This is an old Yiddish song about the downsides of Tenanthood.

lyrics

Dire-gelt un oy oy oy, Dire-gelt un boshe moy
Dire-gelt un gradewoy, Dire-gelt mus men tsoln

Kumt arayn der strush, nemt er arop dos hitl
Un as men tsolt im mit keyn dire-gelt Hengt er aroys a kwitl

Dire-gelt un oy oy oy, Dire-gelt un boshe moy
Dire-gelt un gradewoy, Dire-gelt mus men tsoln

Kumt arayn der sshonzte mit dem grobn shtekn
Un as men gibt im nit keyn dire-gelt Shtelt er aroys di betn

Dire-gelt un oy oy oy, Dire-gelt un boshe moy
Dire-gelt un gradewoy, Dire-gelt mus men tsoln

Oy farwos sol ich aych gebn dire-gelt, as di kich is zerbrochn?
Oy farwos sol ich aych tsoln dire-gelt, as ich hob nisht
ojf wos zu kochn?
