Thread Name: Hebrew/ Yiddish/ Ladino songs
Subject: RE: Hebrew/ Yiddish/ Ladino songs
All throughout school, we had to sing "Bashana Haba'a" (Next Year) at the last day of school, just before the summer holiday. Guess that explains why I'm not fond of it.
The Finjan song lives on in schoolboy parodies. The refrain of:

haru'ach noshevet krira-ra-ra
nosif od keisam lamdura-ra-ra

(The breeze blows chill-ra-ra
we'll add another twig to the campfire-ra-ra)

is changed, so you can add either a policeman, teacher, or anyone else for that matter, to the campfire.
