יֶלֶד בְּתַחְפֹּשֶׂת מַפְחִידָה
מְבַקֵּשׁ מִגְּבֶרֶת גּ’וֹנְס מַמְתָּק
וְהִיא שֶׁדֶּלֶת בֵּיתָהּ פְּתוּחָה
מְחַפֶּשֶׂת בַּמְּזָוֶה
אוּלַי תִּמָּצֵא פְּרוּסַת שׁוֹקוֹלָד עִם קַצֶּפֶת
וּמָה יִקְרֶה אִם לֹא תִּמְצָא
הוּא כְּבָר מֵכִין לָהּ תַּעֲלוּל.

בְּלֵיל כָּל הַקְּדוֹשִׁים
אֶרְצֶה לִהְיוֹת הַיַּלְדָּה הַמְּחֻפֶּשֶׁת
לְפֵיָה טוֹבָה
אֲבַקֵּשׁ מִכָּל הַקְּדוֹשִׁים
שֶׁיָּשִׁיבוּ אוֹתְךָ מִדַּרְכְּךָ הָאֲבוּדָה.

אֶרְצֶה שֶׁתִּהְיֶה הַיֶּלֶד שֶׁיָּבוֹא
אֶהְיֶה הָאֵם הַטּוֹבָה
אֶהְיֶה הָאָחוֹת הָרַחְמָנִיָּה
אֶהְיֶה הַמְּאַהֶבֶת שֶׁלְּךָ.

כְּבָר לֹא תִּצְטָרֵךְ לְהָכִין לִי תַּעֲלוּלִים
אֶהְיֶה מָה שֶׁתִּרְצֶה
בְּלֵיל כָּל הַקְּדוֹשִׁים.
