Unter Yankeles vigele
shteyt a vaysinke tsigele.
(Di) tsigele iz geforn handlen
Rozhinkes mit mandlen
S'iz di beste skheyre,
Yankele vet lernen Teyre
Teyre vet er lernen,
Sforim vet er shraybn
Un a guter un a frumer
Vet er tomid blaybn. (x2)
Mazl dir afulinke.

Unter Soreles vigele
Eykhet shteyt a tsigele
Di tsigele iz geforn handlen
Rozhinkes mit mandlen
Vestu zayn di shenste kale,
Zolstu shener zayn fun ale,
Mazl dir afulinke.

Unter tsvey kinderlakhs vigele
shteyt a vaysinke tsigele,
oy, tsigele iz geforn handlen
rozhinkes mit mandlen.
