"Oy Vey"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Warning: The following Yiddish lesson was written under the influence of Allan Sherman.
What a statement Oy Vey makes
Only five little letters
Say it and you'll feel better
It's no use to complain

If joint pains make you blue, dear
Just kvetch now, loud and true, dear
The message will get through, dear
Then I'll say Oy Vey, too

What a statement Oy Vey makes
When your son weds a Shiksa
He's not Doctor, he's Mister
You said "Oy" at his bris, what's up with this?

It's handy when you
Find lobster on the menu
What a statement Oy Vey makes
Exclamation by you

What a statement Oy Vey makes
When there's tzuris before me
It says "do not ignore me"
'Cause something is not right, so share your plight

"Goddammit"'s too strong here
But not as bland as "oh, dear"
Want to say "woe is to me"?
Just say: "Oy Vey is mir"
Parody by Mason "schepping nachas" Resnick
