Yiddish: May he turn yellow and green!

פֿאַרגעלט און פֿאַרגרינט זאָל ער ווערן!

Fargelt un fargrint zol er vern!

May he turn yellow and green!

SOURCE: Stutchkoff, Der Oytser fun der Yidisher Shprakh. Yosef Guri (Let's hear Only Good News) explains that this curse is used when someone asks for money, since the word fargelt (turn yellow) includes the word gelt (money).
