Sense - Yoshke - Yiddish music
(I am transcribing the lyrics they are singing. Mind you, they performers are american and do not speak clear Yiddish). Transcription is in standard yiddish. Performance is in galitsianer dialect.

S'iz a tumel a geruder
S'felt es on a shrek
Unzer liber guter bruder
Yoshke fort avek


Oy oy oy oy
Yoshke fort avek
Nokh a sho un nokh a sho
Un ban geyt shoyn avek

Koyf mir nit keyn lokenes
Ikh darf zey nit mer
Koyf mir a por shtivelekh
Tsu geyn in militer

(nokh a kush, nokh a kush, der ban geyt shoyn avek)

Zay zhe mir gezunt
Mayn tayere muter
Dir iz dokh shlekht
Un mir iz dokh biter


Zay zhe mir gezunt
Mayn liber foter
Got meg shoyn helfn mir
Malkhome vern poter


Kuk on unzer liber Yoshke
Zogt di mame tsu mayn tatn
Er vet zayn der shenster
Fun ale soldatn.


Zay zhe mir gezunt
Mayn tayere kale
Nokh dir vel ikh benken
Mer funem ale


Oy oy oy
Yoshke fort avek
Nokh a kush un nokh a kush
Der ban geyt shoyn avek

Do not buy me and lockets
Do not make me look pretty
Buy yourself a pair of boots
Because you are in the army now

Yoshke is going away
Another hour, just one hour and his train will be off

Do not grieve for me
Do not cry over me
It is nothing
When I get to the army
I shall be the best soldier in my company

oy oy oy
Yoshke is going away.
Just one more kiss
And the train will be off
