I have it on the 1997 CD "Possessed" (with Yiddish, transliterated Yiddish and English translation) but it would be handy to have it in a form I can just print on an A4 sheet. Anybody got it? Google comes up with nothing.

Footnote: it seems from the sleeve notes that (unlike most of the album) it's traditional. So it ought to be on a Yiddish song website somewhere.

Am I correct in translating 'eyn mol' as 'One Time" or perhaps, "Once"?

From: Joe Offer

What a great song! It sounds almost like a sea chantey.

EYN MOL TU IKH ZIKH BANAYEN
(At Least Once I Feel Revitalized)


Oy, eyn mol, eyn mol, eyn mol, eyn mol,
Eyn mol, eyn mol, tu ikh zikh banayen;
A gantse vokh horevet men dokh,
Oyf shabes darf men layen...

Oy, layen, layen? Layen, layen ?
Layen, layen zol men nisht badarfn:
Shabes on khreyn kon men zikh bageyn,
Ober nisht on bronfn...

Oy, bronfn, bronfn? Bronfn, bronfn ?
Bronfn dos iz mayn nekhome;
Un az ikh nem a kos nokh a kos,
Derkvik ikh mayn neshome!

Mayn neshome, mayn neshome? Mayn neshome
Mit mayn nekhome zaynen dokh in gantsn
Un az ikh nem a kos nokh a kos,
Geyen di fiselekh tantsn...

Tantsn, tantsn? Tantsn, tantsn? ?
Tantsn iz gor a hoykhe mide;
Un az ikh nem a kos nokh a kos,
Tanz ikh mit a khside!

Mit a khside? Mit a khside?
Mit a khside iz dokh a groyse aveyre;
Ober az ikh nem a kos nokh a kos,
Hob ikh nit keyn breyre...

Tsu tantsn, tsu zingen, tsu shpringen -
Dertsu tu ikh toygn;
Az ikh makh a shnaps nokh a shnaps,
Bakum ikh klore oygn.

Oygn, oygn, oygn, oygn,
Oygn, oygn hob ikh klore;
Az ikh makh a shnaps nokh a shnaps
Iz shehakol nihyo bidvoroy


At least once I feel revita1ised
The whole week I work,
But on the day of Shabbath,
I permit myself a little drink of shnapps
And feel rejuvenated.

I feel a sense of solace,
My feet itch to dance, to jump,
And I sing for joy.

Sorry about the [abridged] translation. I'll see if I can find a better one. I almost can figure this one out, but not quite.

MIDI available on request, if you're nice.

The song is also on a Smithsonian/Folkways album titled Raasche and Alan Mills Sing Jewish Folk Songs.
Here's their version:

EIN MOL TU ICH ZICH BANAYEN

Ein mol (3)
Ein mol tu ich zich banayen (2)
A gantze voch horevet men doch
Un Shabes darf men layen.... (2)

Layen (3)
Layen zol men nit badarfn (2)
On fish, on chrein, ken men zich bagein (2)
Ober nit on bronfn

Bronfn (3)
Bronfn dos iz doch der icker (2)
Un az ich nem a kos noch a kos
Ver ich teikef shiker.... (2)

Shiker (3)
Shiker iz a gute mide
Un az ich nem a kos noah a kos
Tanz ich mit a ch'side... (2)

layen - borrowing/lending
bronfn - whiskey
shiker - drunk, drunkard (noun or adjective)

There's a translation on the CD. I took along to the local klez group this evening and Simon Carlyle said it was wildly inaccurate in places. We meet again in two weeks - I'll post a fixed version of the Klezmatics translation after that.
