Song

1.

Hello there strangers and how do you do?
There’s something I’d like to say to you,
You seem surprised, I recognise,
I’m no detective but I just surmised,
You’re from the place that I’m longing to be,
Your smiling faces, they say to me,
You’re from my homeland, my sunny homeland,
Tell me can it be?

chorus:

That you’re from Tzora, from Kibbutz Tzora,
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me,
I’m glad to see you, tell me how be you,
And the friends I’m longing to see,
If you’re from Tel Aviv, Be’er Shevah or Yerushali’im,
Or any place below the Petach Tikvah line,
Are you from Tzora, from Kibbutz Tzora?
‘cos I’m from Tzora too.

2.

It was way back at a quarter to nine,
That I first crossed the Petach Tikvah line,
Oh how I yearned, longed to return.
To all those good old friends I left behind,
My home is down in Mate Yehudah,
On a plantation called Kibbutz Tzora,
There’s one thing certain, I’m surely flirtin’
With those south bound Egged buses.

chorus:

Are you from Tzora, from Kibbutz Tzora?
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me,
I’m glad to see you, tell me how be you,
And the friends I’m longing to see,
If you’re from Tel Aviv, Be’er Shevah or Yerushali’im,
Or any place below the Petach Tikvah line,
Are you from Tzora, from Kibbutz Tzora?
'cos I’m from Tzora,
She’s from Tzora,
We’re from Tzora too.
