The Words

Translation


Bei mir bistu sheyn,
Bei mir hos tu heyn,
Bay mir bistu eyner oyf der velt.
Bei mir bistu sheyn,
Bei mir hostu heyn,
Bei mir bistu tayerer fun gelt.


Bei mir bist du schoen,
Please let me explain
Bei mir bist du schoen
Means you're grand
Bei mir bist du schoen,
Again I'll explain
It means you're the
Fairest in the land
I could say bella, bella,
Even say wunderbar
Each language only helps me tell you
How grand you are
I've tried to explain,
Bei mir bist du schoen
So kiss me, and say you understand
