i had some free time after i had completed my test

and dont ask me why she is wearing gum boots.. she just is..

so i walk out of the examination hall and i run into yeth.. showed him and a couple of other friends the above varah fonivefa [hithun].. and he informs me that hava nagila is a jewish song. a jewish RELIGIOUS song! and theres more!

[waait for it]

[waait for it]

HAVA NAGILA IS A JEWISH GOD!

*faint*

u cannot imagine the shock i got.. hava nagila is one of my all time favourites.. i cannot remember a time where i didnt know the stupid song! aaah.. the happy hours singing it.. dancing to it.. laughin to it..

so naturally i checked it out on wikipedia.

"Hava Nagila (הבא נגילה in hebrew) is a Hebrew folk song, the title meaning "Let us rejoice." It is a song of celebration, especially popular amongst irreligious Jewish and Roma communities. In popular culture, it is used as a metonym for Judaism, and is a staple of band performers at Jewish festivals.
Though the melody is an ancient one of folk origin, the commonly used text was probably composed in 1918 to celebrate the
British victory in Palestine during World War I as well as the Balfour Declaration."

*phew*

pity though, coz i always thought hava nagila to be a woman's name..

anyway here are the lyrics and the meanin to it.

enjoy!


Hava nagila
הבה נגילה
Let's rejoice


Hava nagila
הבה נגילה
Let's rejoice


Hava nagila venis'mecha
הבה נגילה ונשמחה
Let's rejoice and be happy

(repeat stanza once)

Hava neranenah
הבה נרננה
Let's sing


Hava neranenah
הבה נרננה
Let's sing


Hava neranenah venis'mecha
הבה נרננה ונשמחה
Let's sing and be happy

(repeat stanza once)

Uru, uru achim!
!עורו, עורו אחים
Awake, awake, brothers!


Uru achim b'lev sameach
עורו אחים בלב שמח
Awake brothers with a happy heart

(repeat line three times)

Uru achim, uru achim!
!עורו אחים, עורו אחים
Awake, brothers, awake, brothers!


B'lev sameach
בלב שמח
With a happy heart

    Eh? Hava who? Looks like a gypsy bitch to me.

    But then again, its not really a Jewish folk song, is it? It's just Hebrew. That's like saying that every Arab's a Muslim?
    I don't know--just thinking aloud.
