Pesah ala mano

Purim, Purim, Purim lano
Pesah, Pesah ala mano
Laz masas’si stan faziento
Loz japrakis si stan koziendo
Aman aman…
Il Dio bendico muz da mazal.

Purim, Purim, Purim lano
Pesah, Pesah ala mano
La nona sta diziendo aloz njetos
Alipja il puelvo, kantoniz i loz
tecos
Aman, aman…
Il Dio bendico muz da mazal.

Purim, Purim, Purim lano
Pesah, Pesah ala mano
Il Singjor Rubi diso a laz tijas
No kumer il pan oco dijas
Aman, aman…
Il dio bendio muz da mazal.

Now that “Purim” (the Feast of Esther, holiday of gift-giving) is over, it is time to prepare for “Passover” (the holiday commermorating the Exodus from Egypt). The “Matzohs” are being baked, the stuffed leaves prepared. Grandmother leads her troops against every crumb, every drop of dust, even the ceilings are not safe. And then comes the Rabbi to inspect our efforts, and to remind old aunts not to eat bread for eight days. Purim is over and Passover approaches. May Almighty God give us good fortune.

Durme, Durme

Durme, durme iziko di madre
Durme, durme sin ansja i dolor.

Sijenti djoja palavrikas de tu madre
Las palavras di Sema Israel.

Durme, durme izziko de madre
Kon ermozura di Sema Israel.

Los pastelikos vo kumer, con almendrikas i la miel
Los pastelikos vo kumer, con almendrikas i la myel.

Beautiful Chanukah is here, eight candles for me.

One candle, two candles, three candles, four candles, five candles, six candles, seven candles, eight candles for me.

Many parties will be held, with joy and with pleasure.

One candle, two candles, three candles, four candles, five candles, six candles, seven candles, eight candles for me.

We will eat pastelikos [a Sephardic delicacy] with almonds and honey.

One candle, two candles, three candles, four candles, five candles, six candles, seven candles, eight candles for me.
