Moses Milner

Come little boy, closer to me
And look at the little words

Wonderful words.
Come over faster, come faster to me!

Faster, faster, don't be afraid and don't worry.
Here, this is the way, sit down,
And listen with your mind.

S
it down this way and listen carefully:

komets alef - о
komets beis - bo
komets giml - go
komets doled - do

pasekh alef - a
pasekh beis - ba
pasekh giml - ga
pasekh doled - da

This is the way, little boy, this is the way to study.
Well, well, good little boy,
Take a close look into the book
And repeat it once again:

komets alef - о
komets beis - bo

Say it louder, stronger!

o bo,

This is the way, little boy, that one studies:
a ba ga da

Say it louder, stronger!

This is the way, more happily, livelier!

This is the way, little boy, that one studies the Torah
The Torah is the greatest treasure
You should be a good little boy
You should not be a little rascal
Oh you are a little rascally youth,
It is enough, close the reader,
You are for the day.

Remember, child, a Jew should study the Torah!
So preaches the Holy Man.
When people ask you
What you did in Hebrew school,
Say that you studied the Torah.
Remember the Torah!
