Israeli Folk Song "The Little Goat"
Performed by Chava Alberstein

An Israeli folk song lamenting the hopeless situation, and the endless hatred, between all the groups in the Middle East.

My father bought it, For just two coins
The lamb! The lamb!

My father bought it, For just two coins
As the Haggadah relates
Along came the cat, And ate up the lamb
The dog choked the cat, That ate the lamb
That my father bought, For just two coins
The lamb! The lamb!

Along came the stick
To beat the dog, That choked the cat
That ate the lamb, That my father bought
That he bought, For just two coins
The lamb! The lamb!

Then came a fire, And burnt the stick
That beat the dog, That choked the cat
That ate the lamb, That my father bought
For just two coins
The lamb! The lamb!

Then water came, And quenched the fire
That burnt the stick, That beat the dog
That choked the cat, That ate the lamb
That my father bought, For just two coins
The lamb! The lamb!

Then came an ox and drank the water
That quenched the fire
That burnt the stick, That beat the dog
That choked the cat, That ate the lamb
That my father bought, For just two coins
The lamb! The lamb!

Along came a butcher
And killed the ox that drank the water
That quenched the fire
That burnt the stick, That beat the dog
That choked the cat, That ate the lamb
That my father bought, For just two coins
The lamb! The lamb!

Then came the Angel of Death, And slew the butcher
Who killed the ox, That drank the water
That quenched the fire
That burnt the stick, That beat the dog
That choked the cat, That ate the lamb
That my father bought, For just two coins
The lamb! The lamb!

Why do you sing, little lamb?
Spring isn't yet here, And Passover neither
Have you changed?
I have changed this year
Every evening, Like each evening
I have only asked four questions
But, tonight, I have thought of another question

How long will this circle of horror last?
Tonight, I have thought of another question
How long will this circle of horror last?
Of persecutor and persecuted
Of executioner and victim
When will this madness end?
What has changed this year?

This year, I have changed
I was a meek lamb
I have become a tiger and a wild wolf
I was a dove, a gazelle
Today, I don't know who I am
My father bought it, For just two coins
The lamb! The lamb!
Our father bought it, For just two coins
And everything is starting again
