GUEST,Gerry Lyr Req/Add: Yiddish songs (67* d) RE: Lyr Req/Add: Yiddish songs 29 Dec 18

About a year ago, Joe Offer wrote, "I swear that the Barry Sisters sing "Ikh hob dir tsufil lib," which doesn't sound grammatically correct to me." Joe, I've listened to one of the Barry Sisters' recordings on Youtube, and it does sound like they are singing "dir" but it also sounds like they are singing "Ir" instead of "Ikh". Maybe they just had trouble with the "kh" sound, or maybe their dialect of Yiddish didn't have it.
