YA BA YE

Ya Bi Na Ya!...
Tell me why
Tell me why
Ya bi na ya
Tell me why
Tell me why you run?

My mother always told me
Ya bin ti
Don't forget
Mim fain in-ti
Remember who you are
Listen to the voice
That plays in your head
Make the right choice
Tell me why - Tell me why
Ya bi na ya
Tell me why - Tell me why
You run?!

My mother says my mother says:
Ya ba ye ya ba ye
My mother says my mother says:
Ya ba ya ba ye
My mother says my mother says:
Ya ba ye ya ba ye
My mother says my mother says:
Ya ba ya ba ye
Tell me why - Tell me why
Ya bi na ya
Tell me why - Tell me why
You run?!...

I had to see it my way
'Cause life is very short
The more I try to learn
The less I seem to know
Oh, I cry in bed
Yea, I miss my home
The home I can't forget
I hear my mother's voice
Tell me why - Tell me why
Ya bi na ya
Tell me why - Tell me why
You cry?!...

My mother says my mother says:
Ya ba ye ya ba ye
My mother says my mother says:
Ya ba ya ba ye
My mother says my mother says:
Ya ba ye ya ba ye
My mother says my mother says:
Ya ba ya ba ye
Don't run away
Ya ba ya ba ye
Ya bi na ya
Ya bi na ya
Tell me why - Tell me why
You run
My mother says my mother says:
Ya ba ye ya ba ye
My mother says my mother says:
Ya ba ya ba ye
Tell me why - Tell me why
Ya bi na ya
Don't run away
Ya ba ye ya ba ye
Don't run away
Ya ba ya ba ye
Tell me why, tell me why you cry
Don't run away
Ya ba ye ya ba ye
Don't run away
Ya ba ya ba ye
Tell me why - Tell me why
You run

long distance mix
no biz, like show biz
camera, lights, action - there it is
over the seas - count all 7 of 'em
it seems she's on the road again
traveling sea to sea as people come to see me
as Ofra sings the songs
bring along your benzi box
as the beat box rocks your street socks
remember the sample (cause I'm paid for)
the example - Im Nin'alu
so Charlie Brown & Ofra
having a ball today
Good grief, ma !
(she drives me crazy) *
Ofra, she's with it
Ofra, she's down with us
you know the deal
