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
