The Lyrics

Schnoorer: Yiddish for beggar. Gelt: Yiddish for money. Here's a song for our times...
Well I was crossing the street
I was dressed really neat
Then a guy walks up
His hand invades my air
But I wouldn't give out a dollar, nooooo,
To that schnoorer standing there

So he stared right at me
I ignored his plea
And he said to me
That life just isn't fair
One day I'll get my comeuppance, woooo,
Said that schnoorer standing there

Soon I lost my wealth
Madoff stole my gelt
And the bank took my McMansion, oooh

Now I'm out on the street
And I'm looking rather beat
Didn't take too long
For financial despair
Now, sir, can you spare me a dollar, pleeeease?
I'm the schnoorer standing there

Parody by Mason "brother, can you spare a million?" Resnick
