Learn Yiddish Through Poetry

			A NUZ is a nose
			A RAZE is a rose	
			And GRUZZ is grass
			That grows and grows.
			ESS'n is eat
			HITS is the heat
			and FLAYSH is every kind of meat.
			A bed is a BET
			A divorse is a GET
			And the thing you wear on your head
			Is a HET.
			Money is GELT
			The world is DEE VELT
			And when you get angry and curse
			You Shelt.
			LICHT is light
			And ANEG is tight
			And after TUG comes NACHT
			Which is night.
