    FANTASTIC, Ubiquitin! Have a fantastic Shabbos. 😀

    #1148428

    (I’m stranded you-might-know-where by rain, so…)

    Ah Shabbos tish mit gefilte fish,

    Uhn ah bissel chrein ahn de side,

    Some cholent in de pot uhn ah kugel nice and hot,

    Oh! makes me warm insi-i-i-de

    Ven di chuleptches uhn k’neidlach drei’n zich in boich vi dreidlach

    Uhn di tzimmes uhn di chicken mach di haltz a bissel triken

    Ken men trinken ah l’chaim biz di kup is in shomayim

    Oh Bubby, that’s what I like!

    (When the stuffed cabbage and matzah balls are spinning in the belly like dreidels, and the tzimmes [not sure – cooked carrots?]

    and the chicken make the throat a little dry, you can drink a l’chaim until the head is in the sky. [It loses something 🙂 … ])

    …zug mir (?), vi macht di zeideh

    (Tell me, how’s the Zeide doing?)

    No? Yeah. Yeah? No!

    Takeh, er hut fahrloiren di tzein?

    (Really, he lost his [false] teeth?)

    Oy, ah bruch!

    Uhn kim nisht shpeit?

    (And don’t come late?)

    Oy, Bubby, du trachtst as mein fazhlabite car kenst

    azoi schnell dreiven azoi veit vi south Fallsburg? [Not exact]

    Oy, Bubby, do you think my [junky/decrepit?] car

    can drive as far as South Fallsburg that quickly?

    #1148429

    By the way, who can tell me what’s unique about

    “The Big K’nocker” out of all of his songs?

    Comlink: Seems great! Don’t remember when I last heard this song but if you’re looking for the word (hope I’m spelling it right) ???????????? (as in car here) it means rusty.

    And tzimmes is cooked SWEET carrots.

    Great job overall, but if you’re really bored you can brush up on your Yiddish grammar…

    heshy walfish?

    #1148432

    Mammele – Yes, that’s the word.

    Skripka – No.

    I forgot to mention that I don’t know how to translate “bruch.”

    (Also, I think there are two “No? Yeah.”s before the “Yeah? No!”)

    why not? which other song does he sing?

    #1148434

    Oh, I see what you mean now. That wasn’t what I meant,

    although it might be true.

    #1148435

    The song’s title character is named after the original artist.
