A Yiddish art song composed by Lazar Weiner, from a poem by Peretz Hirshbein.
Arranged/inspired by Dieter Behr, Viennese drummer/friend/activist/thinker. It is a dub-esque thing. Don Godwin made it very cool.
Once upon a time there was a Jew and his wife,
Poor as the world is big,
They have daughters, two,
But not even a groschen of money.
Oy Gevald, where does one find the dowry,
To marry off the daughters?
Listen, just listen, what happened,
This is not a laughing matter.
A guest comes for the Sabbath,
The open the door to him,
And who was it, who could it be?
Elijah the prophet.
After havdole, he was quietly off,
And left them with a blessing.
Buckets of milk, rivers of wine, a sea of coins,
Blessed them from their fate.
The world became stingy to them,
Those darn Jews.
The great punishment came,
For the sin they had committed;
The milk and wine became rotten,
From the coins, only a skull remained.
