LAKOVA SHELI

 

Lakova sheli shalosh pinot shalosh

Pinot lakova sheli v'imlohayu lo shalosh

Pinot lo haya ze hakova sheli kova sheli.

 

My hat has three corners

If it did not have three corners

It would not be my hat.

 

Mordechai

(to the tune of Jingle Bells)

 

Dashing through Shushan

On a horse that is the king's

Wearing royal robes

With gold and diamond rings

Haman's leading you

Angry as can be

His plan was not to honor you

but to hang you from a tree!

 

Refrain

Oh! Mordechai, Mordechai!

The king has honored you

Wear his crown, do up the town

Do what you want to do!

 

Esther told the King

About Hamn’s evil plot

She thought that she might die

He said that she would not

He sent out a decree

The plot was not to be

We honor Esther and Mordechai

For their bravery!! Oh..refrain

 

 

 

Ani Purim

 

 

My name is Purim and I come,

great fun and laughter bringing

Just once a year I visit you

to cheer you with my singing.

 

La La La La La . . . .

 

Chag Purim

 

Chag Purim, Chag Purim,

Chag gadol hu la-y'hudim.

Masechot, ra'shanim,

Z'mirot, rikudim.

Hava narisha: Rash! Rash! Rash!

Barashanim.

 

Purim Day, Purim Day,

What a happy holiday.

Wearing masks, wearing crowns,

Dancing all around.

Let's hear the groggers: Rash! Rash! Rash!

On this Purim Day!

 

Utzu Eitza

 

Utzu eitza vetufar

Dabru davar velo yakum

Ki imanu Eil

 

You can Change the World – Debbie Friedman

 

In a place you may have heard about, in Shushan as you know

An evil man named Haman said, “The Jews have got to go.”       

Now Esther was the Jewish queen and she knew not where to turn,

Til Mordechai her cousin said, “There is something you must learn. Oh Esther....”

 

YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD,

YOU CAN MAKE THE WORLD COMPLETE.

TAKE THE PRIDE YOU FEEL INSIDE

AND NEVER ACCEPT DEFEAT.

 

There’s an evil plot against us now, a list of cruel demands.

And Esther, only you can help, our fate is in your hands.

She said, “Cousin,do you really think, that a difference I can make?

A Jewish girl before the king, it could be a big mistake.” Oh Esther....”

 

CHORUS:

So Esther went before the king, and though she was afraid.

She stood up proud and spoke out loud.  And her people all were saved.

So now we read the Megillah, at Purim time each year

And learn how God can give us strength, to overcome our fears: Oh Esther....” CHORUS:
