DOS IDISHE STOLTZ

JEWISH PRIDE

You must remember this, DI MUST ZIJ DERMANEN

A bris is still a bris, AS A BRIS IS DOJ A BRIS UND

A chai is just a chai. A JAI IS DOJ A JAI

Pastrami still belongs on rye, UND PASTRAMI GEHERT TZU RYE

As time goes by. AS DI ZEIT GUEIT ARIBER

With holidays in view, AS SE CUMT TZU YOM TOV

A Jew is still a Jew, A YID IS DOJ A YID

On that you can rely. OIF DEN KENST DU FARTROIEN

No matter if we eat sushi A FILLE AS MEN EST SUSHI

As hours slip by. AS DI SHOIEN GUEIN ARIBER

Old shtetl customs, never out of date.

DI ALTE SHTETEL MINUGUEN, GEIN NIT FORIBER

All those potatoes mother has to grate.

ALE DI BARBULES DI MAME DARF NOJ RAIBEN

Honey, tsimus, latkes, chopped liver on our plate

HONIK, TZIMES, LATKES, GUEFILTE FISH

Guefilte fish, chopped liver, schmaltz and a

shpritz,

UND GUEHAKTE LEIBER SCHMALTZ UND A SHPRITZ

The best that gelt can buy

DOS BESTE VOSGUELT KEN KOIFEN

Some would send us to perdition,

ASAJ VOLTEN UNS BAGRUBEN

But we’re strengthened by tradition,

OBER MIR ZENEN FARSHTARKT BY TRADITZIE

That no one can deny.

UND DOS KEN KEINER ZAJ NISCHT UPZUGEN

We roam, but we recall our birthright,

MIR VANDERN, OBER MIR DERMONENZJJ VU MIR ZENEN GEBOIRN

As time goes by. AS DI ZEIT GUEIT ARIBER

Dreidels and chocolate, never out of date.

DREIDLS UND CHOCOLAT, GUEIENEN NISHT AUS DER MODE

Ancient Jewish stories that we all relate.

DI ALTE IDISHE MAISES MIR ALLE DERZEILEN

Blue-and-white gift wrap, everything that’s great?

VAIS UND BLU MIR VIKLEN EIN ALS VUS IS TAIER

And festive chazerai!

UND IOMTEVDIKE JAZERAI

It’s still the same old Torah,

ES IST DOJ DI ALTE TOIRE

It’s still the same menorah,

UND DI ALTE MENOIRE

We’ve latkes still to fry.

UND DI LATKES MIR DARFEN BRUTN

It’s at yomtov when we feel most blessed,

ES IST IOMTEV VEN MIR FILMER ZAIJ GEBENSCHT

As time goes by.

AS DI TZEIT GEIT ARIBER
