Mordkhe Gebirtig is credited with writing this song, which was folklorized soon after it was written. In the 2nd half of the song, you can substitute the accented word (Shabes, kinder, sholem) with virtually any other concept that one values (“tate”– daddy, “mame” – mommy, “sholem” – peace, or “yontef” – holiday).
