To our Israeli friends (We are the flowers, the melodies)

Today we keep the Heights

without too many fights.

 

We say thank you to a real friend;

it can be difficult to comprehend.

 

From Poland to Golan;

the Arabs gave us no land.

 

They bought and farmed;

no-one thought they harmed.

 

We are the flowers;

the better melodies.

We The People powers;

the better remedies.

Today we are singing Golan

and not go land.

 

From Rishon LeZion to Shavei Tzion;

they were returnees

from long journeys.

 

They looked and prayed;

and got hooked and stayed.

 

From our roots Abraham and Moses

to all our many ancestors.

We now live together in symbioses

with our brothers and many ‘schwesters’.

 

We are the flowers;

the better melodies.

We The People powers;

the better remedies.

Today we are singing Golan

and not go land.

 

Backed with a mandate, Lapid and Bennett.

The Middle East is having a good Ben-Emet.      *(Son of Truth)

 

We are the flowers;

the better melodies.

We The People powers;

the better remedies.

 

Walking around in golden Jerusalem;

singing like a child, A-Ba-Ni-Bi.

On my cultural shoulders is Metusalem;

singing with my yedidi (ידידי).

 

We are the flowers;

the better melodies.

We The People powers;

the better remedies.

 

Today we are singing Golan

and not go land.

 

Today we are singing Golan

and not go land.

 

Today we are singing Golan

and not go land.
