Hebrew Children Songs - Rutz ben Susi (רוץ בן סוסי) (English translation)


Rutz ben Susi (רוץ בן סוסי)

רוץ בן סוסי,
רוץ ודהר!
רוץ בביקעה,
טוס בהר!
רוצה, טוסה,
יום וליל -
פרש אני
ובן חיל!

Run my little horse

run my little horse (1)
run swiftly
run through the jordan valley
fly up the hill
she runs, she flies
day and night
I am a knight (2)
And a brave little fella (3)
