A Tear for a Star

My little birds have left the nest

Fly Little Bird

Arik Einstein died last night at the age of 74… He was unparalleled in the music industry in Israel and I doubt there are many parents in Israel who didn’t hear one of his songs as their youngest children finished nursery school and moved on to first grade. They grow so fast…and Arik Einstein’s song, “Fly Little Bird” always brought me to tears…”fly wherever you want, but don’t forget there’s an eagle in the sky, be careful…”



Fly Little Bird

My little birds have left the nest

Spread their wings and flew away

And I, an old bird, remained in the nest

Really hoping that everything will be alright.

I always knew the day would come

When we’d have to part

But now it came to me so suddenly

So what’s the wonder that I’m a bit concerned.

Fly, little bird

Cut through the sky

Fly to wherever you want

Just don’t forget

There’s an eagle in the sky

Be cautious…

We are now alone in the nest

But we are together

Hold me tight and tell me yes

Do not worry, it’s fun to grow old together

Fly, little bird…

I know that it’s just nature

I also left a nest

But now when he comes the moment

I get choked up (in the throat)

I get choked up…

Fly, little bird…
