Parpar Aviv / Shmuel Bass
(Transliterated from Hebrew)

Haraki’a tchelet ziv.
Mi hofi’a im aviv?
Ba ore’ach, kal, lavan,
Ufore’ach el hagan.
          La, la, la

Al kol etz po mikol tzitz,
Hu motzetz po motek mitz.
Rega po hu, rega sham
Ve’eifo hu ne’elam?
          La, la, la

Shuv eleinu, ach shovav!
Tevakshenu, ach lashav…
Haraki’a tchelet ziv.
Mi hofi’a im aviv?
