Yiddish Lyrics
S’iz shabes do, oy s’iz gut
Dayn kol klingt mole-kheyn
Kidesh makhste vunderlekh
Un dayn ponim, likhtik sheyn
Nu, ketsl, nokh a glezl
Mashke, vayn, tsi bir
Ober loz oys di [ha]moytsi
Kum tsu mir
Loz oys di [ha]moytsi, kum tsu mir
Ikh hob zikh, haynt getoyvlt
In der mikve nor far dir
Me ruft dikh a min tsadik
Oyneg-shabes on a shir
Ketsl loz oys di [ha]moytsi, kum tsu mir
[Instrumental break] Loz oys di [ha]moytsi, kum tsu mir
Ikh hob zikh, ayngetunken
In der mikve nor far dir
Me ruft dikh a min tsadik
Oyneg-shabes on a shir
Ketsl, loz oys di hamoytsi kum tsu mir
