The Lyrics

What's a nice (?) Catholic girl like Madonna doing in a song like this?
I've stopped eating pig-based meat
Some now think that I'm a Jew
Won't perform on Friday nights
And they say "Who knew"?
But the Pope, he said nope
Said it's wrong, condemnation's strong
But this makes me feel
Yeah, this makes me feel
Kabbalistically true

Call me Esther
Now running on Jewish time
Call me Esther
And I'm learning
With Rabbi Fine

Now I've got a Hebrew name
'cause my fame is fading fast
Now I'm Esther, like the one
Who took Haman to task
I can learn while I earn
Modest dress, not what my fans yearn
Oh Madonna's out
Yeah, Madonna's out
And Esther is in

Call me Esther
Now running on Jewish time
Call me Esther
And I'm learning
With Rabbi Fine

Oy, Oy, Oy!
Say "Shemah Yisrael"
Get on stage, time to shake some tail
Eat a Kosher meal
Yeah, eat a Kosher meal
And my fans all say "Nu?"

Call me Esther
Now running on Jewish time
Call me Esther
And I'm learning
With Rabbi Fine

Strange that in all this Kabbalah hullaballoo, I'd actually forgotten that our girl was actually raised Catholic...

555, but let's leave the poor old dear alone now, OK?

555, but hey, KR, who ya callin' old, eh? Esther's 1958 vintage, just like yours truly, and Donny Osmond, Michael Jackson (eww), and Ellen Degeneres, to name a few...hmm...1958 was a weird year, I guess, present company most definitely included.... ;-D

Arwen--glad you liked it. Leo--yeah, I think her Catholic roots showed up a lot in her videos, especially "Like A Prayer". Kristof--I promise I'll leave Esther alone so she can move on to the next level (that's a Kabbalistic joke, folks!). JD--Hey, I was born in '57--I guess my weirdness is one year...older.

555 is a mystical number in the Kabbalah. At least two parodies with a bit of Yiddish today. Inspiration.

Well MasonR, I guess the Material Blonde has now buried her Catholic roots along with her brunette ones...
MasonR - June 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Leo--I just think she's wigged out. :-)

I was born in the same year as MasonR.
