Thread Name: Yiddish workers songs
Subject: RE: Yiddish workers songs
As so often a problem of orthography. A certain knowledge of Middle (not Old!) High German can prove helpful.

Look up "lomir ale freylekh zayn": nine hits with Google, one of them DADGBE's question.
[Note: When not using the quotation marks you'll get 733 hits where only single words are contained, not the entire phrase only.]

Sing and enjoy
