Come where all our friends will find us
With the dancers there

There'll be people there from every nation
Dawn will find us laughing in the sunlight
Dancing in the city square

                
Tzena, Tzena, come and dance the Hora

All the boys will envy me for
Tzena, Tzena, when the band is playing
My heart's saying

Tzena,Tzena, ev'ryone is waiting,
For a wedding they're anticipating,
Ev'ryone is happy celebrating,
People dancing in the streets!

                
Clap your hands and (Clap) raise your voices higher,
Make a circle while we dance around the fire
Dance the Hora (Clap) to your heart's desire
All the world's in love with Tzena, Tzena.

Translation:

Go out, go out, go out young women and see
Soliders from our moshav.

Do not, do not, do not hide yourself away from
A brave son, a man of the army.

Take a look at this wildly awful translation by Mitchell Parish to see what violence can be done to a decent, simple song:

Tzena, Tzena, Tzena, Tzena
Don't you know that you're the darling of the regiment?
Tzena, Tzena, Tzena, Tzena,
All the soldiers want to see you, why don't you consent?
See the handsome soldiers gaily riding
Come out from wherever you are hiding
Won't you smile a little for the colonel Throw some kisses to the rest Tzena, Tzena, Bashful little Tzena Please don't be afraid of all the soldier boys, for Tzena, Tzena, All the boys adore you Calling for you Tzena, Tzena, Tzena
