Veren zol fun dir blintsa

(How ya doin' Bernie?) Oy vey, oy vey!
(How ya doin' Bernie?) Oy vey, oy vey!
(How ya doin' Bernie?) Oy vey, oy vey!
And all the goyim say I'm pretty fly for a rabbi.

Meccha leccha hi, meccha hiney ho

Our temple's had a fair share of rabbi's in the past
but most of 'em were nudniks and none of them would last.
But our new guy's real kosher, I think he'll do the trick
I tell ya, he's to die for he really knows his shtick

So how's by you? Have you seen this Jew?
Reads the Torah, does accounting too
Workin' like a dog at the synagogue
He's there all day, he's there all day
Just say "Vay iz mir" and he'll kick it in gear
He'll bring you lots of cheer and maybe bagels with some shmeer
Just grab your yarmulka and
Hey! Hey! Do that Hebrew thing!

(How ya doin' Bernie?) Oy vey, oy vey!
(How ya doin' Bernie?) Oy vey, oy vey!
(How ya doin' Bernie?) Oy vey, oy vey!
And all the goyim say I'm pretty fly (for a rabbi.)

He shops at discount stores, not just any will suffice
He has to find a bargin cause he won't pay retail price
He never acts meshugga and he's hardly a schlemiel
But if you want to haggle, oy, he'll make you such a deal!

People used to scoff, now they say "Mazel Tov!"
He's such a macher 'cause he worked his tuchis off
Yeah he keeps his coll and teaches shul
What's not to like? What's not to like?
On high holy days, you know he prays and prays
and he never eats pastrami on white bread with mayonnaise
Put on your yarmulka and
Hey! Hey! Do that Hebrew thing!

When he's doing a Bar Mitzvah, now that you shouldn't miss
He'll always shlep on down for a wedding or a briss
They say he's got a lot of chutzpah, he's really quite hhhhip
the parents pay the moyl and he gets to keep the tip

(How ya doin' Bernie?) Oy vey, oy vey!
(How ya doin' Bernie?) Oy vey, oy vey!
(How ya doin' Bernie?) Oy vey, oy vey!

Meccha leccha hi, meccha meccha cholly ho

He's doin' well, I've gotta kvell
The yentas love him, even shickas think he's swell
Show up at his home, he says "Shalom!"
And "have some cake -- you want some cake?"
Yeah, he calls the shots, we love him lots
OY gevalt, I'm so ferklempt that I could plotz
So grab your yarmulka --
The one you got for Chanukah --
Let's put on our yarmulkas and --
Hey! Hey! Do that Hebrew thing!
