Sorry for the delay. Are you sure that is the title. I have 7 or 8 books of Yiddish songs and cant find any song with that title. Could it be the first line or the chorus? Any Ideas If you dont get anywhere try National Yiddish Book Center 1021 West St. Amherst MA. 01002-3375 Phone 800-535-3595 Fax 413-256-4700

Well, after all this time, I found an English translation of the song in a CD booklet. If anybody would like to transcribe the Yiddish from the recording, click on my name below and send me e-mail, and I'll send you a RealAudio recording of the song.
-Joe Offer (click to e-mail)-
I have a possible e-mail address for the requester - I'll try to send the information to him.


OY MAME, BIN IKH FARLIBT
(Oh, Mother, Am I in Love!)
(Abraham Ellstein - translation by Shirim Klezmer Orchestra)

(Spoken) Daughter: Oh Mom, I feel hot!
Mother:(Do you have a fever?)
No, oh Mom, now I'm cold!
(Are you sick?)
No. Oh Mom, I'm in love!
(In love? Better to be sick.)


When he's inspired and playing
A pretty, heartfelt Yiddish song on his fiddle
Oh Mom, I feel so good!
His gorgeous black eyes drew me to him,
Oh Mom, I feel so wonderfully good!

And when he says "Hey you girl,
You are so sweet and gentle,"
And his playing reaches into my heart,
I feel like dancing, feel like singing,
Oh my, I'm going crazy!
I can't live without him.

Oh Mom, am I in love!
(Don't be silly, daughter.)
Oh Mom, am I in love!
(Don't bother me.)
A young musician, dear mother, is constantly in my thoughts,
(Oh my!)
I laugh and cry and don't even know what world I'm in!
(All is lost.)

Oh Mom, am I in love!
(You will have a hard life.)
Oh Mom, am I in love!
(You will always be poor.)
I could grab hold of the whole wide world
(He'll drag you all over the world...)
And hold it close to me
(...and make a mess out of you.)
Oh Mom, am I in love!
(Oh daughter, you are in love.)

Oh Mom, am I in love!
(What will your Father say?)
Oh Mom, am I in love!
(What will the neighbors say?)
A young musician, dear mother, is constantly in my thoughts.
(This is terrible!)
I laugh and cry and don't even know what world I'm in!
(All is lost.)

Oh Mom, am I in love!
(Nothing can be done.)
Oh Mom, am I in love!
(There's no one to talk to here.)
I could grab hold of the whole wide world
(We must prepare the dowry, invite the guests,)
And hold it close to me
(And set up the wedding canopy.)
Oh Mom, am I in love!
(Oh daughter, you are in love!)

(The mother's answers, in parentheses, are spoken or half-sung, and don't appear to be part of the original song.)

A great version of this song by the Barry Sisters is
included in an CD called SHALOM. They are listed as
the BARRY (Bagelman) Sisters.

The trouble with Yiddish songs, there are many ways to spell them in the Roman alphabet. I found these listed at Allmusic.com. Each one represents a recording or two.

O, Momme! Bin Ich Farliebt
Oi Mama Bin Ich Farliebt
Oi Mama, Bin Ich Farlieht
Oi Mamme Bin Ich Farliebt
Oi Mamme! Bin Ich Farliebt
Oj, Mame, Bin Ich Farlibt
Oj, Mame, Bin Ich Farlibt
Oj, mame, bin ich farlibt
O'Mamme, Bin Ich Farliebt
Oy Mama Bin Ikh Farlibt
Oy Mame Bin Ikh Farlibt
Oy' Mame, Bin Ich Farlibt
Oy Mame, Bin Ich Forliebt
Oy Mame, Bin Ikh Farlibt
Oy, Mama! Bin Ikh Farlibte
Oy, Mame, Bin Ikh Farlibt

װוען ער צעשפּילט זיך אױף זײַן פֿידל
אַ שײן, האַרציק ײִדיש לידל,
אױ, מאַמע, װערט מיר גוט אָן אַ שיעור.
מיט זײַנע שײנע שװאַרצע אױגן
האָט ער דאַן מיר צוגעצױגן
אױ מאַמע, װױל און גוט איז מיר.

און װען ער זאָגט "הײ דו מײדל
ביסט דאָך אזױ ליב און אײדל",
און זײַן שפּילן קריכט אין האַרצן אַרײַן,
װילט זיך טאַנצן, װילט זיך זינגען
אױ גװאַלד, איך װער צושפּרינגען.
אָן אים, אױ, קען איך ניט מער זײַן.

אױ מאַמע בין איך פֿאַרליבט,
אױ מאַמע בין איך פֿאַרליבט
אַ כּליזמר ײִנגל, מאַמע געטרײַע,
ליגט מיר נאָר אין זין
איך װײן און לאַך און װײס ניט, מאַמע
אױף װעלכער װעלט איך בין.

אױ מאַמע בין איך פֿאַרליבט
אױ מאַמע בין איך פֿאַרליבט,
כ'װאָלט די גאַנצע װעלט אַרומגענומען,
און צוגעדריקט צו זיך,
אױ מאַמע בין איך פֿאַרליבט.

When he plays his fiddle
such a nice Yiddish melody,
Oy, mama, I feel so good inside,
With his beautiful black eyes
he steals my heart,
and I am so happy.

And when he calls to me, "Hey Meyd'l,
so loved and gentle"
and his melody creeps into the heart
I want to dance, I want to sing,
Oy, Gevald, I am exploding!
Without him, mama, I cannot live.

Oy, mama, I'm so in love
Oy, mama, I'm so in love
A musician-boy has my heart
My head is in a spin
I laugh and cry and just don't know
What world I'm living in.

Oy, mama, I'm so in love
When I see his smiling face
The whole world I could embrace!
Oy, mama, I'm so in love.
