Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Yosl Ber/Yossel Bear Gayt in Militar
Subject: YIDDISH SONG Yosel Baer
Sorry I havent figured how to get back to the old thread that I started on Yossel Bear gaet in militair but here it is

YOSL BER on page 173 Pearls of Yiddish Song.
it has the melody and guitar ghords.. Translation as follows
My name is Yosl Ber and I serve in the atmy
I wear boots and a uniform just like an officer
I was a cobblers apprentioce and I licked the soles with my tongue
Today I cary a rifle a sword and shoemaking can do to hell

Sung by Sidor Belarsky
