Zeylig Barditshever

Would you like a flock of sheep? - I've got one
Would you like a bird, God's wonder? - I've got one
My flock of sheep is my wife and my children
They are God's wonder
Ele, Bele

Would you like millions? - I've got them
Would you like gramophones? - I've got them
Each child of mine is worth millions,
And they play music better than gramophones
Ele, Bele

Would you like a string of pearls? - I've got one
Would you like a diamond? - I've got one
My elder daughter-in-law is called Pearl
And her Berl is the diamond of a husband
Ele, Bele

Of course, he wouldn't like it
Let him envy me
Ele, Bele
You live in misery, you've got nothing - and I have everything
Ele, Bele
You'll burst with envy, and I'll be singing songs
Ele, Bele
