Oi Va Voi is a British band that takes its name from a Yiddish-derived exclamation popular in modern Hebrew meaning, approximately, "Oh, dear!" It is an experimental band from London, England, which formed in the late 1990s. Their sound draws on Jewish music from both the Ashkenazic and Sephardic traditions, including both klezmer and Judaeo-Spanish music, as well as Eastern European, especially Hungarian folk music, as well as contemporary electronic music.

Oi Va Voi - Refugee
Album: Laughter Through Tears

You ask me why it is I come to you
When someone else is just as good
I asked them but they said the same
Didn't even ask my name

Explain to me just what it is you stand to lose
Spend a minute in my shoes
Don't you feel like you've paid your dues
Already

I'll show you that all our fates are so entwined
Don't lose your faith in humankind
Just don't forget my state of mind
Is fragile

Together we can enjoy the taste of dignity
As long as you believe in me
I'll show you my reality
I've seen a few

You ask me why it is I come to you
When someone else is just as good
I asked them but they said the same
Didn't even ask my name

There's another refugee
There's another refugee
Oh oh there's another refugee
Oh oh there's another refugee
