Sing to the tune of Jacob and sons from Joseph and Technicolor Dreamcoat:
Way, way back many centuries ago,
Not long after the Haggadah began,
There were 4 kids in the land of Canaan
Born to a Jewish family man
A wise child and a difficult one,
One who was simple and one who was young (x2)
The wise one asked about all the mitzvoth
To find out the meaning of what Moses’ wrote
His dad told him all about the laws and customs
That God commanded us to do in Shmot
The difficult one was next in line
She asked “what business is this of mine?”
She was told because God had saved us
And if she was there, she’d think it was fine
The simple son simply said “what is this?”
I don’t understand, it’s the point I miss
Because God freed us with a mighty hand
With miracles that make up a very long list
The young one was last but she didn’t talk
Should couldn’t ask a question, could barely walk
To her we explain that the Seder we do
Is part of thanking God for being a Jew
