Chaim Topol - To Life lyrics

MEN:
Here's to our prosperity, our good health and happiness,
and most important ...
To life, to life, le'chaijm,
Le'chaijm, le'chaijm, to life,
Here's to the father I tried to be,
Here's to my bride-to-be,
Drink le'chaijm, to life,
To life, le'chaijm,
La kayim, le'chaijm, to life,
Life has a way of confusing us,
Blessing and bruising us,
Drink le'chaijm, to life!

God would like us to be joyful, even when our hearts lie
panting on the floor.
How much more can we be joyful, when there's really
something to be joyful for?
To life, to life, le'chaijm,
To Tzeitel, my daughter--my wife,
It gives you something to think about,
Something to drink about,
Drink le chaim, to life!

Le Morta!
Yes, Lazar Wolf?
Drinks for everyone!
What's the occasion?
I'm taking myself a bride!
Who is it?
Tevye's eldest, Tzeitel!

To Lazar Wolf
To Tevye!
To Tzeitel, your daughter - my wife!
May all your futures be pleasant ones,
Not like our present ones,
Drink le'chaijm, to life,
To life, le'chaijm,
La kayim, le'chaijm, to life,
It takes a wedding to make us say,
"Let's live another day,"
Drink le'chaijm, to life!

We'll raise a glass and sip a drop of schnapps in honor of
the great
good luck that favors you,
We know that when good fortune favors two such men, it
stands to reason,
we deserve it too!
To us and our good fortune!
Be happy, be healthy, long life!
And if our good fortune never comes,
Here's to whatever comes,
Drink le'chaijm, to life!

Heaven bless you both, to your health and may we live
together in peace!
May you both be favored with the future of your choice,
May you live to see a thousand reasons to rejoice!

We'll raise a glass and sip a drop of schnapps in honor of
the great
good luck that favors you,
We know that when good fortune favors two such men, it
stands to reason,
we deserve it too!
To us and our good fortune!
Be happy, be healthy, long life!
And if our good fortune never comes,
Here's to whatever comes,
Drink le'chaijm, to life!
