Dos kelbl (Dona Dona)

{Dona, dona, dona, dona,
Dona, dona, dona, do,
Dona, dona, dona, dona,
Dona, dona, dona, do}
 
Oyfn furl ligt dos kelbl
Ligt gebundn mit a shtrik
Hoykh in himl flit dos shvelbl
Freydt zikh, dreyt zikh hin un krik.
 
Chorus
 
Lakht der vint in korn
Lakht un lakht un lakht
Lakht er op a tog a gantsn
mit a halber nakht.
 
Hey Dona, dona, dona...
 
Shrayt dos kelbl, zogt der poyer
"Ver zhe heyst dikh zayn a kalb?
Volst gekert tsu zayn a foygl
Volst gekert tsu zayn a shvalb?"
 
Chorus
Lakht der vint in korn.....................
 
Bidne kelber tut men bindn
Un men shlept zey un men shekht
ver s'hot fligl, flit aroyf tzu
iz bay keynem nit keyn knekht
 
Chorus
Lakht der vint in korn.......

Does anybody have an English translation as opposed to the English version lyrics for this song?
