Seder Songs: Seder Night Fever

One fun way to spice up your seder is by including some silly song parodies. This one was sent to us by Fae Silverman, the program coordinator of the Jewish Community Alliance of Southern Maine.

PHAROAH:
At first I was afraid
That I’d be mummified
Kept thinking I could never live
With Hebrews by my side
But then I spent so many nights
Thinking how to make them slaves
And I grew strong
And learned that I could not be wrong

But now you’re back
You’re in my space
You just walked in to find me here
And I’ve got boils on my face
I should have changed that stupid law
I should have taken all your straw
If I’d have known for just one second
Just how much you’d shock-and-awe

Go on now go
Walk out the door
Just turn around now
Cause you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to
Break me with the plagues
Did you think I’d crumble?
Yeah well take it to the Hague

MOSES:
Let’s not be vague
We’re not afraid
Oh as long as we know who we are
We know we’ve got it made
We’ve got all our lives to live
We’ve got all our love to give
It’s time to wade
It’s time to wade
Hey hey

It took all the faith we had
To make the Red Sea part
Kept trying hard to mend
The pieces of our broken hearts
And we spent oh so many nights
Just feeling sorry for ourselves
We used to cry
But now we hold our heads up high

Now you see us
So catch a clue
We’re not that chained up little Hebrew
Still enslaved by you
And then you thought you’d change your mind
And just expect us to agree
But now we’re saving all our loving
For ourselves because we’re free

PHAROAH:
Go on now go
Walk out the door
Just turn around now
Cause you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to break me with the frogs?
Did you think I’d crumble?
And be scared of polliwogs?

MOSES:
Call off the dogs
We’ll dialogue
Oh as long as we can find our way back to the synagogue
We’ve got all our lives to live
We’ve got all our love to give
It’s time to jog
It’s time to jog
Oh-h-h

PHAROAH:
Go on now go
Walk out the door
Just turn around now
Cause you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to break me with the lice?
Did you think I’d crumble?
Just because you can’t be nice?

MOSES:
Oh no, no dice
Let’s be precise
Oh as long as we behave ourselves
We’ll get to paradise
We’ve got all our lives to live
We’ve got all our love to give
So just be nice
So just be nice
So just be nice
