To our prosperity, to good health and happiness!
And most important

To life, to life, l'chaim
L'chaim, l'chaim, to life
Here's to the father I've tried to be!
Here's to my bride to be!
Drink, l'chaim, to life
To life, l'chaim!

L'chaim, l'chaim, to life
Life has a way of confusing us
Blessing and bruising us
Drink, l'chaim, to life!

God would like us to be joyful
Even when our hearts lie panting on the floor
But how much more can we be joyful
When there's really something to be joyful for?
To life, to life, l'chaim

To Tzeitel, my daughter
My wife
It gives you something to think about
Something to drink about
Drink, l'chaim, to life!

Mordcha!
Yes, what is it Lazar Wolfe?
Ah Mordcha, drinks for everybody!
What's the big occasion Lazar?
I am taking myself a bride!
Who's the lucky one?
Tevye's eldest, Tzietel! (Mazel tov!)

To Lazar Wolfe! To Tevye!
To Tzeitel, your daughter!
My wife!
May all your futures be pleasant ones
Not like our present ones!
Drink, l'chaim, to life!
To life, l'chaim!
L'chaim, l'chaim, to life!
It takes a wedding to make us say
"Let's live another day"
Drink, l'chaim, 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! (ah!)
And if our good fortune never comes
Here's to whatever comes
Drink, l'chaim, to life!

Oh!
Za va, shas da rovia, Heaven bless you both! Nasdrovia!
To your health, and may we live together in peace
Za va, shas da rovia, heaven bless you both, nasdrovia!
To your health, and may we live together in peace (hey!)

May you both be favored with the future of your choice
May you live to see a thousand reasons to rejoice
Za va, shas da rovia, heaven bless you both, nasdrovia!
To your health, and may we live together in peace! (Hey!)
