Let My People Go

When Israel was in Egypt land,

Let my people go.

Oppressed so hard they could not stand,

Let my people go.

Go down, Moses, way down to Egypt land.

Tell Old Pharaoh, to let my people go.

     “Thus saith the Lord,” old Moses said.

“Let my people go!”

“If not I’ll smite your first born dead.

Let my people go.”

Go down, Moses, way down to Egypt land.

Tell Old Pharaoh, to let my people go.

Les MisElijah

(to the tune of “Do you haer the people sing” from Les Miserables)

Do you hear the doorbell ring,

And it’s a little after ten?

It can only be Elijah

Come to take a sip again.

He is feeling pretty fine

But in his head a screw is loose.

So perhaps instead of wine

We should only give him juice.

That’s a Matzah!

(to the tune of “That’s Amore”)

When your bread doesn’t bake

And it’s not a mistake,

That’s a matzah!

When it breaks in your hand

Just like hard grains of sand

That’s a matzah!

We recline… and we talk about Moses.

We drink wine… and eat lots of charoses.

Sephardic Jews think it’s nice to

eat greens beans and rice

With their Matzah.

Ashkenazi Jews say we should stay far away

from those foods-ah.

Keeping track of the rules

Is so crazy that you

Could just PLOTZ-A!

But one food’s always right

On this Passover night,

That’s a matzah!

“No”

(to the tune of “No” by Meghan Trainor)

Pharaoh: I think it’s so cute and I think it’s so sweet

How you let your “god” encourage you to try and talk to me

But let me stop you there, Moe, before you speak

Chorus: Moshe: My God said

Pharaoh: No

Moshe: His sign is

Pharaoh: No

Moshe: Plagues number

Pharaoh: No

Moshe: You need to let us go

(You) need to let us go

Yud to the HEH said

Pharaoh: No, No, No!

Pharaoh: First you gonna say you ain’t runnin’

Game, thinkin’ I’ll believe in your Lord

Call me tyrannical, so terrible, telling me

This new God runs the world

Slaves were building homes before you

came along, now I’m thinking maybe you

won’t go

Blood, blood, blood, I be like what? Build

With mud, straw’s a no no no

Chorus: Pharaoh: All my salvies, listen up

If that Moe ain’t givin’ up

Bake your bricks, but bring your flax

Cause all I’ve got to say is…

Moshe: My God said

Pharaoh: No

Moshe: His sign is

Pharaoh: No

Moshe: Plagues number

Pharaoh: No

Moshe: You need to let us go

(You) need to let us go

Yud to the HEY said

Pharaoh: No, No, No!

Hey There Elijah

(to the tune of “Hey There Delilah” by the Plain White T’s)

Hey there Elijah

What’s it like at all those Seders

You will drink a lot of wine tonight

But tonight you are permitted, yes you are

We can’t continue without you

Oh yes it’s true.

Hey there Elijah

We believe you’ll be here someday

And will bring the world together

Give us hope for what the future will provide

Hear our prayers and our cries

You’re by our side

Chorus: Oh, it’s what you mean to us (x4)

What you mean to us

Hey there Elijah

Share your vision of the world to be

Where God is one for everyone

And Seders ‘round the world are being done

Next year may we all celebrate,

In Jerusalem.

Hey there Elijah

With our friends and family gathered here

Just as they do year after year

Now we have only one task left to do

You know it’s all because of you

We open our door to welcome you

Hey there Elijah, here’s to you

This cup’s for you

Oh, it’s what you mean to us (x4)

What you mean to us
