Mayn Yidishe Meydele/Miami Seashore Rhumba

Mayn Yidishe Meydele My Yidishe Woman by Sholom Secunda and Anshel Schorr

“Mayn Yidishe Meydele” could be the name track of a second Avenue musical from the 20's. Yiddish viewers enjoyed a great tango.

My Yidishe woman, she's so beautiful, together Yidishe appeal. Hair of gold, teeth like pearls; you can search other nations by the hundreds of thousands, you'll never discover a woman with this Yidishe allure.

Mayn Yidishe Meydele The Yidishe Woman Shalom Secunda, Anshel Schorr

Mayn yidishe meydele My yidishe girl

Mit a yidishn kheyn With such yidishe appeal

Miami Beach Rhumba by Irving Fields

I have paired “Mayn Yidishe Meydele” with a Latin number through the 40's, “Miami seashore Rhumba”. John plays guest percussion.

We transliterated the Yiddish words from Seymour Rexite's recording on YouTube. I'd love some feedback concerning this tune - contact myself at I've not however learned who blogged the Yiddish lyrics. We welcome any modifications (or alternate speculations) to our form of the words.

Trivia: "When Yuba Plays the Rhumba on their Tuba" had been popular for Rudy Vallee in 1931.

Gevolt hob ikh forn gor keyn Cuba I really wished to visit Cuba

Bin ikh in Miami seashore geven I ended off in Miami seashore

Un 2 iz gor nit vayt enjoyable Cuba and that is not that not even close to Cuba

Di rhumba, oy tantst males dort sheyn The rhumba, oh, they dance it there very well
