    KLEIBM NAkhes FIN KINder.

    I’m going to translate some Jorma songs into Yiddish.
    Meanwhile, I can sing the Yiddish version of Donna Summers’ song “Hot Stuff”,
    which I used to sing with Bill Graham.

    Give me a minute to tune up.
    This stuff takes time…

    As Bill said over 20 years ago, Yiddish is a dying language.

    It’s easier to learn than Hebrew because there’s no need to learn an entire new alphabet.

    So all us Jewish folks should:
    Keep Yiddish alive — YEAH!
    Keep Yiddish alive — YEAH!

    Barbara, for a little religious irony, how about Light of this World?

  18. Barbara Jacobs

    O.K. Jeff.
    I will work on that one! 😉

    I’m doing the translation, as Bill would have done it, into Polish Yiddish.

    As you may know, there are variations of Yiddish; which is the cultural language of the Jewish people. As such, word-to-word translations are not always possible nor would it be as descriptive. That’s the fun of Yiddish.

    “I am the Light of this World”:

    “Meer Likht doos Velt”

    So, that would be the translation of the song title.
    The actual meaning of the lyrics will take some time for me to do.

    In between writing and sending out Press releases, I’ll try to work on this some more.
    Please give me some time.
    Ah, I miss Bill so much.

    Here is a poem I wrote in Yiddish, for:


    Izze iz shayn vee dee leVOOneh (Izze is beautful as the moon)
    A gerootn kint (a bright and clever child)
    In shpeelt peeAneh derTSEE (and plays the piano, too)

    Izze iz Zachary’s shvester (Izze is Zachary’s sister)
    a gerootn kinter (They are credits to our family)

    Izze iz Vanessa’s tokhter (Izze is Vannesa’a daughter)
    Izze iz Jorma’s tokhter (Izze is Jorma’s daughter)
    Der tateh Jorma, der mameh Vanessa (her father Jorma, her mother Vanessa)
    Hob dikh zayer leeb (Love you very much)

    Izze iz SHLAIferick (Izze is sleepy)
    Izze-laibm (Izze, dear)
    gay shlufn (go to sleep)
    a giteh nakht (Good night)
