Bei mir bist du schön — please let me explain,

Bei mir bist du schön means that you're grand.
Bei mir bist du schön, again I'll explain,
It means you're the fairest in the land.

I could say, 'Bella, bella', even say 'voonderbar'.   
             Am             C°       B+      
Each language only helps me tell you, How grand you are.

I've tried to explain 'Bei mir bist du schön',
So kiss me and say you understand.

Kh'vel dir zogn, dir glaykh tzu hern
Az du zolst mir libe derklern
Ven du redst mit di oygn
Volt ikh mit dir gefloygn vu du vilst
S'art mikh nit on
Ven du host a bisele seykhl
Un ven du vaytzt dayn kindershn shmeykhl
Vendu bist vild vi indianer
Bist afile a galitsianer
Zog ikh dos art mikh nit.

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.

Fil sheyne meydlekh hobn gevolt nemen mir,
Un fun zay ale oys-geklibn hob ikh nor dikh.
