    It’s published in the 1980’s, with cute rhymes like those of Mother Goose, only with good messages.

    Like,

    Shuly had a parah aduma, a parah aduma, a parah aduma,

    Shuly had a parah adume, its hair was red you know.

    Shuly let it play all day, play all day, play all day

    Shuly let it play all day, red cows don’t work you know.

    They make our people pure again, pure again, pure again,

    They make our people pure again, learn Torah and you’ll know.

    Pinchas the pious picked the proper person to punish and for his performance, Pinchas was presented with the present of perfect peace.

    The Yiddishe neshama is a merry old soul, a merry old soul is she

    She calls for return, for Mitzvos she does yearn, then she’s as merry as can be

    To shul to shul, three times a day, that’s the way we ought to pray. To shul to shul, to daven with ten, tomorrow I’ll see you in shul again.

    The one I am looking for is this one:

    Bakbuk, bakbuk, have you any wine,

    yes sir yes sir four cups fine,

    one for _______, one for ______, one for redeeming and one for ____

    Eliyahu’s kos we’re also saving

    Bakbuk, bakbuk, have you any wine, yes sir yes sir five cups fine.

    Bookworm: I’ll let you know if I do! Here are a few more:

    Little Menachem Warner, sitting in his corner, learning Mishnayos all day.

    Twas no one’s suprise, when he won the grand prize, at the Mishnayos contest in May.

    What are Jewish girls made of? What are Jewish girls made of? Chesed and tznius and everything zee-us (sweet), that’s what Jewish girls are made of. What are Jewish boys made of? What are Jewish boys made of? Torah and Yiras Hashem and good Middos to go with them, that’s what Jewish boys are made of.

    Rockabye baby, close your little eyes, Hashem loves you more than you can realize. SO grow to be true, with TOrah your guide, oh Rockabye baby you are my pride.

    Not to insult anyone but the first rhyme may sound like we are praising the cow for doing no work and that laziness can purify us.
