DADGBE Lyr Req/Add: Yiddish songs (67* d) RE: Lyr Req: Yiddish songs 04 May 07


Hi Mark and all,

Gilbert and Sulivan in Yiddish is some of the most hilarious stuff I've ever heard. I don't know about your translations, Mark, but when I was a kid I heard a version of Little Buttercup sung in Yiddish. I laughed for days over -

Zey ruft mir claner putter shissel,
Claner, shaner puter shissel...

Which translates roughly as -

They call me little tub o' butter,
Pretty, little tub o' butter.

Yikes!

Best to all,
Ray
