Talkin' Hava Negeilah Blues

Hava Negeilah:
First you say it slowly, then
You yodel loudly.

This is a silly song from 1963. Dylan refers to a "foreign song" that he learned in Utah and it goes something like this etc...

Ha va
Ha va, na
Hava Na...
Ge, Ha va na gi
Lah, Ha va na gei lah

And it ends in a Jewish yodel: o-de-ley-e-e-oo!
