Lyrics
Transliteration from Hebrew to English:

Shechora ani venava
bnot yerushalayim
Ke’ohalei kedar kiriyot shelomo
shechora ani venava.
Al tir’uni she’ani shcharchoret
sheshezafatni hashamesh.
Bnai i’mi, nicharu vi,
Samuni notera et hakeramim.
Karmi sheli, lo natarti

Translation (Song of Songs: chapter 1, verses 5-6):
I am black, but comely,
O ye daughters of Jerusalem
as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.
Look not upon me, because I am black,
because the sun hath looked upon me:
my mother’s children were angry with me,
they made me the keeper of the vineyards;
but mine own vineyard have I not kept.
