Tsu vos-zhe gibn dir, mayn libe kind?

Title

Tsu vos-zhe gibn dir, mayn libe kind?

Date

1955

Description

[Note from typewritten tape log in box:] These [marriage songs] are not songs of ceremonials or rites. These are songs which touch upon the marriage theme, either in jest, satirically, in dance or even in a children’s rhyme like [Tape 70] No. 3. Sometimes they bear the mark of the marriage entertainer (badkhn). [Handwritten note:] Like [Tape 70] No. 5.

The daughter sings she doesn’t want a shuster (shoemaker), or a balegole (driver), stoler (carpenter), koveling, - for various reasons (like, the stolier makht a bet [makes a bed] un git dem vay donershtik a get (on Thursday gives his wife a divorce) - but a dokter (Dr.) - yes. In 3/4 meter.

Compare song #14 on this tape: “Tsu vos-zhe gibn dir, mayn libe kind?” Very similar words, both in 3/4 meter. But #9 chorus is in major key, # 14 in minor key. #9 is humorous; #14 is much darker, and talks a lot about the various types of husbands beating their wives.

Date

1955

Description

[Note from tape log on outside of tape box for the original, spliced tape, not included on the tape log of the dupe:] My childhood in Montreal, Canada, is closely bound with my Yiddish education in a secular Jewish school. Many of these rhymes stem from that environment, as well as the one at home, where my Bessarabian-born mother, shared her own childhood memories of games and rhymes and taunts and teasers, with me. Blessed with a retentive memory...I later picked up many more from my informants. Song almost identical to #9, "Shikt der har a poyerl in vald" except the agent commanding is different. 41842

Kh’hob gevolt far mayn tokhter a shidekh

Date

I have tried to separate out some of the singers: into those who were born in Europe (*), those who were born and brought up in the USSR and those who were born in the United States. Those born and brought up in the USSR include in their repertoire, songs created for the Jewish children in their own secular schools, during the 20s and 30s.
