    Sambalele (Brazil) 

    Sambalele cannot dance, no. He threw a stone at a man-go.

    Stone fell back down on his own head. Sambalele’s in his own bed!

     

    Samba, samba, sambalele. Samba, samba, samba la-la.

    Samba, samba, sambalele. Pisa na barra da saia o la-la. (repeat)

     

    Sambalele took a fall, now. He made some stilts to be tall, now.

    He took a tumble on his head. Sambalele’s back in his bed!

     

     

     

    Hi! Ho! The Rattlin' Bog (Ireland)

    Hi! Ho! The rattlin' bog

    and the bog down in the valley-o

    Hi! Ho! The rattlin' bog

    and the bog down in the valley-o

     

    Now in this bog there was a tree (limb, branch, nest, egg, bird)

    A rare tree a rattlin' tree

    The tree in the bog

    And the bog down in the valley-o

     

     ............Songs from previous years.............

     

    Zum Gali Gali (Israel)

     Zum gali gali gali

    Zum gali gali

    Zum gali gali gali

    Zum gali gali

     

    Hechalutz le ‘man avodah

    Avodah le ‘man hechalutz

    Avodah le ‘man hechalutz

    Hechalutz le ‘man avodah.

     

    We are building, building a land

    Out of rock and dessert and sand

    Men and women labor in pride

    We are working side by side

     

    La raspa (Mexico)

     La raspa yo bailé 

    Al derecho y al revés 

    Si quieres tu bailar

    Empieza a mover los pies

    Brinca, brinca, brinca también 

    Mueve, mueve mucho los pies

    Que la raspa vas a bailar

    Al derecho y al revés

     

    That's Amore (Italy)

    When the moon hits you eye like a big pizza pie
    That's amore
    When the world seems to shine and your feeling just fine
    That's amore
    Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
    And you'll sing "Vita bella"
    Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
    Like a gay tarantella
    When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool
    That's amore
    When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
    You're in love
    When you walk down in a dream but you know you're not
    Dreaming signore
    Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli
    That's amore
    (That’s amore, that’s amore)
