Yonatan Razel - No More Raisins, No More Almonds

Lyrics in English:

No More Raisins, No More Almonds
 
No raisins and no almonds,
Your father has not gone out trading,
Lu, lu, lu, my son,
Lu, lu, lu, my son.
 
He has left us, gone away,
To the end of the world,
Lu, lu, lu, my son,
Lu, lu, lu, my son.
 
Owls are screeching, wolves are howling,
God have pity on us and help us,
Lu, lu, lu, my son,
Lu, lu,lu, my son.
 
Somewhere he stands and watches,
Lots of almonds and raisins,
Lu, lu, lu, my son,
Lu, lu, lu, my son.
 
There’s no doubt that he will come,
To watch you son, my only crown,
Lu, lu, lu, my son,
Lu, lu, lu, my son.

Origonal Lyrics in Yiddish:

Nit kayn rozhinkes, nit kayn mandlen
 
Lyrics: Yeshayahu Shpigl
Melody: David Beyglman
 
Nit kayn rozhinkes in nit kayn mandlen
Der tate iz nit geforn handlen,
Lyulinke mayn zin
Lyulinke mayn zin.
 
Er hot farlozt indz in avek,
Vi di velt hot nor an ek,
Lyulinke mayn zin,
Lyulinke mayn zin.
 
S’shrayen soves, s’voyen velf,
Got derbarem zikh in helf,
Lyulinke mayn zin,
Lyulinke myn zin.
 
Ergets shtayt er in er vakht,
Mandlen, rozhinkes a sakh,
Lyulinke mayn zin,
Lyulinke man zin. 
 
Kimen r’vet of zikher shoyn,
Zen dikh kind, mayn eyntsik kroyn,
Lyulinke mayn zin,
Lyulinke mayn zin.
