Lyrics: Yaacov Orland
Music: Mordechai Zeira
English translation:
I will sing you an ancient song,
I will sing you a hymn about a rose
Once upon a time there were
two roses, two roses.

It was long ago that day,
one was white, the other red.

Children of one garden, like two brothers,
they grew leaves, grew thorns.
When the morning came, clear and bright
the white opened its eyes,
and evening came and the day went down
the red one closed its eyes.

And in the nights, in the nights
winds blew in them lightly.
How they blossomed until a hand came
a hand that picked one rose,
and it isn’t known until today –
the white or the red.

All that’s known’s that the remaining one
its heart is broken, its heart is broken.
Once upon a time there were
two roses, two roses.
It was long ago that day,
one was white, the other red.
