Re: An Old Song - Possibly Russian, possibly Yiddish #general

Kalman Appel

This is a song from (I think) modern Israel's earliest agricultural settlement days (maybe 1880's?) Composer and lyricist are unknown.  The words are Hebrew. The words mean, "Wake up lazy boy, and go out to work.  Get up, Get up and go to work.  The rooster has already crowed ' Kukuriku kukuriku'.
You can hear it sung by going to this URL
If you don't read Hebrew, click on the button to the left of the black bar.  The words are shown in Hebrew but if you press the "Latin" button you will get a transliteration of the lyrics.
Have fun!
