Give a shoulder...close your eyes - Happy Purim!!

Traditional Israeli Purim song: Ten Katef

תֵּן כָּתֵף, עֲצֹם אֶת הָעֵינַיִם,
פּוּרִים לָנוּ נִשְׁכַּח אֶת הַכֹּל.
יֵשׁ לְךָ כְּאֵב, רָמְסֶהוּ בָּרַגְלַיִם,
פְּתַח אֶת פִּיךָ וְשִׁירָה בְּקוֹל:

אָהָא! אָהָא! כֻּלָּנוּ נִשְׁתַּגֵּעַ
נִרְאֶה, נִחְיֶה, עַל אַף כָּל הַתְּלָאוֹת.
אָהָא! אָהָא! חֶפְצֵנוּ נְבַצֵּעַ
נִחְיֶה, נִרְאֶה נִסִּים וְנִפְלָאוֹת.

Give a shoulder, close your eyes
Purim is upon us, we'll forget it all
You have pain? Stomp on it with your feet
Open your mouth and sing out loud!

Hey hey! Hey hey! We'll all go crazy
We'll see, we'll live, despite all the troubles
Hey hey! Hey hey! We'll make our dreams come true
We'll live, we'll see, miracles and wonders

Happy Purim everyone!

Is the song in the music video the same one you gave the lyrics to up there? It's cool! ^^

I was just thinking about Purim while were on vacation. And apparently it was celebrated while we were gone. That's wild.
