BH Help: Meaning of 'Donna donna' in Yiddish (63* d) RE: Help: Meaning of 'Donna donna' in Yiddish 20 Mar 02

There are 2 songs---Donna Donna and also Doyna.

Doyna is a love song having to do with gypsies. Sorry that I cannot understand (translate all the words n the Leo Fuld recording of it.

On the same recording he also does Donna Donna --as do so many others. A beautiful piece---and as is stated in the notes on the Fuld recording that is just a nice and simple story going to market---though I always thought it was more than that
