The Lyrics

I'm not Israeli (or even Jewish, for that matter) but this seemed like a fairly obvious idea for a song parody that hadn't been done yet, so I just had to write it...
Waited such a long long time, such a sight
It's looking better than a country has a right to
Don't you know that now I'm an Israeli
Left my old home behind and made aliyah

Aliyah! It's my brand new home
Aliyah! Not in Paris, not in Rome
Aliyah! It's my brand new home

I was verklempft when I lived among the goyim, say
Great kosher foods here and I really can enjoy 'em, hey
Hummus, bagels, lox, I'm gonna eat 'em
No pork and beans; a sabra just don't need em, 'liyah

Aliyah! It's my brand new home
Aliyah! Not in Tokyo or Rome
Aliyah! It's my brand new home

Work on a kibbutz and brush up on my Hebrew
Or climb Mount Carmel, I wish I could enjoy the view
But that big hill got burned up in a fire*
Oh well, at least Mount Hermon's higher**

Aliyah! It's my brand new home
Aliyah! It's my brand new home
Aliyah! Leah, Leah, Leah
Aliyah! It's my brand new home

Aliyah! Leah, Leah
Aliyah! I'm never ever ever gonna go back yeah (Yerida)
Aliyah, it's my brand new home
*Mount Carmel in Israel was the sight of a major forest fire in December 2010. **Mount Hermon is internationally recognized as part of Syria, but a portion of it is under Israeli control.

Pretty good parody... I like the original song, and it's nice to see an Israeli/Jewish-themed parody of jocular nature that has no racist qualities like many I have seen on here over the years. I initially misread the title as "Alydia", which is the name of an internet friend whom I think of as a baby sister in some ways, then thought this was going to be about the singer who died in a plane crash after seeing the actual title... well-deserved 5s.
