Art/Literary - Music / lyrics of *Bei mir bist Du schejn*
English term or phrase: boys, men, respectively
Hi again (all other questions I posed from Yiddish to EN),

Now I know, that this is really a question for language learners, but I don't have any dictionary at hand.

I am looking for the counterpart of *meydlekh*, i.e. the lyrics a (heterosexual ;-) woman would sing.

Fil sheyne meydlekh hobn gevolt nemen mir, un fun zey ale oysgeklibn hob ikh nor dikh.

There is this nice version of the song on YouTube
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUVEq6NC7mM
in which the corresponding part sounds a bit like
***ih(n) - la***

Looking very much forward to your help.

sicher nicht die einzige Übersetzung.
Daneben gibts noch den shaygetz (das männliche Gegenstück zur schickse), der vermutlich beim mejdl oder meydlekh keine Chance (pardon, kein Massl) hat.
