nation as a whole,

    Can reach a common goal

    With the fire in our souls,

    the light of Chanukah!

    2nd time – Chorus

    We answer to one name,

    Our Heritage the same,

    The power of the flame,

    The light of Chanukah

    We face a daunting task,

    One that we cannot mask,

    A danger just as real as it was then.

    lets stand with open eyes,

    To hear our brothers cries

    And courage now is needed once again

    Let’s carry our banner with pride,

    For this freedom how long we have waited.

    With the words of the torah our guide,

    If we stand as one, It can be undone,

    Just think of the wonders that can be created!

    Does anybody know the lyrics for MBDs Ivrit “Shir Hashalom” (greatest hits 2 song 5; 25 Years of music song 6)?

    I also need the lyrics for Avraham Frieds Ivrit Aleh Katan Sheli (Single; Live In Israel song 7; The 30 Hits Collection Song 01)

    And does anybody have the lyrics for “Shema Yisrael” – an Ivrit song (I don’t know who sings the original song; Shloime Daskal sings it on Dance with Shloime Daskal Song 21)

    All help appreciated!

    If the Shema Yisrael is the one I’m thinking of, here are the original words, as sung by Sarit Hadad:

    Kshehalev boche rak Elokim shomea

    Bitfila ktana chotech et hadmama

    Shma israel Elokai ata hakol yachol

    Natata li et chayai natata li hakol

    Shma Israel Elokai achshav ani levad

    Chazek oti Elokai ase shelo efchad

    Kshehalev boche hazman omed milechet

    El halo noda hu lo rotze lalechet

    and here’s the translation:

    When the heart cries only God hears

    The pain rises from the soul

    A man falls down before he sinks

    He cuts the silence with a small prayer

    Shma Israel, my God, you are the mighty one

    You gave me my life you gave me everything

    A tear in my eyes, the heart cries in silence

    And when the heart is silent the soul cries out

    Shma Israel, my God, I am all alone now

    Make me strong, my God, so I will not be afraid

    The pain is great and there is no where to run

    When the heart cries time stands still

    A man sees his life passing in front of him

    He calls his God as he stands on the edge of the deep

    English Lyrics translated by Rabbi Eli Freidman

    Look around, far and near

    Where’s the joy, where’s the cheer

    Why the fear, why the frown

    Why the smile upside down

    Shake yourself from the dust

    Scrape your soul from the rust

    Know that this too shall pass

    For in G-d we trust

    There is hope

    If we sing our hope together

    We have faith that is stronger than the terror

    No despair, no dismay

    Everything will be okay

    He is with us night and day

    Brother dear

    Dry your tears

    Take my hand, never fear

    Let’s advance, side by side

    And let’s cast our fright aside

    Don’t forget all the love

    That we have from Above

    And you’ll see with the dawn

    All the pain will be gone

    ETA: Just realized I didn’t really help you figure the second chorus out- and I can’t even listen to it myself to figure it out :(. Sorry…

  • #1155208

    The REAL translation is: (this is MY sister’s translation-im posting it for her)

    Look, here and there

    From a circle of the world

    There are Tzaros and worries

    The smile is (i dont know what that is)????

    Dont see only black

    For this, too, will pass

    and everything will work out

    Because hashem will help

    There is hope

    we will sing all together

    there is a strong emunah from all fear

    ????????????????

    because were not alone

    we have one hashem

    Hey, my brother

    come with me

    Put your hand in mine

    dont worry dont be scared

    Because were ?????? Hand in hand

    h”bh

    love everyone

    Soon youll see tomorow

    it will end the pain

    Her hebrew isnt so well, so a few lines/words she didnt translate. But its pretty good for a year in israel, i wanted to post the translation, but she translated it better than me, and since shes not posting im doing it

    For those who appreciated Machnisei Dimah’s yiddish lyrics, I wrote a song in English (2001?) based on that song. I finally figured out how to copy and paste,so I will try….

    C. Banet Tape

    Yiddishe Kinder, do you know

    That in shomayim, tears flow

    For yiddishe tears still overflow

    And when, this glass is full, Moshiach will come.

    Six million screamed Shema Yisroel Hashem Elokeinu Hashem Echod

    Tears were shed for rivers of Yiddish blood

    How many tears soak every cheek?

    Our precious Tehillim will one day speak

    Oy, oy, oy, when / will / the geula be here at last?

    Oy Ribono Shel Olam, how deep is the glass?

    So many hearts are broken, so many tefillos spoken

    Young yesomim voices piercing the crowd

    The tzibbur listens with sadness as / they say Kaddish out loud

    Tosim dimoseinu benodcha

    Ana, rachem al amcho

    How can it be the glass is not yet full?

    [musical interlude here]

    Yiddishe Kinder, do you know

    That in shomayim, tears flow

    For yiddishe tears still overflow

    And when / this glass is full Moshiach will come.

    Tears of another kind

    Could fill the glass, each drop we find

    We plead with you Hashem, please gather them in

    Tears of a simcha

    Of mitzvos done with kavannah

    With these tears, too, perhaps the glass will brim.

    Oy, oy, Ribono Shel Olam, please / look down and see

    The tears a mother and father shed freely

    Leading a choson and kallah under the chuppah

    So many tears of friends and family

    Oy, oy, Ribono Shel Olam, please / look down with pride

    See yiddishe mothers bentching the licht each Friday night

    Whispering, Yehi Rotzon Lifnei Hashem Elokai

    The precious tears of every Aim Habonim

    Well, it would’ve been, could’ve been worse than you would ever know.

    Oh, the dashboard melted, but we still have the radio.

    Oh, it should’ve been, could’ve been worse than you would ever know.

    Well, you told me about nowhere well it sounds like someplace I’d like to go.

    Oh, it could’ve been, should’ve been worse than you would ever know.

    Well, the windshield was broken but I love the fresh air you know.

    (The dashboard melted but we still have the radio)

    Oh, it would’ve been, could’ve been worse than you would ever know, oh!

    (The dashboard melted but we still have the radio)

    Oh, we talked about nothing which was more than I wanted you to know-oh-oh-oh-oh.

    Now here we go!

    Oh! It would’ve been, could’ve been worse than it had even gone

    Well, the car was on blocks, but I was already where I want.

    (It was impossible, we ran it good, we ran it good)

    Why should we ever even ever really even get to know?

    (It was impossible, we ran it good, we ran it good)

    Oh if the world don’t like us it’ll shake us just like we were a co-oh-oh-oh-old.

    Now here we go!

    Well we scheme and we scheme but we always blow it

    We’ve yet to crash, but we still might as well tow it

    Standing at a light switch to each east and west horizon,

    Every dawn you’re surprising,

    and in the evening one’s consoling

    Saying “See it wasn’t quite as bad as”

    Well, it would’ve been, could’ve been worse than you would ever know.

    I was patiently erasing and recording the wrong episodes

    After you had proved my point wrong,

    It wasn’t like I’d let it go, oh-oh-oh. Oh-oh-oh.

    I just wanted to catch the last laugh of this show.

    Yeah, it would’ve been, could’ve been worse than you would ever know.

    Oh, the dashboard melted, but we still have the radio.

    (The dashboard melted, but we ran it good, we ran it good)

    Hard-wired to conceive, so much we’d have to stow it

    Even needs have needs, tiny giants made of tinier giants.

    Don’t wear eyelids so I don’t miss the last laugh of this show.

    (The dashboard melted but we still have the radio)

    Oh, we could’ve been, should’ve been worse than you would ever know.

    (The dashboard melted but we still have the radio)

    Well, you told me about nowhere well it sounds like someplace I’d like to go-oh-oh-oh-oh.

    Now here we go!

    Well we scheme and we scheme but we always blow it

    We’ve yet to crash, but we still might as well tow it

    Standing at a light switch to each east and west horizon,

    Every dawn you’re surprising,

    and in the evening one’s consoling

    Saying “See it wasn’t quite as bad as”

    The Chevrah, I’m a Jew

    “It’s insane the parade of daily living. It’s not easy, a many can get confused. With the mad demands of constant giving, we feel hopeless just like we are being used. When your day to day life

    is a hectic scramble, going crazy, I don’t know what to do. Turn your family around the Shabbos table, singing zemiros, it’s great to be a Jew.

    So come and sing with me and dance a little.

    I’ll play my guitar and you’ll play the fiddle.

    And we’ll thank Hashem who made us a yiddle, shout it out

    Ani Yehudi.

    Just come and sing we me a song to shamayim, I’ll play my guitar, you’ll clap your yedayim, then we’ll praise Hashem and make a L’chaim, sing it loud, I am so proud, I’m a Jew.

    In the course of life a man gets lonely. something is missing, a man can get depressed.

    It’s time to turn to the One and Only.

    He’ll help you realize that you are truly blessed.

    Lend a helping hand to a needy neighbor.

    Invite a stranger as a yom tov guest. Be a friend to the widow and the orphan. Remember always that life is but a test.

    So come and sing with me and dance a little.

    I’ll play my guitar and you’ll play the fiddle. And we’ll thank Hashem who made us a yiddle, shout it out Ani Yehudi.

    Just come and sing we me a song to shamayim, I’ll play my guitar, you’ll clap your yedayim, then we’ll praise Hashem and make a L’chaim, sing it loud, I am so proud, I’m a Jew.

    Every day a yid should say, “Hey I’m a lucky man. I

    was chosen by Hashem to be the best I can.” Then you will find true peace of mind start to sing again.

    So come and sing with me and dance a little. I’ll play my guitar and you’ll play the fiddle. And we’ll thank Hashem who made us a yiddle, shout it out Ani Yehudi. Just come and sing we me a song to shamayim, I’ll play my guitar, you’ll clap your yedayim, then we’ll praise Hashem and make a L’chaim, sing it loud, I am so proud, I’m a Jew.”

    and Malky needs to make it to a restroom quick

    Yitz dropped his ice cream

    and Rivky needs a tissue and shaindy’s in the back seat sick

    Up the Palisades right onto the quickway

    Monticello forty miles ahead

    i said if you kids don’t behave we’re not going to the country and this is what my biggest kid said

    I Pulled up to the bungalow

    I was shaking like a nervous wreck

    my wife came out and said

    How was the trip dear,

    I said es iz geven a shrek

    she asked what happened

    i said 1 2 3

    Chorus:

    Moshe Chaim lost his kippah

    Asher Zelig Spilled his drink

    and Malky didn’t make it to the restroom quick

    Yitz dropped his Ice Cream

    and Rivky used her shirt sleeve

    Scratch that, it’s Yehuda! and it’s called Perek Shira.

    Take a look around you

    A symphony of sound

    Creation in its rhythm

    The melody astounds

    Each creature plays its part

    Music from their hearts

    Shining stars up in the heavens

    Waves upon the seas

    Roaring lions in the jungle

    Fruit blossoms in the trees

    The wilderness, the desert sand

    An eagle in its flight

    They rhapsodize Perek Shira

    CHORUS

    Generations of song

    Sing loud sing strong

    Each one feels the same

    As they call out His name

    Thank You Hashem as I sing You my song

    Chasdei Hashem Leolam Ashira

    To orchestrate each word

    We raise our voice in song

    Ailecha Hashem Nafshi Ekra

    Now with deep anticipation

    We await that final day

    When all of us will come together

    Vesham Nashir Shir Chadash

    Singing the same song

    Shiru Lanu Mi-Shir Tziyon

    CHORUS

    Generations of song

    Sing loud sing strong

    I know this is so vague, but I heard a song the other week and some lines have been playing though my head since then. I’ve never heard of the song before, and I have no idea who sings it.

    Some of the random lyrics I remember are- and I can’t guarantee I got the words right:

    The captain of the little ship has to guide it faithfully…

    Carried by the waves that has become my history…

    Are we living if we can’t change…

    There’s gotta be a better way…

    Anyone know what I’m talking about? Who sings it? Where I can buy it from? Know any more of the lyrics? It’s been driving me nuts!!!

    streekgeek- The song is called “Change” on Ari Goldwag’s new CD, Am Echad. (It has a couple of really nice songs.) Here are the Lyrics.

    Am I that predictable, is this all I’ll ever be

    The words I say, the things I feel, all seem to define me

    But aren’t we just reading from a script, we, ourselves wrote

    From there we seem to quote, it’s true

    When I am acting as myself, and playing out my role

    The one thing I must recognize is a lack of depth and soul

    Why doesn’t that bird ask itself, ‘Why should I build this nest’

    Before it builds the rest, it’s true

    Chorus:

    And through the ocean mist I can discern who I will be

    Carried by the waves of what’s become my history

    And are we really living if we can’t change

    If we are merely products of ourselves

    There’s got to be a better way

    The strongest winds are on the sea of tranquility

    The captain of the little ship tries to guide her faithfully

    The choices that he makes can’t be the choices he’d just make

    But the choices he must make, it’s true

    The winds all seem much stronger as I sense this truth inside

    But there’s a little secret that can calm this bumpy ride

    The paradox is that the more I start to accept

    The higher I’ll connect, it’s true

    Chorus

    We can find the strength inside to chart a brand new course

    We can find the bravery to weather all the storms

    No matter what we’re feeling, we can change

    We can make something of ourselves

    Deep inside, we can find a better way

    Anticipation as we make our way

    To the hall on this special day

    The excitement, we’re feeling in the air,

    The special moment’s drawing near.

    And we are hoping

    Our friends and family

    Will be coming for us to see,

    Yes, the mitzvah

    Of bringing joy is great,

    Let’s be on time and not be late.

    Chorus:

    We will dance to the music as we show our hearts as one,

    We will sing with emotion, life and joy and fun,

    Join and clap to the beat and feel the rhythm

    Oh, so strong,

    Capture the meaning of the simcha song.

    And we have waited for this to come at last,

    Can’t imagine how much time has past,

    It’s so clear now, a mitzvah reverie,

    This simcha’s truly meant to be.

    Keitzad merakdim, lifnei hakallah,

    Kallah no’eh bachasuda,

    Asher bara sasson ve’simcha

    Oid yishama v’yarei yehuda….

    Chorus:

    Kay im not 100% sure but i think thats basically it 🙂

    Anyone know the lyrics to the end of the song “I am a mountain so very high! I can reach way up to the sky! The torah should be given on me! Cuz i am as tall as can be! You see!”

    “I am a mountain, so very high, I can reach way up to the sky, the Torah should be given on me, ’cause I am as tall as can be, you see.”

    “Oh, no! –

    I am much taller than you, and there are so many things I can do, the Torah should be given on me, ’cause I am as great as can be.”

    The little Har Sinai just stood there and sighed, “I know I’m not tall, I know I’m not wide, the Torah can’t be given on me, ’cause I’m a plain mountain”, he said, simply.

    From all the mountains, Hashem chose Sinai, because he did not hold himself high, he had such simple and humble ways, and from this we learn that humbleness pays.

    Neither. I believe it’s from I Hear a Mitzvah, the second Mitzvah Tree record.

    Some people say the world has gone mad, evil has stolen the day.

    There is so much we can do to make this world a kinder, better, happier place.

    Anyone know what song this is and where I can find it (album)?

    Just found this:

    After “sitting around” for a while, a song about 9/11 composed by music superstar Avraham Fried has been released.

    By COLlive reporter

    Jewish music superstar Avraham Fried has commemorated the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks with releasing a preview of a new song in solidarity to the families of the victims.

    The song, which Fried composed, was originally meant to be included in his latest album, but plans fell through and instead it was presented at a recent HASC concert and was arranged by Yisroel Lamm.

    “I felt it was important to write something positive,” Fried told COLlive.com. “If 19 people can create so much negativity, imagine what we all can do to change the world for the better.”

    He said the song has been “sitting around” for a while, and he plans to rerecord it for an upcoming English-Yiddish album.

    “After tragic events the Lubavitcher Rebbe always encouraged Jewish people to look for that glimmer of light and hope and make the correct conclusion,” Fried told music site Shlager.net which posted the recording this week.

    “That is what the song is actually about. One day in September changed our lives. It was no doubt a day of blinding darkness, however, we have the power to dispel it. It is in our hands,” Fried said.

    LYRICS:

    Some people say the world has gone mad

    Evil has stolen the day

    Some people say ‘Just throw in the towel’

    I don’t feel that way

    ‘Cuz every good deed that you do

    And every kind word that you say, has a way,

    has a way to change the world

    Chorus:

    There is so much we can do to make this world,

    A kinder better happier place

    There is so much we can do to change the world

    Let’s change the world today

    That day in September changed our lives

    The darkest day by far

    Oh, they broke our heart but woke up our soul

    We’ll show them who we are

    ‘Cuz we are towers of light

    And we have the power to do what is right

    Let’s illuminate the night

    Chorus

    Don’t need a reason or season my friend

    You don’t need fortune or fame

    Go out of your way, make someone’s day

    Now that’s the name of the game

    ‘Cuz we are towers of light

    And we have the power to do what is right

    Let’s illuminate the night

    Chorus

    Some comments on this post say that this song is an old camp song (Camp Emunah)

    Was the song ever released on an album?

    Also, Avraham Fried sang a song about playing with fire, how your soul is a heavenly fire. Was it ever recorded for an album?

    Lyrics to Playing with Fire performed by Avraham Fried joined by Bentzi & Shmuel Marcus (8th Day) at the Young Israel of Kew Gardens Hills concert 2008

    There’s a place in your heart deep within

    known as the Kodesh HaKodoshim

    There’s an alter there

    With a heavenly fire burning

    That’s why you’re always yearning

    That’s why you’re always yearning

    This fire takes you higher if you

    let it burn

    Inspire your desire to

    live and learn

    If you ignore it

    and don’t absorb it

    brother, your playing with fire

    Your heavenly fire

    Its there to take you higher

    and higher

    and higher

    and higher

    This fire takes you higher if you

    let it burn

    Inspire your desire to

    live and learn

    If you ignore it

    and don’t absorb it

    brother, your playing with fire

    Your heavenly fire

    Its there to take you higher

    Learning Torah, lights the flame, watch it glow

    Come in out of the dark, lights the spark, watch it glow

    A Mitzvah too has the power to ignite

    Your soul down deep inside

    Your soul down deep inside

    Beneath the light, in a room, oh so dark

    Don’t look too far, know right there, in your heart

    There’s an alter there with a heavenly fire burning

    That’s why your always yearning

    That’s why your always yearning

    This fire takes you higher if you

    let it burn

    Inspire your desire to

    live and learn

    If you ignore it

    and don’t absorb it

    brother, your playing with fire

    Your heavenly fire

    Its there to take you higher

    and higher

    and higher

    and higher

    This fire takes you higher if you

    let it burn

    Inspire your desire to

    live and learn

    If you ignore it

    and don’t absorb it

    brother, your playing with fire

    Your heavenly fire

    Its there to take you higher

    There’s a place in your heart deep within

    known as the Kodesh HaKodoshim

    There’s an alter there with a heavenly fire burning

    That’s why your always yearning

    That’s why we’re all returning

    You can watch it on YouTube
