Catalog#: Stonehill0009
Title: Buziner lebn iz azoy tayer (Buzin Life is Very Dear)       
Transcription: Miriam Isaacs
Translation: Miriam Isaacs

Information: I presume Buzin was a camp or ghetto. Again the singer is orphaned and homeless. (A lager lid)



1) Buziner lebn
iz azoy tayer
vi di faygelekh in vald.

Refrain:
Khotch erst in harts glist zikh tsi vaynen
Zingen mir ot azoy
[Nayn nayn ikh vil nisht ahaym
nor in Buzin veln mir zayn] (2x)

2) Kayn tatn, kayn mamen
kayn shvester kayn brider
elend bin ikh vi a shtayn.

(Refrain)

1) Buzin life
is so dear
Like the birds in the woods.

Refrain:
Though in my heart, I long to cry
Still we sing,
No, no, I do not want to go home
Only in Buzin do I want to be

2) No father, no mother,
No brothers or sisters,
I am alone, like a stone

(Refrain)
