The Lyrics

You and me, we are from different times
You like to eat matza, I like to eat pork rinds.
I think you're crazy, and you wonder why
I'm such a gentile, I'm not a Jewish guy
Is there something I can do?
I've been looking for a Jew like you.

You look at me and you start to say "Oy, vey!"
I'm gonna learn Hebrew, maybe then I'll get my way
I won't sin, not at all
You say you wanna love me, but I have to wear a shawl.
Is there something I can do?
I only wanna be a Jew.
You can call me at schul,
I only wanna be a Jew.

Put on a little yarmulke, and phylacteries
I'll pray to Yahweh and I'll ask him, "Pretty please, God."
Say I want to be a Jew, want to make my spirit new.
And if He said that I could, well, then, little girl, could I marry you?
Well, I'm hoping that I do
('cause) I only wanna be a Jew.
Ain't Hebrew so cool,
I only wanna be a Jew.

(Guitar Solo)

Yeah, I'm so verklept with you,
I only wanna be a Jew.
You can call me at schul,
I only wanna be a Jew.

Sometimes I wonder if we'll ever be
You get so mad at me when I eat some pork and beans.
I think you're crazy, and you wonder why
I'm such a gentile, I'm not a Jewish guy
Is there something I can do?
I only wanna be a Jew.
You can call me at schul,
I only wanna be a Jew.

Yeah, I'm so verklept with you,
I only wanna be a Jew.
I only wanna be a Jew. (3x)
Come and see Jon's Page today! (Pretty please?)

Well, um, if you dont look at it from an offensive point, it is quite funny, but some may construe its meaning wrong

The pacing was a little off in some places, but other than that, it's very nicely done.
I even liked it better than Weird Al's "Pretty Fly For A Rabbi"! Seriously. 455
