The Lyrics

Is This Yiddish Right?

I do mind goyim boys shtuppin' mein shiksa—oy!
Zehr klein—these shmuks are bubkes to the mohel.
Mein chutzpah is kaput; I feel farklempt tonight.
I'm kvetching, Alright?!
Is this Yiddish right?

Feel like a shlemiel—I'll shlep off, oy vey!
A shlump, shnoz in shmutz—what a putz! Oy vey!
It's hard to match notes in this bilingual josher.
I'm just a word nosher and a jargon joker.
Are mein terms kosher?

These goys are gonifs; I'm gone if I see these meshugge.
I will yentz a yentl who'll also fress "sugar."

I do mind goyim boys shtuppin' mein shiksa—oy!
Zehr klein—these shmuks are bubkes to the mohel.
Mein chutzpah is kaput; I feel farklempt tonight.
I'm kvetching, Alright?! I this Yiddish right?
Is this Yiddish right? (3x)

I havent been to this site in a long time, and this was the first parody I've read in a long time. What a rockin' song to come back to. Excellent job, dude.
