One of my favorite songs. I love how they blended Sefardic and Ashkenazi stuff together. Reply

the words.. to m. pederson
my 6 year old son wanted me to answer you.
This incredible song is a blend of Ashkenazic and Sephardic phrases, expressions and culture, showing the different cultures in the Jewish people united in one song.

shetihay limazal shetihay, im yirtzeh hashem bei dir shetihay.
et hachatan o’ sefardi, kallah no’eh ashkenazi, rochel imeinu o’ sefardi, mammeh ruchel askenazi. baba sali o’ sefardi, rabi nachman ashkenazi, shetihay limazal o’ sefardi, im yirtzeh hashem bei dir ashkenazi.
yala yala ya’alili..
gina gina o’ sefardi, oid yishoma ashkenazi, yossi avi o’ sefardi, yom hashemini ashkenazi. mo’adim lisimcha o’ sefardi, ah gut yomtov ashkenazi, shetihay limazal o’ sefardi, im yirtzeh hashem bei dir ashkenazi.
