The Lyrics

Thanks to Stan Hall and Mel Brooks for the idea.
Torquemada why
Must I be goy guy?
I passed the Bar;
A part's snipped bye-bye.

Snarling to me: "Pray
That you find the way.
I'll beat you up
Till you toe the line!"

Torquemada's kind
Torques ya every time.
Torquemada's kind
Isn't very kind.

Isabella, why
Must I be goy guy?
Please have a heart;
I'm parched, of food shy.

Darling, hear my prayer,
Isabella, fair,
Send in some lunch,
Manischewitz wine.
Isabella, dine.
Send some Kosher wine,
Isabella fine,
In a Kosher stein.

Oy, oy, oy, oy. . . .

He too's been Barred;
He's part snipped, that guy.
Let me breathe free air
Or I'll loudly blare
I'll tell your thugs--
I've inquired and find:

Torquemadastein. . . .

What Alvin said. Now here's another idea ... how about a twist on something by erstwhile Monkee Peter Tork? :-)
