Samuel Steinberg - Nellie Casman

My strength is slipping away
I feel i cant go on
My heart is always aching.
I'm hot and cold,
And im getting grey and old
You all knows what's bothering me:
Love is burning fearfully
I fell I'm expiring
For my Joseph, my darling, my dear
Handsome fellow
(May he be well)
I'm dying for you!

Oy oy oy Joseph, Joseph, Joseph, Joseph,
My life is slipping away without you
Oy oy oy Joseph, Joseph, Joseph, Joseph,
Your queen still sits and waits for you
Oy oy oy Joseph, Joseph, Joseph, Joseph,
I dream only of you every night
When temptation
Beckons me again -
Yosl, I'm dying for you!
