Undzer nigundl – our little tune

What is as sad as a Yiddish song. And what can make you as freylach – merry. If this song from some reason doesn’t appeal to you, you can always contemplate how on earth it is possible to sing such a song with such a big hat.

We have a little tune, in pleasure and in joy. We sing it, we sing it, and it sounds so beautiful; It was sung by grandma (bobe) and grandpa (zeyde) when they were still children.

Oy-oy-oy, this is how the tune sounds now, such a cheerful tune (freylechs), such a cheerful tune, sing dear children….
