Sabbath Day, Eating Pork

Perhaps you know this song better in its more traditional title-- Saturday In the Park by Chicago. Well here are MY lyrics to that classic rock staple...

Sabbath Day, Eating Pork

I’m not a very kosher Jew
Sabbath Day, eating pork
I’m not a very kosher Jew
People singing ‘Hava Nagila”
A mensch making Latkes
And sharing with all the goys
(fake Hebrew lyric)
Can you dig it? (no, oy vey!)
And I’ve been eating slabs of bacon
On Sabbath Day

Sabbath Day, eating pork
I’m not a very kosher Jew
Sabbath Day, eating pork
I’m not a very kosher Jew

People heading down to Florida
Suntans in Miami
Waiting for us all
Will you have a slab of bacon
Can you dig it? (oy, no way)
But I’ve been chewing links of sausage
Since yesterday

Old drunken Hasids, flying far away
Young moils, doing briss almost every day
Listen Abram, have a slab of bacon
A juicy slab of bacon

Every Jew eating pork
Drinking wine that is too dry
Every Jew eating pork
Drinking wine that’s far too dry
People eating, really munching
Tasty Latkes
And yummy Matzo Balls
If you’d like some, ya gotta try some
Can you dig it? (What? do I look like Job to you?)
I’ve been eating too much bacon
On Sabbath Day
