Tune: אימתי קאתי מר


Even when we want to know the amount
Of Jews, we don’t count
A half a Shekel coin we use
That’s for the sockets so the walls won’t be loose
The Kiyor to wash Kohanim’s feet and hands
Before working, and fulfilling their commands
The Shemen HaMischa with scent
To copy it, no one is meant
The Shemen HaMischa on kings to anoint
And on the Kohen Gadol that Hashem did appoint
Betzal’el was only 13 years old
When to build the Mishkan he was told
