As I was ridin' over the far famed Kerry Mountains
כשהלכתי באיזור של הרי קרי הידועים
I met with Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'
מצאתי את קפטן פארל כשהוא סופר ת'כסף
I first produced my pistol and then I drew my sabre
I first produced my pistol and then I drew my sabre
Said "Stand and deliver for I am a bold deceiver"
אמרתי "תביא ת'כסף, למה אני גנב מסוכן! "
Musha ringum durm'da
Musha ringum durm'da
Whack fol the daddy-o
זה בעצם שמחת זקנתי, העיקר
Whack fol the daddy-o
זה בעצם שמחת זקנתי, העיקר
There's whiskey in the jar
יש וויסקי בקנקן
I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
ספרתי ת'כסף, היה לו שם פול בוחטות
I put it in my pocket and I took it home to Jenny
שמתי בכיס והבאתי הבייתה לג'ני
She said and she swore that she never would betray me
היא אמרה והיא נשבעה שהיא לעולם לא תבגוד בי
The devil take the women for they never can be easy
אבל הרוע אכל ת'אישה, למה דברים אף לא קלים
Musha ringum durm'da
Musha ringum durm'da
Whack fol the daddy-o
זה בעצם שמחת זקנתי, העיקר
Whack fol the daddy-o
זה בעצם שמחת זקנתי, העיקר
There's whiskey in the jar
יש וויסקי בקנקן
I went up to my chamber all for to take a slumber
I went up to my chamber all for to take a slumber
I dreamt of gold and jewels, boys, and sure it was no wonder
חלמתי על זהב יהלומים , בחורים, ובטח זה לא היה פלא
But Jenny took my charges and she filled them up with water
But Jenny took my charges and she filled them up with water
Then sent for Captain Farrell to be ready for the slaughter
אז היא שלחה לקפטן פארל שיהיה מוכן לטבח
Musha ringum durm'da
Musha ringum durm'da
Whack fol the daddy-o
זה בעצם שמחת זקנתי, העיקר
Whack fol the daddy-o
זה בעצם שמחת זקנתי, העיקר
There's whiskey in the jar
יש וויסקי בקנקן
Next day just as I was leavin', was early in the mornin'
יום אחר כך, בדיוק כשעזבתי, מוקדם בבוקר
The captain and his soldiers came at me without warnin'
The captain and his soldiers came at me without warnin'
I then produced my pistol, she stole away my sabre
I then produced my pistol, she stole away my sabre

Whack fol the daddy-oThe Irish Rovers

I couldn't shoot the water so a prisoner I was taken
I couldn't shoot the water so a prisoner I was taken
Musha ringum durm'da
Musha ringum durm'da
Whack fol the daddy-o
זה בעצם שמחת זקנתי, העיקר
Whack fol the daddy-o
זה בעצם שמחת זקנתי, העיקר
There's whiskey in the jar
יש וויסקי בקנקן
I'd like to find my brother, he's the one that's in the army
הייתי רוצה למצוא את אחי, הוא האחד שמשרת בצבא
I don't know where he's stationed, is it Cork or in Killarney?
I don't know where he's stationed, is it Cork or in Killarney?
Together we'll go ridin' o'er the mountains of Kilkenny
ביחד נרכב על סוסים על הרי קילקני
Oh, I know he'll treat me better than my darlin' sportin' Jenny
Oh, I know he'll treat me better than my darlin' sportin' Jenny
Musha ringum durm'da
Musha ringum durm'da
Whack fol the daddy-o

זה בעצם שמחת זקנתי, העיקר
Whack fol the daddy-o
זה בעצם שמחת זקנתי, העיקר
There's whiskey in the jar
יש וויסקי בקנקן
There's some delight in fishin' and some delight in bowlin'
יש משהו כיף בלדוג דגים, ויש משהו כיף בלשחק באולינג
And some take delight in their carriages a-rollin'
And some take delight in their carriages a-rollin'
But I take delight in the juice of the barley
But I take delight in the juice of the barley
And courtin' pretty girls in the mornin' bright and early
And courtin' pretty girls in the mornin' bright and early
Musha ringum durm'da
Musha ringum durm'da
Whack fol the daddy-o

Whack fol the daddy-o
זה בעצם שמחת זקנתי, העיקר
There's whiskey in the jar
יש וויסקי בקנקן
