On the sign:
דג קטן שם בברכה כל היום בכה בכה:
"אוי כל כך משעמם לי, עוד מעט וארדם לי.
במקום שיר יוצאות בועות - די, נמאס לי דג להיות.
מים, מים, זה לא טוב כל הזמן אני רטוב!"
יום אחד אמר לו גל: "אל תהיה כל כך אומלל,
עד שלוש אם רק תספור - תהפך חיש לציפור."
למרום ציפור המריאה, כל ענן הידד הריע.
כל היום להתעופף די קשה ומעייף.
אמרה ציפור בקל נשבר: "רוצה אני להיות עכבר."

מתוך הדג שלא רצה להיות דג

[לוח שני]
מוטב לו כבר להיות לדב.
בכוורת דבש זהב, מה טובים חייו של דב.
הדבש מתוק, הלשון מתגלגלת, אבל הבטן בסוף מתבלבלת.
החום עולה, הדב חולה, עיניים במרום תולה
ומבקש מן השמים להיות שוב דג במים.
את כל הסיפור סיפרנו, לא דילגנו, לא מיהרנו,
לא שכחנו אף מילה עד אשר הסוד נגלה -
כי תמיד הכי כדאי להיות אתה - ודי!

Translation of the text on the sign:
A small fish there in the pond all day cried and cried:
"Oh so boring to me, soon I will fall asleep.
Instead of a song, bubbles come out - enough, I’m tired of being a fish.
Water, water, it’s not good all the time I’m wet! "
One day a wave told him: "Do not be so miserable,
If you only count to three, you will soon become a bird. "
To the heights the bird took off, every cloud cheering cheered.
Flying all day is pretty hard and tiring.
Said an easily broken bird: "I want to be a mouse."

From the fish that did not want to be a fish

[Table Two]
He better be a bear already.
In a golden honey hive, what good is a bear’s life.
The honey is sweet, the tongue rolls, but the stomach at the end gets confused.
The fever is rising, the bear is sick, eyes on high are hanging
And asks heaven to be a fish in the water again.
We told the whole story, we did not skip, we did not hurry,
We did not forget a word until the secret was revealed.
Because it’s always best to be you - and enough!
