Lyrics Edit

I'm sure you all remember us, the bums from the east-side
Well, now we learn in kollel, though we're pushing forty-five
We each have lots of children, and loads of bills to pay
No one's into baseball, all we do is shteig all day

Rebbe used to teach us Torah each and every day
We opened up our eyes and ears to everything he'd say
And thanks to him we're learned, virtuous, and wise
But one thing is for certain, we don't get much exercise

A short time after Pesach, a note came in the mail
It was from those boys from Brooklyn who'd since moved to Riverdale
They said "we can't get over how we lost to you that way
And we're calling for a rematch on Lag Ba'Omer day" (oy vey)

When Lag Ba'Omer came around, it was time to play that game
Oh how we davened extra hard, prayed it would rain
All nine of us got on the bus with our Bufferin and Bengay
Rebbe also came along with his jacket, tie, and cane

Rebbe used to teach us Torah each and every day
We opened up our eyes and ears to everything he'd say
And thanks to him we're learned, virtuous, and wise
But one thing is for certain, we don't get much exercise

Those guys showed up at the park looking trim and fit
And it sure didn't take too long to see, they still could hit
Doubles, triples, home runs, they knocked the ball about
Why, they'd scored twenty-seven runs and nobody was out

There were two outs in the fifth, boy were we ashamed
Just one more out would make it an official game
With two strikes on our batter, we realized this was it
When faintly Rebbe cried out, "let me pinch-hit"


"What could our dear rebbe do?" Each one of us was wondering
When suddenly, the sky got dark, a-lightning and a-thundering
It started pouring cats and dogs, the field turned into mud
The umpire cried, "this game is called on account we've got a flood!"

Rebbe used to teach us Torah each and every day
We opened up our eyes and ears to everything he'd say
And thanks to him we're learned, virtuous, and wise
And we all signed up at the Kosher Gym, (separate days for men and women of course,) to get our exercise
