Take a good look, here's a couple of Jews,
No doubt they are in the middle of a schmooze,
Talking about the Torah, its don'ts and its do's,
The latest pashkvil or what they heard on the news.
Nu, gib a kik, here's a couple of Jews,
They wear dark clothes and chapeaux of various hues,
Sometimes white stockings stick out of their shoes,
It's a free country and they dress as they choose.
In the middle of davenning they enter in twos,
One sticks out his hand, "Tzedaka" he coos,
Startled I muse, this isn't a ruse,
And it's really not nice for me to refuse.
Nebbech, some people don't like Jews,
Hebrews give them a case of the blues,
Or they blow a fuse, their mind they lose,
Poor things, they're missing a few screws.
Now that you've read my poem about Jews,
You probably want to send me catcalls and boos,
But I'm a Jew and I've paid my dues,
So I'll just go and take a snooze.
