CHAD GADYA, CHAD GADYA
dizabin aba bitrei zuzei,
chad gadya, chad gadya.
Va'ata shunra,
ve'achla legadya
dizabin aba bitrei zuzei,
chad gadya, chad gadya.

An only kid! An only kid
My father bought for two zuzim
Chad gadya, Chad gadya

Then came the cat and ate the kid
My father bought For two zuzim
Chad gadya, Chad gadya

Then came the dog And bit the cat
That ate the kid
My father bought For two zuzim
Chad gadya, Chad gadya

Then came the stick and beat the dog
That bit the cat that ate the kid
My father bought for two zuzim
Chad gadya, Chad gadya

Then came the fire and burned the stick
That beat the dog That bit the cat
That ate the kid
My father bought for two zuzim
Chad gadya, Chad gadya

Then came the water and quenched the fire
That burned the stick That beat the dog
That bit the cat that ate the kid
My father bought for two zuzim
Chad gadya, Chad gadya

Then came the ox and drank the water
That quenched the fire that burned the stick
That beat the dog that bit the cat
That ate the kid
My father bought for two zuzim
Chad gadya, Chad gadya

Then came the butcher and killed the ox
Then came the ox and drank the water
That quenched the fire that burned the stick
That beat the dog that bit the cat
That ate the kid
My father bought for two zuzim
Chad gadya, Chad gadya

Then came the angel of death and slew the butcher
Then came the butcher and killed the ox
Then came the ox and drank the water
That quenched the fire that burned the stick
That beat the dog that bit the cat
That ate the kid
My father bought for two zuzim
Chad gadya, Chad gadya

Then came the Holy One, blest be He!
And destroyed the angel of death
Then came the angel of death and slew the butcher
Then came the butcher and killed the ox
Then came the ox and drank the water
That quenched the fire that burned the stick
That beat the dog that bit the cat
That ate the kid
My father bought for two zuzim
Chad gadya, Chad gadya
