TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR  

Two-zuz, Two-zuz, little goat,
How I want you down my throat!
Up above a dog, stick and fire,
Water drank by a cow in the mire,

Two-zuz, Two-zuz, little goat,
How I want you down my throat!
Up above a Butcher, Angel and
Blessed be He,
How I wonder–
How did you split the sea?

 

OH WHEN THE SAINTS

Oh, when the slaves go marching out,
Oh, when the slaves go marching out,
Lord how I want to be in that seder
When the slaves go marching out

And when the cups are filled with wine
And when the cups are filled with wine
Lord, how I want to be in that seder
When the cups are filled with wine

And when the Nile turns red with blood
And when the Nile turns red with blood
Lord, how I want to be in that seder
When the nile turns red with blood

GREAT GREEN GOBS

Great green gobs of greasy grimey
Karpas guts,
Mutiliated marror beats,
Chopped up little charosets sweets!

French fried matzahbrei mixed in
with sederleftover mush,

I for-got my spoon!

ITSY BITSY SPIDER

The itsy bitsy Kinim
Climbed up the blood-filled water spout

Down came the hail
And washed the frogs and wild animals out.

Out came the darkness
And dried up all the sun

So the itsy-bitsy kinim
Climbed out of Egpyt again!

 

LITTLE TEAPOT

I’m a little Matzah
Short and stout
Here is my Water
Here is my Flour

When I get all baked up
don’t let me rise, Just
“Pass me over
and take me out!”

 

DREIDEL, DREIDEL, DREIDEL  

I have a little matzah
I made it out of dough
And when it’s baked and ready
Then matzah I shall show!

It has a lovely round body
With a body flat and thin
And when my matzah’s hiding
It breaks and then I win!

My matzah’s always playful
It loves to breakdance and spin
A happy game at the seder
Come play now, let’s find the afikomen

ON TOP OF SPAGHETTI

On top of shmura matzah all covered with cream cheese.
I lost my poor matzah when somebody sneezed. (from marror)

It rolled off the seder table, it rolled on the floor,
And then my poor matzah rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden oh boy it was dumb,
And then my poor matzah was nothing but crumbs.

The crumbs were ass tasty as tasty could be,
And early next seder it grew to a matzah tree.

The tree was all covered with strawberry jelly.
It grew great big matzah that I put in my belly.

So if you eat shmura matzah all covered with cheese,
Hold on to your matzah and don’t ever sneeze. (from maror)

 

COMET

Marror,
it smells like gas-o-line.

Marror,
it tastes like vas-o-line.

Marror.

It makes your tongue sore.

So eat some marror, and make you tongue-sore,
today!

Mockingbird  for Passover
Hush, little Moses, don’t say a word,
God’s going to give you a bush to burn.
And if that burning bush don’t sing,
God’s going to make you goto the Egyptian king.
And if that king’s heart turns hard,
God’s going to give you a get-out-of-jail-free-card
And if that get out of jail card don’t cash,
God’s going to give you a walking staff.
And if that walking staff breaks,
God’s going to bring blood to the lakes.
And if that bloody water gets dumped,
God’s going to bring you frogs that jump.
And if those frogs don’t play nice,
God’s going to bring you creepy crawly lice.
And if those lice don’t seem to itch,
God’s gonna bury your animals in a ditch,
And if wild animals are ruining the soil,
God’s gonna bring you skin burning boils,
And if those boils don’t make you wail,
God’s gonna pour down on you fiery hail,
And if that hail ain’t as big as nuts,
God’s gonna send you swarmy locusts,
And if those locust eat all your bark,
God’s gonna make the sun go dark,
And if you thought darkness is the worst of the storms,
God’s gonna take your very first born.
So here is a lesson you should know,
If you were a good pharaoh you would just let my people go

Hokey Pokey
Y
ou put your right hand in,
You put your right hand out,
You put your right hand in and you wash it all about,
you do the Hamotzei Pokey and you dry off your hands
That’s what urchatz is all about!

Huh, where’s the Bread?

To tune of Take me out to the Ballgame
Take me out to the Seder
Take me out to the crowd
Feed me some matzah and charoses

Cause it root root root for Moshe Rabbeinu
Had to break the luchas what a shame!
For it’s one, two, …four cups of wine
At the ole seder plate!
