Harshl iz geven eyner fun di groyse, Vu er iz gekumen, hot er geheysn shteln a koyse, Haynt geyt Harshl aropgelozt di noz, Er hot gekrign leyges, veyst er nisht far vos. Harshl, vu geystu? Harshl, vu shteystu? Harshl, vu bistu mit dayne grobe hent? Du host shoyn nisht keyn hent, Du host shoyn nisht keyn vent, Du vest shoyn nisht nemen oyf shventoyerske keyn protsent. Harshl iz geven der shenster fun zey ale, Iz gekumen Meyer-Tshompl, un hot im tsugenumen di kale; Haynt geyt Harshl aropgelozt di noz, Er hot gekrign leyges, veyst er nisht far vos. Harshl, vu geystu... Harshl hot geshpilt orde-borde-shorde, Iz gekumen Yoyne-Mekhl, im ongehakt di morde; Haynt geyt Harshl aropgelozt di noz, Er hot gekrign leyges, veyst er nisht far vos. Harshl, vu geystu...

Harshl was one of the big shots Wherever he went, he'd order drinks for everyone Today Harshl walks around looking down in the mouth he was beaten up he doesn't know why Harshl, where are you going? Harshl, where are you standing? Harshl, where are you with your plain hands? you have no more hands you have no more territory you won't be taking a percentage on Szwientojerska street Harshl was the handsomest of them all Meyer-Tshompl came along and took away his bride Today Harshl walks around looking down in the mouth he was beaten up he doesn't know why Harshl, where are you going... Harshl was playing tic-tac-toe Yoyne-Mekhl came and broke his jaw Today Harshl walks around looking down in the mouth he was beaten up he doesn't know why Harshl, where are you going...
