Thread Name: Origins: Tzena, Tzena, Tzena (Weavers, et al.)
Subject: RE: Lyrics for Tzena, Tzena
The English lyrics the Weavers sang are:

"Tzena, Tzena, Tzena, Tzena,
Can't you hear the music playing
In the village square?
Tzena, Tzena, Tzena, Tzena,
Come where all your friends will find us.
There'll be dancing there.
Tzena, Tzena, join the celebration.
There'll be people there from every nation.
Dawn will find us laughing in the sunlight,
Dancing in the village square."

Tzena, Tzena,
Come and dance the hora,
One, two, three, four,
All the boys will envy me for
Tzena, Tzena,
When the band is playing,
My heart's saying 'Tzena, Tzena, Tzena!'"


PS, I see that I missed them above because they were in paragraph form without the line breaks. But since I've formatted them with the breaks, I thought I'd go ahead and post them.
