Bo'u Ananim

This song was recommended to me by parents who grew up in Israel. It's a really well-constructed poem with an interesting, minor tune.




בואו עננים

הבו גשם לגנים

טיף, טיף, טיפותי

גשם גשם לשדותי

לשיבולת לאילן

ולפרח הקטן

שבגן

Latinized Hebrew:
 
Bo'u ananim
Havu geshem la-ganim
Tif, tif, tipot-ai
Geshem, geshem li-sdotai
La-shibolet, la-ilan
Ve la-perach ha-katan
she-ba-gan
English translation:

Come clouds
Bring rain to the gardens
Drip drip drops of mine
Rain, rain for my fields
To the crops, to the tree
And to the little flower
In the garden
