Notes

Here's another version of this song (which seems to be better known than the version above):

Meachorei ha-ya'ar
Hebrew Transliteration

Meachorei ha-ya'ar
achat, shtaim, shalosh
sham yashvu shlosha gmadim
achat, shtaim, shalosh
lo achlu ve-lo shatu
achat, shtaim, shalosh
rak yashvu ve-pitpetu
achat, shtaim, shalosh

In the Forest
English Translation

In the forest
One, Two, Three,
There sat three elves
One, Two, Three,
They weren't eating, they weren't drinking,
One, Two, Three,
They only sat and chattered,
One, Two, Three.

Here's the Hebrew text of In the Forest...

מאחוריי היער

מאחוריי היער 123
שם ישבו שלושה גמדים 123
לא אכלו ולא שתו 123
רק ישבו ופיטפטו 123
