    @haleivi: Actually on Rabbeinu Yona (Avos) to “Asu syag latorah”, among other collected Rishonim.

    @ultimateskier: I think I wrote the first line for The Chumrah Song about a day or two after The Aveirah Song came out. So, thanks for reading MY mind!

    @popa and Oomis, thanks for the support 🙂

    Day One: White List the YWN Coffee Room on my filter,after loooong break.

    Day One: (5 minutes later) Comment on Aveira Song.

    There is a lot of talent amongst these fellows.However, certain phrases will stay in people’s heads that will not increase their love and respect for mitzvos…in fact, one word of (sarcastic) laytzonus can push away a whole lot of (positive) mussar.

    It made me sad to watch that video. Sad, because it became popular so fast. You guys are usually funny…but when all eyes are upon you,there must be “damage control”.

    Playtime, here

    Lyrics:

    Every song needs an introduction… because…

    CHORUS

    A song without an introduction,

    Is like chicken soup without no lukshen,

    My producer just looked at me and nodded,

    I think he wants me to get started.

    Testing, testing, aintz tzvai, drai

    I eat a gid hanasheh every bite,

    I put on my left shoe before my right,

    You think I don’t do aveiros? Don’t even wonder,

    I never make a brucheh when I hear the thunder,

    My wife wears a sheitel, not a tichel,

    I eat the herring without the kichel,

    I drink every night ad delo yudeh,

    I never sing zemiros at the shabbos sudeh,

    I hang around with a goyishe oilem,

    I never do bikur cholim,

    Yeah I hang out with goyim vus iz nisht gemalet,

    I don’t put on my paper, beis samech daled.

    CHORUS

    I spoke to my goyishe friend named Boris,

    He wrote me up this little chorus,

    It breaks up the song so it doesn’t get boring,

    And now we’ll continue with the recording.

    I go to shul and I’m just chillin,

    I only put on one pair of tefillin,

    I never cry when I go to levayos,

    I eat the matzah, less than a kezayis,

    I don’t even care about chulev stam,

    I don’t even like be’er mayim chayim,

    I go to the games with Derek Jeter,

    I always get married during sefira,

    I do aveiros, oid ve’oid,

    I never go on trips on chol hamo’ed,

    I never daven tefillah be’tzibur,

    I listen to the tapes, from Justin Bieber.

    CHORUS

    I cruise around in my ’05 Taurus,

    Blasting out the second chorus,

    I feel like I’m rocking up the whole joint,

    And now we’re at the halfway point.

    I’m such a goy, vus hut du getracht,

    I learn the gantzeh nittel nacht,

    Chassidim and rebbes are not my types,

    I wear the tzitzis without the stripes,

    I always say lashon hara,

    All my friends do avodah zara,

    I’m such a tzioni, I sing Hatikva,

    I don’t even pay when I use the mikva,

    I changed my name to Sam, from Shmuel,

    I don’t even like Eretz Yisrooel,

    I don’t ask for a shidduch when I go to Amukah,

    I give more than a choimesh to tzedukeh,

    I use the Internet for the news,

    I do birkas kohanim with my shoes.

    CHORUS

    Don’t turn it down, don’t ignore us,

    Listen up to the final chorus,

    I haven’t yet showed you all my cards,

    Mir halt shoin by the line fun twenty yards.

    I do shnayim mikra without the targum,

    When I see an Amaleiki I would never harg him,

    I’m the biggest ba’al aveiros in the velt,

    I never give my kids any chanuka gelt,

    My esrog is always full of black dots,

    I always make a brucheh when I wash urchatz,

    I eat in the sukkah on Sh’mini Atzeres,

    I toivel in the mikvah holding a sheretz,

    By Haman’s name I always cheer,

    By shulem zuchers I only drink root beer,

    By the Purim shpiel I never laugh,

    For afikomen I use the smaller half,

    I only drink gimmel koises,

    I eat tons of marror without charoises,

    Rosh Hashana by simanim I eat the shvantz,

    By my chasunah I had an aveirah tantz.

    CHORUS

    Too much of your time I’m already spending,

    So now I’m gonna take you to the ending,

    I hope you like and I hope you enjoy,

    This song about a yid who thinks he’s a goy.

    @playtime: Lev Aryeh is a yeshiva in Jerusalem for English-speaking bachurim between the ages of 17-22.

    We made The Aveirah Song as part of a few videos which we put together for yeshiva’s purim shpiel this year. (One of the others was Things Not To Say On A Shidduch Date, which is also on our channel on YouTube.)

    The positive response we recieved for The Aveirah Song was overwhelming. We toyed with the idea of making a sequel, and after getting many requests for one, we figured it would be a great bein hazmanim project for the bachurim who stayed in Israel for the summer.

    We didn’t make the songs to collect for yeshiva; this project was initiated and spearheaded by the bachurim, and encouraged by the hanhala.

    @temimus I’m the lead singer dude.

    @WIY We suggested it and they encouraged it. It ended up giving Lev Aryeh a lot of publicity.

    @Uri Yes, and thank you!

    @biology Not a chassidish crowd at all. We’re basically a completely Litvishe yeshiva. Though I do daven nusach sfard.

    Lev Aryeh, your songs are really nice, my whole family loves them! But we think that 1. You could not use so many yiddish or hebrew terms that girls have no idea what it means since they dont use it and they dont learn gemara. 2. That you say the words a little clearer. Besides that u guyz ROCK!

    Lines are written over the course of a few weeks, I never really sit down to write. We’re in and out of the studio in 5-6 hours, and we shot over about 5 days.

    I liked it. Especially the bleach and beach parts. It wasn’t quite up to the level of the Aveirah song, but still very funny. Well done.
