Yiddish Song of the Week—“Oy vey mame,” performed by Ita Taub

How can I better Pete Rushefsky's description, posted to the Jewish-Music mailing list? [I note that both Pete and Itzik will be teaching, in person, at KlezKanada, since that's just about the only thing I am thinking about at the moment ;-).]

Was she betrayed?
Will she find the strength to move on?
The darkness of heartbreak … like black coal.

Performance by Ita Taub, notes by Itzik Gottesman.
