The Ballad of Mo Amramson


(sung to the tune of "The Ballad of Jed Clampett")

  

Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Mo,
His people they were slaves to the evil Pharoah,
Until one day he was lookin' at a bush,
And he heard the voice of G-d, though he wasn't a lush---
 The LORD, that is,
   I AM,
     The Big G.

Next thing you know, Mo's talkin' to Pharoah,
Mo says, "G-d said you gotta let my people go!"
But the king says, "No, they always will be slaves to me!"
So God sent down ten big plagues on Pharoah's whole country---
 Blood 'n frogs, that is,
   Pestilence,
     Special effects.
	When the first borns died, Pharoah sent the Jews away,
They ran and ate some matza on that very happy day,
So now we have our Seder to commemorate that feat---
We drink some wine and talk a lot, we sing and also eat!
 Matza, that is,
   Maror too.
     And good food.

      Y'all come back now, y'hear!
