Yehuda Poliker's Lyrics

Good Night, Go To Sleep (Lailah Tov, L'chi l'shon)

Words: Yehudah Amichai
Music: Yehuda Poliker
From: Hurts but Less
Translated by Larry Yudelson
    Good night, go to sleep
    I won't be by you first
    Guard your eyes because we won't know
    If God will take care of it for you

    An engine runs all night in the yard
    But it won't turn me into another man
    Nothing below me and nothing above me
    The heavens are my throne and the earth my footstool

    No God and no woman
    Lying alone on a hard bed
    Not last and not first
    Good night go to sleep
