GUEST,Gerry Lyr Req: S'Falt a Shnei (The Snow Falls) -Yiddish (16) RE: Lyr Req: S'Falt a Shnei (The Snow Falls) -Yiddish 27 Jul 20


I found one stanza of the hamentashn song I mentioned here just earlier:

Yachne Dvoshe fort in shtot, halt zich in eyn pakn. 
Zi darf of Purim koyfn mel, Homntashn bakn.
Hop! mayne homntashn, Hop! mayne vayse.
Hop! mit mayne homntashn Hot pasirt a mayse!

In English,

Yachne Dvoshe goes to the town, so as to be able to continue packing
she needs to buy flour for Purim, hamantaschen baking.
hop! my hamantaschen, hop! my white ones
a story happened

My notes say the words are by M. Pirozhnikov.
No snowfall in this song, but the same lead character as in the song Grishka found.

I found the full text here. Snow falls in the second stanza! There's also a link there to a recording on Youtube.
