Ruach


Lyrics

Ruach, ruach, ruach, ruach
Lama lotish kavla ruach
Min haboker tishtolel
Vehinek’var bahaleil.

ruach = wind, spirit

רוּחַ, רוּחַ!
לָמָּה לֹא תִּשְׁכַּב לָנוּחַ?
מִן הַבֹּקֶר תִּשְׁתּוֹלֵל!
וְהִנֵּה כְּבָר בָּא הַלֵּיל…
(source)

Translation

Wind, wind, wind, wind
Why don’t you lay down to rest?
From the morning you rage!
And here already comes the night. (source: Emily Fuller)

  1. Here’s what I found in Hebrew from http://www.zemereshet.co.il/song.asp?id=3379 :

    רוּחַ, רוּחַ!
    רוּחַ, רוּחַ!
    לָמָּה לֹא תִּשְׁכַּב לָנוּחַ?
    מִן הַבֹּקֶר תִּשְׁתּוֹלֵל!
    וְהִנֵּה כְּבָר בָּא הַלֵּיל…

    There’s a recording on that site as well. The best translation I can make with my limited Hebrew knowledge and an online dictionary is:

    Wind, wind, wind, wind
    Why don’t you lay down to rest?
    From the morning you rage!
    And here already comes the night.

    Thank you for all of the songs you share! I love using them in my classroom.
