All I Got Was Words

Speaking of words… here’s a really old classic.

 

All I Got Was Words

by: unknown

 

When I was young and fancy free

My folks had no fine clothes for me

All I got was words:

Gott vet geben!

Gott tsu dankn!

Zoll mir nur leben un sein gezund.

 

When I was wont to travel far

They didn’t provide me with a car

All I got was words:

Gay gezunt!

Fuhr pamelech!

Hob a glicklikhe reise!

 

I wanted to increase my knowledge

But they couldn’t send me to college,

All I got was words:

Hob seichel!

Zei nit kein nahr!

Toire iz di beste schoire!

 

The years have flown. The world has turned.

Things I have forgotten, things I’ve learned,

Yet I remember:

Zog dem eemss!

Gib tsedakah!

Hob rachmaness!

Zei a mentsch!
