Lyrics of the original folksong (English translation follows)
Oyfn yam ve'et a vintele ve'et a vintele
un di khvalyes shlogn un di khvalyes shlogn
Khob zikh farlibt in a sheen yingele
khob nit farvemen tzu zogn
Ikh hob zikh g'boyt a shtibele g'boyt a shtibele
arum un arum mit fenster arum un arum mit fenster
Fun d'ale kartinkes vos ikh hob g'senn
bist du bay mir der sheenster

On the sea the wind is blowing
and the waves are breaking
I'm in love with a handsome youth
But I'm too shy to say anything
I have build a little house
with windows all around
Of all the pictures I have seen
You are the most beautiful in my home.
