Ot do hostu, libster, gevart

Ot do inem shotn

nokh kentik dayn trot iz,

Verse 1

I wander in the ghetto

From street to street

And cannot find a place [for myself]

My love is no more

How can one bear it?

People, say just a word to me

Over my home, now, lights up

the blue sky

What do I get from this now?

I stand like a beggar

by every gate

and beg a bit of sunlight

Refrain

Springtime

take away my sorrow

and bring my love

my dear one, back

Springtime

on your blue wings

o, take my heart with you

and give it back my happiness

Springtime

on your blue wings

o, take my heart with you

and give it back my happiness

Verse 2

(this is verse 3 in the original)

This year the spring

has come early

What’s blooming is longing for you

I see you as if it were now

laden with flowers

a happy one you come to me

The sun has poured

its rays over the garden

The earth sprouts green

My dear one, my love

where did you fall?

You don’t go out of my thoughts

Refrain

Springtime

take away my sorrow

and bring my love

my dear one, back

Springtime

on your blue wings

o, take my heart with you

and give it back my happiness

Springtime

on your blue wings

o, take my heart with you

and give it back my happiness

Original Verse 2 (not on Tango Yona CD)

I go to work

past our house

in sorrow – the gate is closed

The day is so hot

that the flowers have wilted

They _ — for them also it is night

By night on my way back

_ sorrow

Here, love, you waited

Here is the shadows

— your step is still familiar —

you used to kiss me lovingly and gently
