1. Vi es iz a gratshke

Tu a lokh a groyse
a fleshale, a koyse
Gevald, brider?

1. Where there is a to-do,
we are always there.
Because there razor blades
start pouring out.
Oh, guys, guys, guys
where there are miraculous folks.
We’re all right when we have money.
Make a big hole,
A bottle, some booze.
Hey, brothers
how do we get some money?

2. We ride the trams
And we look for an easy mark.
When we get a sucker,
he “registers."
Oh, guys, guys, guys
where there are miraculous folks.
We’re all right when we have money.
Make a big hole,
A bottle, some booze.
Hey, brothers
how do we get some money?
