    A thread was started yesterday about The Purim (urim) Story (ory).

    I thought I would start one for all the other wonderful old story tapes from our childhood. To list a few:

    • Marvelous Middos Machine
    • When Zaidy Was Young
    • The Talking Coins
    • The Golden Crown

    When my sisters used to get on my nerves I used to say The Golden Crown. I know the whole thing by heart! That would be enought to stop them. I love those tapes.

    rember the number of the street, west 60, were we are to be the corner the corner…..the number your calling from….is the reason we need to know..

    Jax,

    A few corrections.

    Its

    THE NAME AND number of your street, 250 west 60,

    Where we are to be (they switched off here between the corner the corner and the lobby the corner) the number your calling from AND the reason we need to come.

    🙂

    Of course it counts.

    Anyways, moving along.

    How about Marvelous Middos Machine?

    Name a song and I’ll pop out the lyrics. I grew up on MMM.

    Uhhhh, don’t you have to put in the plug?

    This is the evil in me. 😉 I’ll get this song in everyones head for the remainder, (almost nothing) of the day, with any luck it’ll stick until tomorrow.

    Kol yisrael chaveirim,

    we’re all in the same boat,

    If someone drills a little hole, then none of us can float.

    So whether you are from Tucson, or you come from Timbuktu,

    We are still responsible, for every other Jew.

    (start again) Kol yisrael chaveirim…

    rats, it backfired…

    anyone know where its from?

    When I was younger, many, many,….. years ago, the tape I listened to was Yanky and Shabbos. The Challah lady, Rev up your Engines. “Oh, when I grow up no matter what life brings, Hashem will give me the strength I need to handle it, and I will walk by the light of a thousand friday nights and the tefillos of my mother who, always had her candles lit.” Erev Shabbos, you may find me singing these songs. And lets not forget the 613 Torah Avenue cassettes/cd’s are all classics.

    kapusta, its “Areivim”, not “Chaveirim”.

    No wonder Areivimzehlazeh left, how insulting!

    And I believe it’s from Where’s Zaidy?

    goody613 –

    As promised

    I met my good friend Mr. Katz yesterday,

    He looked all upset, so I started to say

    Things can’t be so bad, why are you so sad,

    You better tell me right away

    I’d be just as happy as I was before,

    If only I listened and trusted you more

    I ignored your advice, now I’m, paying the price

    I went with all of my kids TO A STORE!

    You went to a store with your girls and your boys?

    And it was a big store, a store filled with toys,

    But I warned you not, I know I forgot,

    Oy it was a day that I did not enjoy

    I know just what happened don’t tell me a thing

    I know cause I took my kids the last spring

    When they got to the store and walked through the door

    All of your kinderlach started to SING

    We want Lego and Construx

    And a hockey set deluxe

    We want baseballs we want bats

    We want helmets we want hats

    Like I said to you before, never take kids to a store,

    All your gonna hear is, we want more and more

    Tatty there’s a pretty doll with shiny golden hair,

    I’m sorry little shayfela am I a Millionaire?

    You already have that train, I know it works just fine,

    But look it’s such a bargain only $19.99

    We want cars and trucks you see,

    And of course Monopoly,

    See this camera it’s so nice

    Look it’s made by Fisher Price

    Like I said to you before, never take kids to a store,

    All your gonna hear is, we want more and more

    Why do you need that Care Bear There’s one at home I think,

    But Tatty that one’s Yellow and this one is Pink

    Do you see this storybook it’s something that I need,

    I’d love to buy it Shmully, BUT YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO READ!

    We want robots that can talk

    And animals that walk

    We want checkers we want chess,

    WE WON’T EVER LEAVE A MESS

    Like I said to you before, never take kids to a store,

    All your gonna hear is, we want more and more

    They were crying, they were shouting, why i’ll bet one even screamed

    And you wisped, please be quiet, you don’t want to make a scene

    So you bought them all you wanted, more then you can afford,

    And an hour after you got home, they said…. TATTY WE ARE BORED

    But kids who have good middos, are simply not that way

    They learn how to appreciate whatever comes their way

    And you can even disregard all that I’ve said before

    And let them come along with you

    When – you – go – to – a – store.

    I always felt that if Mr. Katz (of Katz’s Vedding ConSULteeng Aigencee) would learn to be “a little bit more modest” himself, it is likely that his kids would not behave that way.

    middos are the way we act and how we think and feel, the Torah tells us just what we should do… so if you want to do whats right and really be a mench, you’ve got to have good middos through and through…

    Midvar sheker tirchak never tell a lie, Hashem knows just what happened theres no reason to denie, honesty is emes, make sure all your words are true, so tatty, mommy and Hashem will be so proud of you.

    up up and away, oh what a special day dr middos has invented something you have never seen. up up and away, oh what a special day, its the absolutely marvelous middos machine.

    I’m on a roll here… if you pass by anyone on the street humming one of these, introduce yourself!
