Tradition

Tradition, Tradition, Tradition!
Tradition, Tradition, Tradition!

Who day and night must scramble for a living
Feed a wife and children
Say his daily prayers
And who has the right as master of his house
To have the final word at home
The papa, the papa, tradition
The papa, the papa, tradition


Sabbath Prayer

May the Lord protect and defend you
May He always shield you from shame
May you come to be
In paradise a shining name

May you be like Ruth and like Esther
May you be deserving of praise
Strengthen them oh Lord
And keep them from the stranger's ways

May God Bless you
And grant you long lives
(May the Lord fulfill our Sabbath prayer for you)
May He make you
Good mothers and wives
(May He send you husbands who will care for you)

May the Lord protect and defend you
May the Lord preserve you from pain
Favor them oh Lord
With happiness and peace
Oh hear our Sabbath prayer, Amen


Matchmaker

Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match
Find me a find, catch me a catch
Matchmaker, matchmaker look through your book
And make me a perfect match

Matchmaker, matchmaker I'll bring the veil
You bring the groom, slender and pale
Bring me a ring for I'm longing to be
The envy of all I see

For Papa, make him a scholar
For Mama, make him rich as a King
For me, well, I wouldn't holler
If he were as handsome as anything

Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match
Find me a find, catch me a catch
Night after night I'm alone in the dark
So strike me a match of my own


Sunrise, Sunset

Sunrise, Sunset
Sunrise, Sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise, Sunset
Sunrise, Sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

Sunrise, Sunset
Sunrise, Sunset


To Life

To life, to life, L'chaiim
L'chaiim, L'chaiim, to life
Life has a way of confusing us
Blessing and bruising us
Drink L'chaiim
