Hava nagila, hava nagila,
Hava nagila ve-nismecha!

Hava neranena, hava neranena,
Hava neranena, ve-nismecha!

‘Uru, ‘uru ’achim,
‘Uru ’achim be-lév saméach!
הָבָה נָגִילָה, הָבָה נָגִילָה,
הָבָה נָגִילָה וְנִשְׂמְחָה!

הָבָה נְרַנְּנָה, הָבָה נְרַנְּנָה,
הָבָה נְרַנְּנָה וְנִשְׂמְחָה!

עוּרוּ, עוּרוּ אַחִים,
עוּרוּ אַחִים בְּלֵב שָׂמֵחַ!

Translation:

Come on, let's rejoice, come on, let's rejoice,
Come on, let's rejoice and be happy!

Come on, let's exult, come on, let's exult,
Come on, let's exult and be happy!

Wake up, wake up, brothers!​
Wake up, brothers,​ with a happy heart!
