lyrics

Du host mir tsugezogt,
Vest mikh nemen in a zumer tog.
Oy, du host mir tsugezogt az du
Vest mikh nemen in a zumer tog.

Oy, a bokher vil mikh nisht,
Un a belhabikhel darf ikh nisht;
Oy, a shnayder vil mikh nisht,
Un a shuster darf ikh nisht.

Der zumer tog iz shoyn gekumen,
Un du host mikh nisht genumen.

Oy, a bokher vil mikh nisht…

You promised me that you will marry me on a summer’s day ,
The summer’s day has come and you haven’t married me

Oy! a boy doesn’t want me and I shouldn’t have a religious bookworm
Oy! a tailor doesn’t want me and I shouldn’t have a shoemaker.
