Subject: RE: fifties popsongs that started as folk
We seem unaccountably to have overlooked the Israeli song Tsenah Tsenah, on which a whole thread ran not that long since, which hit our charts with anglicised lyrics.

Tsenah hab'not u-renah
Hayalim bemoshavah
Al-nah tit-habenah
Mi ben-hayyal, ish tsevah

Come out girls and see
The soldiers in the village.
Do not hide yourselves away
From that brave man of the army man
