The Song of a Clean Nation

Lyrics: Ehud Manor

Music: Matti Caspi

Friday evening

from five till six

and almost everyone

is renewed once again.

On all seven days

the showers sang,

the waters are once again hot in the pipes.

Chorus:

A part in the middle, a part on the side,

everyone is showered.

What cleanliness and order

what a beautiful parade.

Water and soap,

The electricity meter rushes

and no calculations are made

concerning the bill.

Faces perfumed,

A nice Shabbat shirt

and a pair of underclothes

to change.

 

A part in the middle, a part on the side...

A dreamy moment

for body and soul,

Everyone says, "Shalom"

and "How are you"?

Even a creaky body,

suddenly feels refreshed,

And everyone whistles

the song of a clean nation.

 

A part in the middle, a part on the side...
