The Lyrics

The subject matter of the song may sound controversial, but it's strictly for entertainment value. Inspired by the TV show "Desperate Housewives" and the OS from which this parody is derived, It's the fictitous account of a Jewish woman who is married to a Jewish man, but is cheating on him with a non-Jewish man, as she hardly gets to see her husband due to conflicting work schedules. Below this song is a mini-glossary of Hebrew and Yiddish terms used in this song for the "Jewishly impaired". Enjoy!
Soul mate of my life,
Jewish Mr. Right,
But he keeps avoiding me.
We work diff'rent shifts,
Far apart we drift.
I'm in need of company.

Need another man
"Cause I'm in need of love,
I need to turn my gray sky blue.
A car is pulling in.
Husband's gone again
"Cause to him I just can't be true

And I know that this thing is unJewish
And it kills me inside
To know that I hooked up with a gentile guy.
Matrimony's dying.

I don't wanna do this anymore.
I don't wanna be an unfit wife.
Everytime my man leaves for work
I see a Get in front of me each time.
I don't wanna hurt him anymore.
Don't want him to walk out of my life.
I don't wanna be
An aguna.

I feel it in the air.
I'm tearing out my hair,
Preparing for another day.
A kiss upon my cheek;
Same thing week after week
And then I'm on my merry way,
Then later in the day
I'm hangin' with the goy;
A secret I've been keeping well,
But everyone knows where I'm about to go—
Yes, I'm goin' straight to Hell

And I know that this thing is unJewish
And it kills me inside
To know that I hooked up with a gentile guy.
Matrimony's dying.

I don't wanna do this anymore.
I don't wanna be an unfit wife.
Everytime my man leaves for work
I see a Get in front of me each time.
I don't wanna hurt him anymore.
Don't want him to walk out of my life.
I don't wanna be
An aguna.

My Jewish guilt!
I might as well go to him and ask him for a Get,
Get it over with!
I don't wanna do this anymore!

I don't wanna do this anymore.
I don't wanna be an unfit wife.
Everytime my man leaves for work
I see a Get in front of me each time.
I don't wanna hurt him anymore.
Don't want him to walk out of my life.
I don't wanna be
An aguna.
An aguna.

Oy, oy, oy!
No!
