4. Finjan (coffeepot)

The wind is so cool in the night
The logs on the fire are bright
And sparks all adancing arise
A shining like stars in the skies
The singing is hearty
And all through the party
Around and around goes finjan.

La, la, la, la, ...........

The bonfire glows in the night
Our hearts are so happy and light
We know that we're building our land
A garden will rise from the sand
We stand like a mountain
Our homeland a fountain
Around and around goes finjan.

La, la, la, la, ...........


5. Eretz zavat chalav u'dvash.

 A land flowing with milk and honey.


6. Ah-tsay zaytim omdim.

    La la la la la la la ....

Olive trees are standing.
