Anyone know the name of it? I was looking for it on youtube. The one with all the Jewish names that some British guy did a year or so ago.September 13, 2011 7:16 pm at 7:16 pm #1218858
This is an older one:
PEANUT BUTTER, POPPY, PRUNE, OR CHOCOLATE HAMENTASHEN
to the tune of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious by R. M. Sherman & R. B. Sherman
words by Erik Contzius
Peanut Butter, Poppy, Prune, or Chocolate Hamentashen
Peanut Butter, Poppy, Prune, or Chocolate Hamentashen!
When I was just a little kid, a long long time ago
The month Adar had just come in, but how was I to know
that there was such a holiday with food I would sequester
That yummy treat I love to eat when reading about Esther
The first time that I saw these things, triangular in shape,
Their smell was oh, so heavenly that there was no escape
I took a bite, my appetite just grew and grew and grew
Without Oznei Haman and Purim, oh what would I do?
and ya know, you COULD say it Dociousaliexpeeistic-califragirupus, but that would be going a bit too far, wouldn’t you say? indubidoubly!September 13, 2011 7:18 pm at 7:18 pm #1218859TheGoqParticipant

how do men know the tune for Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?February 23, 2017 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm #1218867MenoParticipant
Once a woman played it on a piano for a man (from behind a mechitza), and he handed down the mesorahFebruary 23, 2017 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm #1218868
So it’s probably so off tune by now.February 23, 2017 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #1218869Shopping613 🌠Participant
Where can I hear this?February 23, 2017 10:52 pm at 10:52 pm #1218870
They are baalei teshuva. They used to be MO, but then they started posting in the CR and quickly realized the error of their ways, so they decided to learn full-time in between posting in the CR and joined a kollel for guys who used to be OTD but now smoke instead of watching movies.February 23, 2017 11:36 pm at 11:36 pm #1218871the_shverMember
it’s also possible that their wives sang it to them, (can these threads have some dan likaf zichus every once in a while???)February 24, 2017 12:03 am at 12:03 am #1218872
the_shver: shkoyach! That’s a good limud zchus! I guess no one thought of it. I think the person who asked did so because she was assuming there was a good answer and that someone would come up with it.
And you see she was right!!!
Now how is that for being “dan l’kaf zchus”!February 24, 2017 2:23 am at 2:23 am #1218873
Yays!February 24, 2017 5:50 pm at 5:50 pm #1218874
Lilmod: why must you always dig so deep as to why I ask my questions??
Rephrase: how would an orphaned single, ffb guy with no sisters know the song Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?February 25, 2017 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #1218875WinnieThePoohParticipant
He heard it as a young child before the issur of kol isha applied and remembered it to this day.
Actually, I know the song and I don’t think I have heard it since my young childhood.February 26, 2017 1:24 am at 1:24 am #1218876
He heard it from Dick Van Dike… Muttar because a man was singing itFebruary 26, 2017 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm #1218877
Hashem is reading – huh? I felt like someone was attacking you (by assuming that your question was meant rhetorically and you were criticizing the men who knew the song), so I defended you and “daned you l’kaf zchus” by assuming that you were simply asking a question (not as a rhetorical question) and not being critical.
But if you don’t like being defended or judged favorably, I will try to remember not to do so in the future.
And btw, from the fact that you rephrased your question, it sounds like I was right, so I don’t know what you’re upset about. If you had meant it as a rhetorical question, there would be no reason to rephrase it.
