In life it's not about being rich or famous, happiness comes from being healthy. This is according to the text, which reads a little like a Yiddish folksong. This is no accident, as Abraham Ellstein was renowned for composing music for Yiddish theater. He also composed prolifically for the synagogue. Molly Picon is considered one of the greatest actresses of Yiddish theater and film, and sang this song in her show 'Mameleh.'
