Yosl Ber / A Patriot - Lyrics

heysn heys ikh Yosl Ber
an ikh din in militer
shtivl trog ikh, а mundir
l'hovdl vi an ofitsir
geven bin ikh a shuster yung
gelekt podeshves mitn tsung
haynt hob ikh a biks, a shverd
shusteray hob ikh in dr'erd
yosl ber dint in militer

Yosl Ber
din in militer
Yosl Yosl Yosl Ber
din in militer

yes my name is Yosl Ber / & I serve the militar'
steel-toed boots & a uniform / keep this soldier's carcass warm
I used to work in a factory / 'til the army drafted me
now I work for army brass / factory can kiss my a
Yosl Ber
serves the militar'
Yosl Yosl Yosl Ber
serves the militar'

Vashe visokorodye, kh'bin take a tray er
zelner un take derfar bin ikh antlofn!
ikh hob azoy faynt dem soyne, az ikh vel
im afile in di oygn nit onkukn
[accused of having broken his oath to the Czar by running away
from the front, the arrested Jewish soldier replys to his officer:
"but sir, 1 am indeed a faithful soldier!
that's why I ran away from the front!
I hate the enemy so much, I don't even want to look him in the eye!"]

gey ikh mir in gas aroys
un ikh zukh a meydl oys
gib mir bronfn, vayn un fish
un vos vayter, zog ikh nisht

every night I hit the town / all you ladies gather 'round
gimme brandy, gimme wine / gimme something else that's fine

Yosl Ber
din in militer
Yosl Yosl Yosl Ber
din in militer
