DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: EREV SHEL SHOSHANIM
From: RS
Date: 19 Sep 97 - 01:23 AM

"Erev Shel Shoshanim" has been on my hard drive since February ... it took a specific request (on the Hebrew / Yiddish / Ladino songs thread) to get me finally to post it!

I originally transcribed this for a song circle with the theme of "Songs through the Day" - this of course being one of the Evening Songs. It is such a favourite that I included it again on my "Women's Song Evening" songsheet, in the category of Love Songs.


Music: Joseph Hadar

Text: Moshe Dor


Erev shel shoshanim, neitsei nah el habustan
Mor b'samim ul'vonah, 1'ragleich miftan.

Lailah yoreid l'at, v'ruach shoshan noshvah
Havah elchash lach shir balat, zemer shel ahavah.

Shachar, homah yonah, rosheich malei t'lalim
Pich el haboker shoshanah, ekt'fenu li.

English Translation (non-singable):
[from NFTY Chordster]

It is an evening of roses.
Let us go out to the grove.
Myrrh, spices and incense
are a carpet for you to tread.

The night comes upon us slowly,
and a breeze of roses is blowing.
Let me whisper a song to you quietly,
a song of love.

It is dawn, a dove is cooing.
Your hair is filled with dew.
Your lips are like a rose in the morning.
I'll pick it for myself.

The definitive rendition is by the folk duo the Paravarim. It also appears on many compilations.
