Katan Aleinu

[Verse 1:]
Erets shel shemesh,
Al hayam hatichon,
Hagalim po lo shketim ze omer hamon,
 
Mehachol shel hanegev,
Ve'ad hachermon,
Bait cham, u'vo kulam omrim shalom,
 
[Bridge:]
Mul kol mich'shol vechol chida,
Od tikvateinu lo avda,
Ma yolid yom zot lo neda,
Ve'al hakol nomar toda.
 
[Chorus:]
Kmo shehaya, kacha ihiye,
Avarnu hakol, na'avor gam et ze,
Lo yiplu paneinu,
Ze katan aleinu.
 
[Verse 2:]
Kaffe bamirpeset, reichot shel shabbat,
Ech kulanu po otto davar kim'at.
Lishmor al hadegel, od pa'am achat,
Kama od efshar hazman over le'at.
 
[Bridge:]
Mul kol mich'shol vechol chida,
Od tikvateinu lo avda,
Ma yolid yom zot lo neda,
Ve'al hakol nomar toda.
 
[Chorus:]
Kmo shehaya, kacha ihiye,
Avarnu hakol, na'avor gam et ze,
Lo yiplu paneinu,
Ze katan aleinu.
 
[Rap verse:]
Ze katan aleinu hatsara hee minimalit,
Am echad, kulam me'urbavim kmo chimikalim,
Ovdim mishmone ad chamesh aval cholmim dolarim,
Sof shavua memal'im moadonim vepabim,
 
Ay, ze lo chalom o bdicha,
Ay, yesh lanu gav mishpacha
Ay, yachad itti ve'itcha,
Ay, kulam yinshemu lirvacha.
 
Yesh lanu lev vegam yesh lanu sechel vekoach ratson vetipa shel mazal,
Kulanu esh, ein lanu pachad,
Kacha batuach ihiye lanu kal.
 
[Chorus:]
Kmo shehaya, kacha ihiye,
Avarnu hakol, na'avor gam et ze,
Lo yiplu paneinu,
Ze katan aleinu.

FYI regarding pronouns and sexuality in my translations:

I always take the gender of the singer/writer into account, and I mostly assume the singer/writer is heterosexual, unless otherwise specified.
