English Translation Of GELT- Track 5 Of Lipa B'derech

[Lipa Enters]

A Yid: Tell me, you're coming for money? Lipa: Do i owe you money? Ah, now again money nuu (all everybody talks about is money).

Poor, rich - strong and weak,
It's all about the same thing,
Whoever has enough of it has everyone close to him,
Relatives today - tomorrow enemies,
The day after tomorrow friends again,
If you earn Lira (Italy), Frank (France), Shekel (Israel), Dollar, Pound (Great Britain),

We plow, plant - we borrow, we lend,
We put in, we squeeze and twist (negotiate),
Everybody has the same goal to earn money easily,
We're flying in the way (a hustle and bustle) - weeks and days,
After the money such a going (everyone's going after it),
Another Dollar, Frank, and Pound,
It can even be a Shekel,

Trying to be powerful - his word everyone likes,
Whoever has the hundred has the say,
When it comes to money,
A poor house - puts on a rich face,
Every character for himself he's talented,
When it comes to money,

Instead of worrying - find where to borrow,
When it comes to paying - Where's the money(Kesef M'nalan),
The checks bounce - You run to Gemachs (loan funds),
There is no guarantor/co-signer - he looks for a relative,
From everywhere (he's looking) - who pays until then,
(Oh) How long the year is - I am in trouble,
I disconnect my phone - and knock it down,
Can't pay - Where's the money (gonna come from),

In Shul we collect money,
In the street we talk about money,
I come home - what do they like,
They're begging again for money,
Honor comes with money - wisdom comes with money,
There is a joke - A hater of money (which is one of the requirements to be a Jewish judge so as not to be biased by money),
You can hire today for (enough) money,

The heart is ripped apart (from aggravation) - the partner is pressuring,
From money there becomes such a conflict,
From every cause (a cause, to give money to) he runs away,
Like from a detrimental situation,
The business is booming - he doesn't get tired,
The more he has his head is flying,
Like it says: A increase in property also increases worry (this is stated in Pirkei Avos),

Poor, rich - strong and weak,
It's all about the same thing,
Whoever has enough of it has everyone close to him,
Relatives today - tomorrow enemies,
The day after tomorrow friends again,
If you earn Lira, Frank, Shekel, Dollar, Pounds,

Life goes by fast,
Only worries come from money,
Life costs - as much as you have,
For everything you need more and more money,
What do we have from the money - from Gashmius (physicality) we indulge,
It looks good - you don't take it with you (to the next world),
Nothing is left from money,

You over exert yourself - you over work yourself,
For all kinds (of things) - you don't need necessarily need the green (money),
The younger years - to save money,
He's already old - still he's hiding money,
Bitter - his hand is already shaking,
He is hardly in his right mind - the money will not run away,
It will stay by him (even in such a situation he makes sure to hold onto the money) - He writes checks,
An old nervous (one) - he's stingy to spend,

In Shul we collect money,
In the street we talk about money,
I come home - what do they like,
They're begging again for more money,
Honor comes with money, money, - wisdom comes with money,
It looks good - You don't take it with you (to the next world),
Nothing is left from money,

A little Kosher money - with Mitzvahs in the world,
It looks good - This we do take along,
It stays in the other world,
Everybody likes it,
When you do good with the money,

I'm asking you,
Nu, tell me already,
Where can I get a few dollars?
Huh? Let go already of the money!
