Sing us a song for the seder, man! Celebrating our freedom and 50 years of the #PianoMan himself, the one and only @Billy Joel, with a few of his greatest hits. ๐ŸŽน Billy is one of our musical heroes (not to mention a member of the tribe!), so this one's very special to us. #ChagSameach!

LYRICS


It's 9:00 on a Seder day

The annual crowd's shuffled in

There's a zaidy sitting next to me

Making kiddush for all of his kin


He says "sons, do you have any inquiries?"

Like why we trade bread for matzot?

And this maror we eat, dipping bitter in sweet

Or why we don't keep the door closed?


Oh, ma, ma, ma nishtana

La da di di dayenu


G-d set us free from the Pharaoh man

That's why we rejoice tonight

And Jews, although pursued by the enemy,

With G-d's help, it turned out alright


Nation of Israel was tired and sore

Praying for redemption someday

Moshe Rabbeinu came and burst through door

He said, "hey, let us out of this country"


Ah, but saying no to G-d brought on a plague attack (-ack-ack-ack-ack-ack)

You oughta know by now

All that hard work gave us broken backs

But then we were gone in a hurry

Well, the Pharaoh, he changed his mind

Yeah, but we never had a doubt

Matzah, 'cause bread can't rise up, it's time...


To move out

Ooh, we're movin' out

Out of Egypt


Clean the house, change pans, "Strangers in a Strange Land"

Celebration, Jewish liberation

Reading from the Haggadah, "Adir Hu" and "Chad Gadya"

Ten plagues, four sons, who knows one? I know one!


K-P, house clean, "father bought for two zuzim"

Gefen, Lieber's and Kedem, next year in Jerusalem

"Dayenu", charoset, we sold all of our chametz

Tell me, what is all this for? I can't take much more maror!


G-d set a bush on fire

Moses saw it burning,

Still today we're learning

G-d set a bush on fire

And when we are gone

We'll see the flame live on, and on, and on, and on...


Four cups of red?

Four cups of white?

This night is different from all other nights

It's 'cause of what G-d did for us

When we made our Exodus
