Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Old Gypsy/White Christmas in Yiddish
Subject: RE: Add: The Old Gypsy/White Christmas in Yiddish
In her most excellent book "Gut Yuntif, Gut Yohr" ("Happy holiday, Happy year") Marie Jaffe translates songs and poems into Yiddish, among them "Home on the Range," "On Top of Old Smoky," "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" and "A Visit From St. Nicholas" (Twas the night before Christmas). I recorded "Home on the Range" in Yiddish on my CD.
