Bashana Haba'a / Next Year (In the Coming Year) / 光明的人生

Written By Ehud Manor & Nurit Hirsch

Translation

Bashana haba'a, neshev al hamirpeset

venispor tziporim nodedot.

Yeladim, bekhoufsha, yesakhakhu tofeset

beyn habayit, oulebeyn hasadot.

 

Od tire, od tire,

kama tov yihye,

bashana, bashana haba'a

 

Anavim adumim, yavshilu ad ha'erev

veyugshu tzonenim lashulkhan.

Verukhot redumim, yis'u el em haderekh

itonim yeshanim ve'anan.

 

Od tire, od tire,

kama tov yihye,

bashana, bashana haba'a

 

Bashana haba'a, nifros kapot yadayim,

mul ha'or hanigar halavan.

Anafa levana, tifros ba'or knafayim

vehashemesh tizrakh betokhan.

 

Od tire, od tire,

kama tov yihye,

bashana, bashana haba'a

 

Next year we will sit on the porch
and count all the individual birds
Children on vacation will play ball
between the house and the fields

 

You will see, you will see
just how good it will be
next year, the next year

 

Red grapes will ripen by the evening
------- to the table
(don't quite understand)

 

You will see, you will see
just how good it will be
next year, the next year

 

Next year we will spread our hands
to the white light
A white egret wing will catch the white light
and will (fly to the sun?)

 

You will see, you will see
just how good it will be
next year, the next year
