La Kapara—Music and lyrics by Flory Jagoda

Il nono mos yama Grandfather calls us
A las sinko de la manyana At five in the morning;
Il gayo sta gritando The rooster is shrieking,
A todos despertando. Waking everyone!
Desha me a dormir Let me sleep,
No me kero alvantar I don’t want to get up!
Desha me a dormir Let me sleep;
Il Dio mi va perdonar. God will forgive me.
Ermozas ijikas Beautiful young girls
Fazieron las burikitas Made the filled pastries;
Todos las stan komiendo Everybody is eating them,
Il raki ya stan biviendo. And drinking slivovitz!
Desha me a dormir… Let me sleep…
