    Inspired by the Ride the Train thread.

    In the song “The Artist” (Sheves Achim 2), there’s one part that goes:

    “But instead of replying the artist just smiled/

    And whispered “My friend, say no more,” “

    Well, if he’s whispering, isn’t that a reply?

    Also, in Baruch learns about Shabbos, I never understood one line. There’s a whole song about things he wouldn’t do because its Shabbos, and then he says:

    “I will not milk a cow/

    I don’t even know how”

    Well then it has nothing to do with keeping Shabbos. He’s not milking a cow, because he doesn’t know how to. Not because he’s keeping Shabbos. I have never built a rocket on Shabbos. Not because its Shabbos, because I wouldn’t have a clue how to do it. I’ve never built a rocket on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday either. Same thing. (Yes I am probably taking this way too seriously 🙂 )


    It’s because he davka didn’t learn how milk a cow, because it’s something that is assur to do on shabbos and he didn’t want to know how to do assur things.


    also – I don’t know how many people remember this song since its not so new, but in the song “The Dove” (Shloime Dachs):

    “The sun breaks through the clouds/

    The mother dove is proud/

    Her heart is filled with joy/

    As she looks with affection at her boy, so pure and white/

    Against the black of night”

    But if the sun is breaking through the clouds, doesn’t that suggest that it’s day?
