Subject: RE: Lyrics for Tzena, Tzena
Guest and Jack, thanks. I asked because of the following post (above in this thread) which gives a "kibbutz version:"

"Tsena, tsena, tsena, tsena, Come out, come out, come out, come out,
Ha-banot, u-r'ena Girls, and see
Chalutsim bamoshavah. The pioneers in the colony.

'Al-na, 'al-na, 'al-na, 'al-na, Do not, do not, do not, do not,
'Al-na titchameq'na Do not shirk
Me-`amal v'avodah. From work and labor.

Note soldier has become chalut."
