A very fun, very simple song based on a couple of Biblical verses.
2 Chronicles 26: 9 "Moreover Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at the corner gate, and at the valley gate, and at the turning of the wall, and fortified them.
10 Also he built towers in the desert, and digged many wells: for he had much cattle, both in the low country, and in the plains: husbandmen also, and vine dressers in the mountains, and in Carmel: for he loved husbandry."
The melody, composed by Yochanan Zeray, is basicaly
dum dum dum dum dum DADUM

It was one of the Dudaim's most famous songs. In their arrangement they sing 'borot rabim' (many wells) before and after singing the solitary verse.

Can be listened to here:

It's the 3rd track.

וי'ן עוזי"ו מ'"לים 'ירושלים
ויחזקם.
וי'ן מ'"לים 'מי"'ר
ויחצו' 'ורות ר'ים.

Va'yiben Uziyahu migdalim bi'Yerushalaim
va'yechazkem.
Va'yiben migdalim bamidbar
va'yachtzov borot rabim.



And Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem
and fortified them.
And he built towers in the desert
and digged many wells.

As I remember it, it goes:

Va'yiben Uziyahu migdalim bi'Yerushalaim
va'yechazkem (x2).
Va'yiben migdalim (x2) bamidbar
va'yachtzov borot rabim (x2).

And there is also a very nice, easy (but fast) dance to this music.
