Thread Name: Lyr Req: Yiddisha Eyes (Irving Berlin)
Subject: RE: Req/ADD: 'Yiddisha Eyes' by Irving Berlin 1910
The reason the romance broke up was because he was after her only for the money and her old man realized it because he had done the same. I assume both were Jewish because the author, Irving Berlin, also was of the same faith. Nowhere in the lyrics can I see anything that implies that she was a gentile.
