7. Kh'bin Geforn Keyn Benes Ayre

Kh'bin geforn keyn Bines-Ayre (I travelled to Buenos Aires)
mayn lage farbesern, (To better my lot) 
Hob ikh zikh genumen a sheygets, (I hooked up with a scoundrel) 
a latek a gresern (A lowlife of high degree)

Oy, iz mir shlekht (Oy, I've got it bad) 
Shlofn shlof ikh shoyn nisht gantse nekht (I don't sleep whole nights)

Kh'bin geforn keyn Bines-Ayre (I travelled to Buenos Aires)
un arum ale kantn, (And all kinds of other locales) 
Kdey mayn khosn der sheygets (So that my man, the scoundrel)
 zol kenen geyn af zayne hent briliantn (Could wear jewellery on his hands)

Oy, iz mir shlekht (Oy, I've got it bad)
 Shlofn shlof ikh shoyn nisht gantse nekht (I don't sleep whole nights)

Kh'bin geforn keyn Bines-Ayre (I travelled to Buenos Aires)
nokhher nokh Braziln, (Afterwards to Brazil,) 
Kdey mayn khosn der sheygets (So that my man, the scoundrel) 
zol forn in oytomobiln (Could ride in fancy cars)

Oy, iz mir shlekht (Oy, I've got it bad) 
Shlofn shlof ikh shoyn nisht gantse nekht (I don't sleep whole nights)

Kh'hob gekokht fish (I cooked fish) 
in a kiperner fan - (In a copper pan)
A kapore der sheygets (I'm cursed with a scoundrel) 
far mayn idishn man (For a jewish husband)

Oy, iz mir shlekht (Oy, I've got it bad)
 Shlofn shlof ikh shoyn nisht gantse nekht (I don't sleep whole nights)

Kh'hob mir gemakht a matinke (I made a table scarf) 
mit zaydene shpitsn (With silken corners)
 Kh'hob nisht gevolt folgn mayn mamen - (I didn't want to obey my mother -) 
muz ikh zikh plagn in azelkhe hitsn (Now i have to turn tricks in this heat)

Oy, iz mir shlekht (Oy, I've got it bad) 
Shlofn shlof ikh shoyn nisht gantse nekht (I don't sleep whole nights)

J’ai voyagé à Buenos Aires
Pour améliorer mon sort
Je me suis trouvé un sacripant
Un voyou de haut niveau
Oy, j’ai la vie dure
Toute la nuit, je ne dors pas
J’ai voyagé à Buenos Aires
Et toutes sortes de places
Pour que mon homme, le sacripant
Puisse porter des bijoux sur ses mains
Oy, j’ai la vie dure
Toute la nuit, je ne dors pas

J’ai voyagé à Buenos Aires
Ensuite au Brésil
Pour que mon homme, le sacripant
Puisse conduire des voitures de luxe
Oy, j’ai la vie dure
Toute la nuit, je ne dors pas

J’ai fait cuire du poisson
Dans une casserole en cuivre
Je suis aux prises avec un sacripant
Comme mari juif
Oy, j’ai la vie dure
Toute la nuit, je ne dors pas

J’ai fait une écharpe de table
Avec les coins en soie
Je ne voulais pas obéir à ma mère
Maintenant, je dois faire des passes dans cette chaleur
Oy, j’ai la vie dure
Toute la nuit, je ne dors pas

about

Orkestar Kriminal Montreal, Québec

Along with their Yiddish gangster repertoire, Orkestar Kriminal has absorbed the Rebetika Mortika hash den anthems of the 1930s Greek underground. They can also be found performing in Khmer, Spanish, Danish, Romani, Ladino, Russian, Vietnamese, Hebrew or whatever other tongue might attract them. So long as the tune is catchy and a little shady, they'll give it their best shot! ... more
