The Lyrics

A rabbi with rabies is running a rowdy rampage resulting in remarkable ranting Jews. LOL! So many R's! I tried to make this as delicious and Jew-y as possible. Hopefully it doesn't offend. Keep in mind, this is all in good fun... plus this rabbi's rabid. He's crazy! You can base anything off of what he does. *Notes: "l'chaim"is a jewish saying meaning "to life". varenyky (pronounced varen-i-ki) is a Ukrainian dumpling that is a common fair in Jewish cuisine. Shalom means "peace". Cantor is a person that helps lead songs and prayers during temple. Kosher is when a food is blessed by a rabbi. Dreidels are spinning top-like toys used in Jewish games.
Intro: Dreidely-dreidely-dee
L’-Chai, l’chaim!

Verse 1: He speaks in the temple all day long
Foamin’ and shalomin’
And preachin’ the psalms
All the other rabbis at synagogue
Wonder why he’s actin’ like a sick dog

Chorus: Rabid Rabbi, Rabid Rabbi
No Rabid Rabbi, we don’t really wanna feel your bite!

Verse 2: Every single Ira, every Malachi
Try to sate the rabbi with varenyky
This mad old cantor, he said so rude
Shaming us all says, “You call this food?”

Chorus: Rabid Rabbi, can’t satisfy
Please Rabid Rabbi, we should get you a doc tonight
Yeah, yeah!

[Rabid Rabbi guitar solo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]

Bridge: Angry manic rabbi at the pulpit-stand
Reading from the Torah while chewing his hand
He grabbed a pair of clippers and he did shave
In his beard a menorah and the Star of Dave

Verse 3: He shames us all daily, must repent
Ate a pound bacon, but on accident
All the Jewish Mothers watch and say “Eeeeeeeh”
They think all his sermons are kind of “meeeeeh”

Chorus: Rabid Rabbi (L’-Chai-M!)
Rabid Rabbi (L’-Chai-M!)
Go Rabid Rabbi cuz these mothers gonna start a fight

Bridge 2: Loco nutty preacher took a bite of Kyle
Sat and thought of if he liked the taste awhile
He snatched a fork and napkin just to be sure
He turned and he asked me if this is kosher!

Verse 4: He walks ‘round the temple all day long
Mooin’ and Hebrewin’, in yarmulke thongs
Now that crazy rabbi has disappeared
Prob’ly lost like Moses, for 40 years

Chorus: Rabid Rabbi (L’-Chai-M!)
Rabid Rabbi (L’-Chai-M!)
Poor Rabid Rabbi, cuz we have to put him down tonight

Outro: Dreidely-dreidely-dee

Oy vey, this was bad; bit in such a good way! In the grand tradition of Allan Sherman and The Yiddish People.

I'm not Jewish, so this might not mean much since I don't know much of the culture, but 555 from me.

This parody wasn't just Jewish it was 100% completely Jew! I might be goyum but this parody cracked me up!

Great job with this, I love the title switch! Although the last time I listened to the OS, it was part of a mash up with Smells Like Teen Spirit (It's really good! - ) so that threw me for a loop at first, but still really good work!

(ABC) I'm in the same boat as Abbott with the mash-up thing (it's the only way I can stand the OS), but still, this was a fantastic parody! 555!

(On the Waterfront) ROFLMAO! This is a Pius Riot! Great OS choice; it helps you crank out these great lines, rhymes, and title sub. ההה (That's 555 in Hebrew, at least according to Wikipedia)

Why are there "Rockin' Robin" parodies on the Jackson 5 page? Michael Jackson sang it as a solo, in fact it was his first solo hit (Bobby Day was the original, but he's not as well known).

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
