Once upon a time in a country we all know
The sirens started wailing to the shelters we all go

Once upon a time in a country full of pride
The sirens started wailing and we all had to hide

Once upon a time in a country full of Jews
The sirens started wailing and we all watched the news

Once upon a time in a country full of mothers
The sirens started wailing and we all became true brothers

Once upon a time in a country full of sons
The sirens started wailing and we cried for every one

Once upon a time in a country full of hope
The sirens started wailing and we all tried to cope

Once upon a time in a country full of love
The sirens started wailing and we prayed to G-d above

Once upon a time in the country that’s our home
The children asked their parents, why do we stand alone?
