Bei mir bist du schoen

me, playing two instruments step by step, using the multitrack pocket recorder BOSS MICRO BR-80 – who wants to join?

Bei Mir Bistu Shein” (Yiddish: בײַ מיר ביסטו שיין, “To Me You’re Beautiful”) is a popular Yiddish song composed by Jacob Jacobs (lyricist) and Sholom Secunda (composer) for a 1932 Yiddish comedy musical…
“Bei Mir Bist Du Schön, please let me explain,
Bei Mir Bist Du Schön means that you’re grand.

Bei Mir Bist Du Schön, again I’ll explain,
It means that you’re the fairest in the land.

I could say ‘Bella, bella,’ even say ‘Wunderbar’
Each language only helps me tell you how
grand you are.

I’ve tried to explain ‘Bei Mir Bist Du Schön’
So kiss me and say you understand.

Bei mir bist du schön, you’ve heard it all before
But let me try to explain “Bei mir bist du schön”
means that you’re grand

Bei mir bist du schön, it’s such an old refrain
and yet I should explainIt means I am
begging for your hand

I could say “Bella, bella”, even say “Wunderbar”
Each language only helps me tell you how
grand you are…”
