Pesach Filk!

Er, I usually do a round-up post first, but this is very last minute.

Here are two songs for this year.

The Unicorn Song is missing a verse (the second last), that I just ran out of time.
And Iris was inspired by getting high on cleansers.


So:


Windex
To Iris - By the Goo Goo Dolls

I feel like I've been cleaning forever
But I know that we'll make it somehow
It's the closest to Godliness that I've ever known
But I don't really feel free right now.

And all I can smell is this Windex
And all I can breath now is bleach
I don't think we should combine cleansers
Hey why does Tide taste like peach?

And I'd try to get to Har HaBayit
But I don't think that they'd understand
My Korach is missing that something
Just want to have some sacrificial lamb

And you can't scrub the stains that aren't chametz
'Cause the moment of truth will arrive
The kids are watching Passover movies
But yeah they scream so you know they're alive

And I'd try to get to Har HaBayit
But I don't think that they'd understand
My Korach is missing that something
Just want to have some sacrificial lamb

... I just want to have some sacrificial lamb




Afikoman
To The Unicorn Song by Shel Silverstein (Irish Rovers)

A long time ago before we were free
Pharoah enslaved Jews just like you and me
We suffered so greatly under his reign
And now we sit here and remember that pain
with
Green leafy lettuce and white sticks too
Sweet charoset and the YOCHLUHU!
With Cosot-Makot-She'elot, but before we are done
We can't forget the Afikoman.

The Lord heard our cries and they gave Him grief
He said from the bush "I'm gonna send relief"
He said "Moshe go and topple that dictator "
... but you won't be mentioned at the the Seder
They'll have

Green leafy lettuce and the white sticks too
Some Sweet charoset and the YOCHLUHU!
Cosot-Makot-She'elot, but we won't be done
Till we can find the Afikoman.

Egypt suffered from blood, lice, and frogs
Locusts, boils, darkness, and wild dogs
But Pharoah finally gave up, was so forlorn
When Hashem came down and slayed his first born
... But

We've got green leafy lettuce and white sticks too
Some Sweet charoset and the YOCHLUHU!
Cosot-Makot-She'elot, but the simple son
Just stepped on the Afikoman

Well out in the desert the Jews complained
"No food! No water! It barely rained!"
But Moshe told them to trust the Holy One
And down from the sky there came delicious Maan.
And it tasted like
Green leafy lettuce and the white sticks too
Some Sweet charoset and the YOCHLUHU!
Cosot-Makot-She'elot, and lastly some
Tasted like the Afikoman.
