Can we turn this thread into “Wacky Rhymy Thingys” (which pop into our heads when we’re either with our kids or stam hyper)?
Hook and I went for a walk
Hook and I had a nice talk
Hook and I decided to buy
A hook and eye-
What a surprise!
(This ingenious poem(?) was inspired tonight by my daughter’s discovery of the brand new hook and eye on my bedroom door.)March 4, 2010 4:35 am at 4:35 am #713835
tomim tihye, your nuts!!!March 4, 2010 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm #713836
Yeah, thanks to my kids. But, HA, look who’s talking!March 4, 2010 10:48 pm at 10:48 pm #713837
I came up with this song:
TTTO: I Love You from my best friend Barney!!!
I like dogs,
I like cats,
I am scared of flying bats.
With a great big ROAR (make real lion sound)
From a lion or two,
We had fun
(yell:) AT THE ZOO!!!
Its a great song to get the whole family into on the way back from the zoo on (Wednesday) Chol HaMoed!
Composed by: d aMarch 4, 2010 10:51 pm at 10:51 pm #713838
How about this one:
TTTO Chag Purim or Purim Day, Purim Day
Purim Day, Purim Day,
we get lots of tummy aches,
it doesn’t rhyme,
but that is fine,
cause its Purim Day.
Lets eat some candy, yum yum yum.
Lets drink some wine, gulp gulp gulp.
Lets have a party, munch munch munch
On Purim Day!!!
Composed by: yitz711March 4, 2010 10:55 pm at 10:55 pm #713839
On Purim, I ran around Flatbush, singing:
TTTO: I am a Gummy Bear or Lipa’s Ich Hub Ah Teddy Bear
I have a sippy cup, a tzippy sippy cup, a sippy tzippy sippy sippy sippy cup…March 4, 2010 10:56 pm at 10:56 pm #713840
Now, THAT’S a song! Too bad no Wed Chol Hamoed coming up. Maybe we should get membership and go Thurs just to sing this song!March 4, 2010 11:00 pm at 11:00 pm #713841
I went with a special ed school to the zoo and sang it on the way back. The bus was going wild!!!
Thanks to BFM for the idea to the song (she was trying to write a book and I ended up composing that song!)March 5, 2010 12:39 am at 12:39 am #713842
Just out of curiosity, do any other people make up wacky songs? If yeah, post them!March 5, 2010 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm #713843
I’ve been singing this nightly to my kids for years.
TTO: “You Are My Sunshine”
I love my cutie pies
My special kinderlach
I am so happy
To be with them
For (fill in all names)
Every day I say thank you to Hashem!
(I overheard my 4-year old singing this to calm the baby!)March 5, 2010 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm #713844
I wasn’t sure what tune “You Are My Sunshine” is (I’m a frummy!) so I searched it and to let you know that that is also a tune to Modeh AniSeptember 16, 2010 4:29 am at 4:29 am #713845
To the person who asked how much songs go for…it’s really your call,it’s intellectual property,so it depends if you are giving the person permanent ownership of the song or just permission to sing it. it depends if you are also giving an original tune,etc.for years i sold my stuff for practically nothing.i now see it all depends how much you feel it’s worth and how important it is to you to either just get your song out there for the publicity or if you’re willing to hold out for a great deal.by the way about 20 years ago i had the privilege of writing a song for michoel streicher.(wasn’t a hit,but fun to sing)the tune was borrowed from one of his sources.September 16, 2010 8:04 am at 8:04 am #713846emoticon613Member
what? i thought everyone knows you are my sunshine!September 16, 2010 12:43 pm at 12:43 pm #713848
huh?November 20, 2010 11:42 pm at 11:42 pm #713849
I have been posting on the limerick thread but for some reason this parody popped into my head over the past couple of days and I cannot stop singing it.
Yankel Dovid (to the tune of Yankee Doodle)
Yankel Dovid went to town
To buy a new menorah
Was so proud of what he’d done
He had to dance a hora.
Yankel Dovid doodle-do
Yankel dressed so dandy
But like many Jewish men
Around the house – not handy.
Yankel bought mezzuzot new
To place upon his doorpost
After hammering his thumb
His project – it became toast. (chorus)
Yankel told his shaina veib
So long, I will see ya
Have to be at shul on time
I’m honored with aliyah. (chorus)
Yankel went up on his roof
His ladder was not sturdy
Now his leg is in a cast
The sight it isn’t purty. (chorus)
Yankel’s learned his place his shul
It is where he’s most handy
And on Shabbat he loves his job
He gives the kids some candy. (chorus)November 21, 2010 12:36 pm at 12:36 pm #713850
This silly song will NOT leave my head and new verses keep popping in. I am adding 3 more and I invite you all to post more. It is very easy and we can make this the longest song ever written.
Yankel’s wife she said to him
Hock mir nisht a chainek
Go and see the eineklech
Especially the kleinek. (chorus)
Yankel bought a bicycle
So he could be more greener
After wobbling he fell
His suit’s now by the cleaner. (chorus)
Yankel joined the frummer gym
So he could be more fitter
Wrenched his back in traction now
His shul needs a pinch hitter. (chorus)November 21, 2010 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm #713851
here is a chorus to a ballad i wrote a few months ago:
Good times,right around the corner
Good times,right around the bend
Good times,may be on the way so-
Don’t give up-it ain’t the end.
Please do not plagerize(however you spell it).it’s invisible gezel.
i’m posting it cuz the words should give chizuk.sorry can’t give you “to the tune of”- it’s original.November 22, 2010 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm #713852
More Yankel Dovid
Yankel’s fetter Pinchus came
To spend a Yontiff freilach
They drank so much that when they danced
It was with Elimelech. (chorus)
Yankel’s wife she said to him
You are a bissel tippish
You got confused and you have done
Birchot before the Kiddush. (chorus)
Yankel lay upon his bed
To chup little dremmel
Woke with a start when by his side
A vision of Avremel. (chorus)
Yankel told his little boy
Go find the affikomen
Tatty that will be next month
Tonight it’s about Haman. (chorus)November 23, 2010 4:24 pm at 4:24 pm #713853
Minyan- oh wow i am laughinhg so hard! Amazing talent, i dont think im as good as you. Right now i cant think of anything yet but i”h ill put sometthig in!November 23, 2010 6:42 pm at 6:42 pm #713854

Yankel Dovid went to shul
To perfect his kriya
His concentration was intense
He missed his fourth aliyaNovember 24, 2010 12:08 pm at 12:08 pm #713855
Blinky, thanks. It is terrific – made me laugh out loud, which is a rare thing for me to do while sitting alone at my computer. I don’t know what made me think of the darn thing in the first place. On Saturday I kept thinking of new verses and because I couldn’t write them down until after dark, I had to keep singing them so I wouldn’t forget the words. More verses may be coming.November 24, 2010 3:39 pm at 3:39 pm #713856
minyan- dont ask, last night just as i was going to sleep the tune was in my head! Glad you liked it, ill try to think of more I”H.November 24, 2010 5:53 pm at 5:53 pm #713857
I’m so glad that this thread was revived. I was thinking of a new thread similar to this, just this morning, and your line (the tune was in my head) gave me the push to post it.November 24, 2010 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #713858
minyan- here is another one, both lines rhyme:)
Yankel Dovid walked through town
Quiet and very eidel
All the time his head was down
And bumped right into a meidel OUCH!November 24, 2010 11:19 pm at 11:19 pm #713859
Here is today’s contribution.
Yankel thought he should be asked
To Kate and Willie”s wedding
When no invite from the Queen arrived
He said she’s old and she’s forgetting.
Yankel and his wife went out
To do a little fressin’
When he saw the menu’s price
He said – just drinks, no essen.
Yankel took a holiday
He went to see Las Vegas
When he returned he wept and said
It should be called Lost Wages.
Yankel thought he’d help his wife
He tried to set the table
Knives on left, forks to the right
He really wasn’t able.
Yankel met with the Chazzan
For help with his Haftorah
When he was done the Chazzan said
You’re great – kein ein a hora.
Yankel opened up his door
There stood old Auntie Fruma
The look upon his face said all
He wished t’were cousin Bluma.
Yankel told his buddy Abe
I’m going to leig tefillin
Wrapped too tight, his arm turned blue
Removed before Tehillim.November 24, 2010 11:20 pm at 11:20 pm #713860
very funny!November 25, 2010 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #713861
Minyan- i made these up last night (some in the shower:) let me know what you think.
Yankele dons his shluff kappel
Gutte nacht he wishes everyone
He starts to lein kriyas shema
But is asleep before he’s done.
In the morgen he awakes (chorus)
Modeh ani he does does pray
neggel vasser does come next
to start off the new day.
After davening Yankele learns
he shteigs for very long
miishnayos and gemara
And studies right from wrong.
At 12 noon his boich is empty (chorus)
He needs a burst of koach
His aishes chayil made him lunch
To start again his moach.
When the Tag comes to a close
He walks back to his house
He feeds and bathes his kinderlach
And spends time with his spouse.
Yankele wants to sleep again (chorus)
And end this silly rhyme
It was very fun to write
Maybe more next tome!!!!
P.S. please excuse my yiddish i hope it makes sense!!!November 26, 2010 8:36 pm at 8:36 pm #713862
BPT: Thank you very much (taking a bow).
Blinquie: Using your more formal name in honor of Shabbat. Your verses are terrific. Amazing how the tune sticks, isn’t it. I have a bunch of new verses but no time to post now, so will wait until motzie Shabbat.
And again, Shabbat Shalom to all.November 29, 2010 4:41 pm at 4:41 pm #713863
You’re welcome,MG. But to be honest, the compliment was for Blinky’s “Yankee doodle” post.
But I liked your too!
Here’s my shot (ttto “I’m a little tea pot”)
I’m a kalla maidel
Sweet and smart
Temimusdik from end to start
My bahsert will be here any day
I’H without delay!November 29, 2010 5:54 pm at 5:54 pm #713864
More Yankel Dovid
Yankel bid Chavah adieu
I’m off to pick up Maish
We thought that for a little change
We’ll daven heint by Aish.
Yankels on a diet strict
But he wants a meichel
Wheres Chavelah I know she hides
The halvah in her teichel.
Yankels on the floor again
He slipped while doing dishes
A better sense of balance
Should be one of his big wishes.
Yankel’s little girl grew up
Today she is a kallah
First he’ll walk her down the aisle
Then he’ll bentch the challah.
Yankel thought he’d paint the fence
It had started peeling
His wife said “practice first on that”
Then you can do the ceiling.
Yankel and his wife looked out
Upon their lovely garden
He said “if we were only French
It would be called a jardin.”
Yankel bought some boimel pure
So he could light menorahs
His wife said “we’ll use e-lec-tric
I don’t want any tsorres.”
Yankels a poor handyman
He’s not a Mr. Fix-it.
He didn’t know that when you paint
First you have to mix it.
Yankel thought he’d learn to skate
And efsher play some hockey
His balance poor, he slipped, he fell
His future’s looking rocky.
Yankel needs to lose some weight
His booch keeps getting bigger
Of course he blamed it all upon
The cooking of his shvigger.November 29, 2010 6:53 pm at 6:53 pm #713865
“I’m a kalla maidel”– BPT really? And thanx for the compliment:)
Heres an addition to yours:
A kalla meidel
thats me stam
he has to be kind
and have some ta’am
Emunah and bitachon keeps me going
So for good news i am hoping
Minyan- really good!!!! I like the tichel one and the shvigger!November 30, 2010 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm #713866
The Last of Yankel Dovid
Yankel went to see his doc
He wasn’t feeling chipper
The doctor said there’s nothing wrong
You’ll recover by Yom Kippur.
Yankel’s lawyer called him up
And said there is some trouble
Your accountant’s gone to jail
And now you must pay double.
Yankel bought a clarinet
He wants to be a klezmer
When he played they sighed
But they really meant oy veiz mir.
Yankel’s tooth se toot him vay
His head is just a klupping
He doesn’t have a dentist
So for one he must go shopping.
Yankel went to Glasgow town
He wants to buy a kilt
He located Jewish tartan
And his kilt can now be built.
(btw – there actually IS a Jewish tartan – designed by a Chabad Rabbi and approved by the official tartan society. See it on
Yankel said he’d help his wife
He tried to wash the dishes
She inspected and replied
“There’s remnants from the knishes.”
Yankel signed an IOU
So money he could borrow
On the day the note was due
He said “I’ll pay tomorrow.”
Yankel loves to get down low
And play with kleine kinder
And if you cannot love him now
You really are a blinder.
Yankel davens with delight
He knows Hashem can hear him
His kavanah is truly great
It is what does endear him.
Yankel says his song is done
He’s told his long sad story
A man with little mazel
But a neshamah filled with glory.November 30, 2010 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #713867jhcvivgwryParticipant
I think this thread should be called “Yankel Dovid composed songs” 🙂
