[Hebrew lyrics transliterated:]
El ha mayaan
Ba gdi, ba gdi katan
El ha mayaan
Ba gdi katan
Ha shalom lo
Le levan be betuel?
A leh Rachel?

[Hebrew lyrics translated:]
To the well
Came a lamb, a little lamb
I asked him "Is peace upon Lavan Ben Betuel?"
And what of Rachel?"

[Actual lyrics as sung:]

El ha mayaan

One little lamb, little came down to the water
One little lamb, little came down to the water
Little lamb went down to the water
One little lamb, little came down to the water
Little lamb went down to the water
One little lamb, little lamb went down
Little lamb went down, went down to the water

El ha mayaan
Little lamb went down
Ba gdi, ba gdi katan
Hey, the lamb went down
El ha mayaan
Hey, the lamb went down
Ba gdi katan
The lamb went down

El ha mayaan
Ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi katan, katan...an (El ha mayaan)
El ha mayaan, el ha mayaan
Ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi katan (El ha mayaan)
Little lamb went down

Ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi katan
Ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi katan

Ha shalom lo (El ha mayaan)
Le Levan ben Betuel? (El ha mayaan)
Water... (El ha mayaan)
Ha shalom lo (El ha mayaan)
Water... (One little lamb went down)
A leh Rachel? (Little lamb went down)

One little lamb, little lamb came down to the water
I asked him about my friend Jacob
Wanted to know how things are going
Is that love still showing?
Is that love still growing?
Is that love still growing?
Is it going strong?

One little lamb came down to the water (water, to the water)
One little lamb came down to the water (water, down to the water)
One little lamb came down to the water (water, down to the water)
One little lamb came down to the water (water, down to the water)

One little lamb came down to the water
Little lamb, little lamb came
One little lamb came down to the water
Little lamb, little lamb came to the water
I met the little lamb
Ask him how's it going down there
I met the little lamb
Asked him how's it going down there

El ha mayaan
Oh I said to the lamb
Ba gdi, ba gdi, katan
Do you know, I said to the lamb
Do you know about Jacob?
Is he well that guy?
Is he well that guy?
I never seen anyone like Yakob

Ba gdi, ba gdi
Ba gdi katan

Little lamb went down
Little lamb went down
He was in front to work 14 years for love, love, love
Oh.. yeah

One little lamb went down to the water (little lamb, little lamb went down)
One little lamb went down to the water (little lamb, little lamb went down)

14 years hard labor
Just to win the lady's favor
14 years hard labor
Just to win the lady's favor
How would do that nowadays?
I mean, no one, oh no
14 minutes, then zap!
You babe? Un uh

Ha shalom lo
Water... (El ha mayaan)
Le Levan ben Betuel?
Ha shalom lo
Water... (One little lamb went down)
A leh Rachel? (Little lamb went down)

Ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi katan
Ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi katan
Water...
Ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi katan
Water...
Ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi katan

One little lamb,
Little lamb came down
Little lamb came down to the water
And I said
Hey, little lamb, tell me
How's it going?
Is it going good down there?
Do the still care for each other
Like a sister and a brother
Like real lovers?

Tell me, little lamb
Is real love a reality?
You tell me little lamb
Tell me it is
Tell me it is
You're my only chance to believe in love

Ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi katan
Ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi katan
Ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi katan
Ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi, ba gdi katan...

One little lamb, little lamb came down to the water
One little lamb, little lamb came down to the water
Hey the lamb went down
Hey the lamb went down
Hey the lamb went down
