GUEST,jane Help: Meaning of 'Donna donna' in Yiddish (63* d) RE: Help: Meaning of 'Donna donna' in Yiddish 21 Mar 02


Did you just want a translation of the title, or tha whole song. I have no idea that the title means, but the lyrics I learned are: On a wagon, bound for market is a calf with a mornful eye High above him there's a swallow winging swiftly through the sky

Stop complaining said the swallow Who told you a calf to be? Why don't you have wings to fly with? Like the swallow so proud and free

Calves are easily bound for slaughter Never knowing the reason why But whoever treasures freedom Like the swallow must learn to fly.
