BAY MIR BISTU SHEYN

"Bei Mir Bistu Shein" (Yiddish: "To Me You're Beautiful")(The most beautiful in the world) a Yiddish song composed by Jacob Jacobs (lyricist) and Sholom Secunda (composer) for a 1932 Yiddish language comedy musical, I Would If I Could (in Yiddish, Men Ken Lebn Nor Men Lost Nisht, "You could live, but they don't let you"), which closed after one season (at the Parkway Theatre in Brooklyn, New York City). The score for the song transcribed the Yiddish title as "Bay mir bistu sheyn". The original Yiddish version of the song (in C minor) is a dialogue between two lovers.

(As sung by the Barry Sisters and the Budapest Klezmer Band

Kh'vel dir zogn, dir glaykh tzu heren
Auz du zolst mir libe derklern
Ven du redst mit di oygn
Volt ikh mit dir gefloygn vu du vilst
S'art mikh nit
un Ven du host a bisele seykhl
Un ven du vaytzt dayn kindershn shmeykhl
Un Vendu bist vild vi indianer
Bist afile a galitsianer
Zog ikh: dos art mikh nit.

Bay mir bistu sheyn,
Bay mir hos tu heyn,
Bay mir bistu (eyner) der schoeneste oyf der velt.
Bay mir bistu git,
Bay mir hostu "it",
Bay mir bistu tayerer fun gelt.

Fil sheyne meydlekh hobn gevolt nemen mikh,
Un fun zey ale oysgeklibn hob ikh nor dikh.

Bay mir bistu sheyn,
Bay mir hos tu heyn,
Bay mir bistu (eyner) der schoeneste oyf der velt
