Rozhinkes Mit Mandlen (Eastern Europe)
From the singing of Ruth Rubin and Olga Weinstock.

Unter Yankele’s vigele
Shteyt a klorays tsigele.
Dos tsigele iz geforn handlen
Rozhinkes mit mandlen.
Dos iz di beste s’khoyre,
Yankele vet lernen Toyre.
Toyre vet er lernen,
S’forim vet er shraybn.
A guter un a frumer
Vet Yankele farblaybn.
Rozhinkes mit mandlen iz zeyer zis.
Mayn kind vet zany gezunt un frish.
