Notes
-  "The little bit of earth" from "The country girl" Libretto: Boris Thomashefsky "You think you will live forever, and so you strive to accumulate material things. But, everything is given up at the end for a little bit of earth, the grave. Remember throughout your life, that what truly remains yours are honest and charitable deeds, and a good name." Source: Heskes, Irene, Yiddish American Popular Songs, 1895-1950 (General)
-  From the operetta "Dos dorfs meydel" (General)
