Thread Name: Lyr Req: Yiddish Partisan Song (Zog Nit Keyn Mol)
Subject: RE: Need Lyrics Yiddish Partisan Song
There are many recordings of this song, but the spelling varies:

Sound samples are available for most, if not all, of these recordings at allmusic, from which I got the above information.

Most sources say: poem by Hirsh Glik (1922-1944), music by Dmitri Pokrass; some say "traditional" (incorrectly, I assume).
