Subject: Lyr Req: Israeli song: Gina Barzela?
From: Joe_F

I am trying to track down a song in Hebrew that was popular in Israel about 1960. A man is describing his girlfriend, whose name is Gina (Dina?) Barzela or the like, and who I think is a soldier, in terms suitable for an ID: her height, weight, and serial number (which IIRC is 796534).

There's a song called DINA BARZILAY performed by Lehakat Hanachalon on a various-artists 2-CD album called "Different Days" Hed-Arzi label, 1997.

You can find it at Amazon.com.

I hope this is the one you want.

I found a video here (click).


This page (click) has English lyrics, but no Hebrew.

DINA BARZILAI (words by Chaim Hefer; music by Alexander (Sasha) Argov)

Four-Nine-Six-Three-Five-One
Dina Barzilai
Color of the eyes, blue
Color of the hair, chestnut
The height is one hundred and sixty centimeters
Weight, fifty-eight kilograms
Dina
Dina Barzilai
Four-Nine-Six-Three-Five-One

Lieutenant Gad Rafaeli went off to eat lunch
And we, threesome, remained alone in the office
Closets made of metal
Piles of files
And around us thousands of service pouches

Yes, we know well everybody
According to the forms in the service pouch
We know everyone, we know everyone
But from all the service pouches we knew
Just one our hearts touched

Dina
Dina Barzilai
Four-Nine-Six-Three-Five-One
Color of the eyes, blue
Color of the hair, chestnut
The height is one hundred and sixty centimeters
Weight, fifty-eight kilograms
Dina
Dina Barzilai
Four-Nine-Six-Three-Five-One

Lieutenant Gad Rafaeli went off to eat lunch
And we, with Dina, remained alone in the office
We never saw you
Ever, ever
But your image here rises from the desert of files

She was born on the twentieth of the eight, fourty
It was most probably a summer day
Grapefruits in the vineyard, figs in the orchard
A highschool education where the father is [called] Efraim
Six years she's played the piano

Lieutenant Gad Rafaeli went off to eat lunch
Here on the form it's written that you forfeited family support
And your heartbeat when sitting is eighty
And the size of your breast is ninety-three

Your sports interest is swimming
If only we were swimming next to you
Laughing in the waves and laughing on the sand
You had diptheria when you were little
And they jotted down one "c.k." [physically fit] for you

Dina
Dina Barzilai
Four-Nine-Six-Three-Five-One
Color of the eyes, blue
Color of the hair, chestnut
The height is one hundred and sixty centimeters
Weight, fifty-eight kilograms
Dina
Dina Barzilai
Four-Nine-Six-Three-Five-One

Lieutenant Gad Rafaeli went off to eat lunch
The time is one and any minute he's due to return
You received a reprimand
On the eight of the fourth
But we know that the guilty party is really the First Sergeant

The personal grade in discipline is "B"
The general opinion is that you're perfectly fine
We'd still be holding the pouch for hours
But the Lieutenant is coming back, already finished eating
And he too is interested in your file

Dina
Dina Barzilai
Four-Nine-Six-Three-Five-One
Color of the eyes, blue
Color of the hair, chestnut
The height is one hundred and sixty centimeters
Weight, fifty-eight kilograms
Dina
Dina Barzilai
Four-Nine-Six-Three-Five-One

Thanks very much, people! No wonder I couldn't find her -- not only did I misspell her name, but I got her serial number completely wrong. Lucky for the army I wasn't working in that office.
