DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyr Add: Morgan Street
From: Jack Campin
Date: 06 Nov 15 - 07:18 PM

From the Klezmer Klub's CD "Whitechapel, mayn Vaytshepl", KRCD001, 2009.

Both Morgan Street and Old Solomon Levy, collected by Derek Reid from his mother, Sylvie Reid, were well known street songs or children's chants that she had learned as a child on the streets of Whitechapel.

My home in Morgan Street
Es iz mir voyl un git
Ikh hob mayn eygn shtib
Nor shmekt fun farshtinkene fish

Dort shteyt a meydl in a kleydl
Shrayt "zeks a penny beygl!"
Un dem yidl mit zayn fidl
Er shpilt zayn violin

My home in Morgan Street
It makes me happy, it's good
I have my own room
Though it reeks of stinking fish

There stands a girl in a dress
Shouting "Six a penny baygels!"
And a small Jew with his fiddle
Is playing the violin

I'll ABC the tune when I get the chance.
