LISTEN: Tzena, Tzena, Tzena


"Tzena, Tzena, Tzena" is a song, originally written in Hebrew by Issachar Miron (a.k.a. Stefan Michrovsky), a Polish emigrant to what was then The British Mandate of Palestine but is now Israel, and Jehiel Hagges (Yechiel Chagiz).

Hebrew transliteration:
Tzena, tzena, tzena, tzena ha-banot u-r’ena ħayalim ba-mosheva
Al na, Al na, Al na, Al na, al na titħabena Mi ben ħayil, ish tzava

English Translation:
Go out, go out, go out girls and see soldiers in the moshava (farming community).
Do not, do not, do not hide yourself away from a virtuous man [a pun on the word for "soldier"], an army man.
