Don't worry, fellows, about what will become of us. We will travel to an inn; over there will surely be vodka.

Russian tune

Musical Notes

A carefree, Joyous melody, dating from the time of the second Chabad Rebbe, the Mitteler Rebbe. Originally sung by his Chassidim as they traveled the road to Lubavitch on their way to visit the Rebbe. Symbolically, the words reveal the deep devotion of the Chassidim to their Rebbe. When they arrive at Lubavitch, they will lack nothing.

Taught in the time of the
Mitteler Rebbe

Better transliteration from my Russian friend:

Nie zhurites' khloptzi,
shto zhe s nami budiet.
Mi pajediem da karchyomki - tam ie vodka budiet!

Не журитесь, хлопцы,
Что же с нами будет.
Мы поедем до корчомки,
Там и водка будет! Reply

Correct translation A bit wrong translation.
Don't worry boys
What will happen to us
We will drive over to Karczemki
There will be Vodka.

Karczemki (Karchumki) is not an "inn", it is a town (a Shtetl) in the north of Poland, between the Wejherowo and Gdansk. Reply
