lyrics

YIDDISH / POLISH / ENGLISH


// Tojbn (Yiddish - in Polish transcription)

Tojbn sztejen baj majn fencter,
wajse tojbn cwej,
efenen wel ich zej dem fencter
efenen far zej.

In majn sztiln ejnzam’ cimer
worken weln zej,
worken weln in majn cimer
wajse tojbn cwej.

In der nacht fun szwern umet
worken weln zej,
in der nacht fun szwarcn umet,
wajse tojbn cwej.

// Gołąbki

Gołąbki siedzą na mym oknie,
białe gołąbki dwie.
Otworzę im moje okno,
dla nich otworzę je.

W mojej cichej, samotnej izbie
będą gruchać sobie.
Gruchać będą w mojej izbie
białe gołąbki dwie.

A i w noc bezmierną smutku
będą gruchać sobie.
W ciemną noc smolistą smutku,
białe gołąbki dwie.

// Doves

Doves are sitting by my window,
two white-feathered doves.
I will open up my window,
open it for both.

They will fly into my room -
so quiet and so lone.
In my room they'll softly coo,
the two white-feathered doves.

On a night of heavy sadness
they will coo a song.
On a night of pitch-black sadness,
two white-feathered doves.
