The Lyrics

I'm one-quarter Jewish, so if you think this is offensive, only yell at me at 75 percent of your usual volume.
It's a hava nagila sunrise
staring slowly across the way.
Said, "Oy vey."
He was just a student med.
"Be a doctor," that's what Mom would say.
And now he'll pay.

Every night when the sun goes down
he won't be a "chosen" boy in town
and she'll just turn him down.

She wasn't just another shiksa
dancing at the med-school mixer, so
he had to go.

Drink another Manischewitz.
Wonder why the right words you ain't gots.
You're gonna plotz.

It's a hava nagila sunrise
go into the can to retch
whine and kvetch.

The title alone made me laugh! Very clever idea...the rest of us should be lifting you on a chair and carrying you around the room.
