The Lyrics

Parodists seeking tips: Look no further.

This is something every jew
From New York to Timbuktu
Does to welcome to the fold
Every male who's eight days old

Bubbes and beaming Zaides
Machers and high-class ladies
All lift a glass and say
"L'Chaim!" or, sometimes, "Oy Vey!"


Here's a very old tradition
We still share
For it's God's wish in
Puttin' On A Bris

Mohels today
Will treat you fairly
When you pay
And only rarely
Do they miss
Puttin' On A Bris


Even tough guys sometimes bite a lip off
If they stand in too close to the tip-off

(final chorus)

When it's through
You munch on latkes
And lox too
While alte kahkes
Puttin' On A Bris

Bridge should read: Even tough guys sometimes bite a lip off If they stand in too close to the tip-off Better slip off

I'm going to print this out. Think of that poor baby in excruciating pain while people stand there drinking wine and saying "mazel tov!".

Ok, so he missed the "super duper" line. Big flamin' whoop. This parody is so hilarious and well-written (better than anything I could come up with for a "Puttin' On The Ritz" parody), that I didn't even notice until Jeffy mentioned it! And it perfectly demonstrates how a parody can be funny without resorting to profanity or even crude terms. A hands-down 555 and, in my opinion, serious contender for Song Of The Month. Good luck on that!

Ann, ya think you could say S_O_M_E_T_H_I_N_G besides "he he" for a change? You're slippin' into the "broken record" category!
