Lyrics - Transliteration

(Hebrew folk song)

Dodi li va’ani lo
Haro’eh bashoshanim (repeat)

1. Mi zot ola min hamidbar
Mi zot ola
M’kuteret mor, mor ulevona
Mor ulevona  Refrain

2. Libavtini achoti kala
Libavtini kala (repeat)  Refrain

3. Uri tzafon uvo’i teiman (repeat)  Refrain

English Translation – My Beloved is Mine

My beloved is mine and I am his,
The shepherd [grazing his flock] among the lilies.

1. Who is this, rising up from the desert
Who is she, rising up?
Perfumed with myrrh and frankincense
Myrrh and frankincense. Refrain

2. You have captured my heart, my sister, my bride.
You have captured my heart, my bride. Refrain

3. Awaken, north wind, and come, south wind. Refrain

Hebrew Lyrics – דודי לי

דודי לי ואני לו הרועה בשושנים.
מי זאת עולה מן המדבר (מי זאת עולה)
דודי לי…
ליבבתיני אחותי כלה (ליבבתיני כלה)
דודי לי…
עורי צפון ובואי תימן
דודי לי…
