Thank you, Ratos!  Yes, you did help!  There is another thread where another person from Israel essentially said the same.  The Hayehudim association seems to be due to a misunderstanding on my side.  So, either Lucy sings mostly unintelligibly or she really threw together some gibberish together with a few Hebrew words and phrases she remembered.  There's still LoDuca's statement, however, so this seems to be a dead end which only Lucy can resolve.

This is what I found.

No translation into English but it’s at least a way to listen to the song.  Wink
I read through a lot of the replies to your question and giggled at how quickly it turned into a debate on if Lucy Lawless wrote the lyrics/melody or if it was taken from something else…. 
I believe your question was if anyone knew of an English translation and where you could download it…don’t see why it got so complicated.— literally lost in translation lol

*shrug* looks like it was pretty much answered above, c. 17 years ago - there is no English translation, and there are lots of Jewish Xena fans, but none have ever provided a translation. I'm reminded of the lyrics to the intro song for the Scott Pilgrim movie, which some fans call "Launchpad McQuack" even though the singer protests that's not its name. 😉 Others call it "We Are Sex Bob-omb" since that's how the drummer introduces it, but she's announcing the band.

The reality is that it was written as an instrumental, but the singer improvised some nonsense words that fit the rhythm. So the "lyrics" are something like:

Let me let me make ya stasis
Mama mama serpentine
I got a breathalyzer
And ya body clean...

I think Lucy's Hebrew may be like that.

Anyway, welcome to sf-fandom, where all joxer boys and girls thrive. 😀

We does are. Father of "EH"what, father of "EH"what...ID "Ma"mother.. take no rabbi... Tranquility he am me....Travail EM Donia Xena burial lyrics..Em De JADDE Name NAH.
