Ofra Haza – Jerusalem lyrics

Jerusalem, Jerusalem
Jerusalem, Jerusalem
He was born the King Solomon
He was a wise and had a thousand wives
He was a righteous and feeling judge
He was the king and the father of the people
Jerusalem, Jerusalem
Jerusalem, Jerusalem
Two young women came with a child
Claiming I'm the mother of this child
He said: Bring me a sword,
Divide the baby in two
Oh, in two!
Jerusalem, Jerusalem
Jerusalem, Jerusalem
The real mother cried: Don't!
The other one said: Divide!
Everybody knew who was really true
Jerusalem, Jerusalem
Jerusalem, Jerusalem
How can the people divide a little child ?
How can the people divide such a little heart ?
Jerusalem, Jerusalem
Jerusalem, Jerusalem
