This song, written in the style of a folksong, by Mordechai Gebirtig, is about a man who has 3 daughters and needs to marry them off.  When the first one gets married there is great joy and relief. But by the time the third daughter gets marrried, the father expresses his regret that  his three dear daughters are all out of the house and the house is now regretfully empty.
