Shnei Ocrhim / Shmuel Bass
(transliterated from Hebrew)

Shnei orchim li bahalon,
Halo hem yona veyon.
Mishovach asher bagan
Levakreini ba’u kan.

Rosh heni’a yon bli sof:
Boker, boker, boker tov!
Veyona hosifa hen:
Boker, boker, boker hen!

Az zarakti al hasaf
Zer’onim melo hakaf.
Yom yom bo’u ve’eten
Rosh heni’u: hen, hen, hhen!
