[Transliterated intro:]
Sei yonah weh shimini
Bakinor najany...

[Translated intro:]
Listen to me, dove, fly high!
Play your violin

[English lyrics:]
Can I wear your jeans?
Will they ever fit?
Guess I'll just inhale and make the best of it

Sometimes they're too loose
Sometimes they're to tight
Will I tie the noose around my appetite?

Hungry, hungry
To belong, to belong
Hungry

Can I wear your genes?
Guess that's not my choice
I'm walking down the street and singing
In my mother's voice

When you reach this world
Cold and wet and scared
Little do you know
What you'll be forced to wear

When you grow and change
Eyes are open wide
You try in vain to "metamorphasize"

Hungry, hungry
To belong, to belong
Hungry

Hungry, hungry
To belong, to belong
Hungry

[Transliterated Yemenite Hebrew section:]
Sei yonah weh shimini
Bakinor najany
Weh pasachi zamari rani
Beshir hitboney

[Translated Yemenite Hebrew section:]
Listen to me, dove, fly high!
Play your violin
Dance and sing
Contemplate the song

Can I wear your genes?
