lyrics

YIDDISH:

A kalte nakht, a nebldike, finster umetum
Shteyt a yingele fartroyert un kukt zikh arum
Fun regn shitst im nor a vant, a koshikl halt er in hant
Un zayne oygn betn yedn shtum.

Kupitye, koyf zhe, koyf zhe papirosn
Trukene, fun regn nit fargosn
Koyf zhe, bilik benemones
Koyft un hot oyf mir rakhmones
Ratevet fun hunger mikh atsind


ENGLISH:

A cold night, foggy, darkness everywhere
A boy stands sadly and looks around
Only a wall protects him from the rain
He holds a basket in his hand
And his eyes beg everyone silently.

Please, Buy my cigarettes!
Dry ones, not wet from the rain
Buy real cheap
Buy and have pity on me
Save me from hunger now
