Shabat ya paso, buena semana
Shabat ya paso, buena semana
(Sabbath has passed, good week ahead)

Se kazan los árvoles i empesan a salir las primeras flores, las primeras flores
(The trees marry and then the first flowers start to appear)

Happy New Year to the trees
And all you give to us that pleases
Thank you for the flowers and bees
Thank you for the cherries
Thank you for the trees.

Se kazan los árvoles…

Track Name: El Dia de Purim
El Dia De Purim

Today we read the megila
When Mordhay to Aman said ‘nah’
So now we celebrate with hurrah!
La, la, la, la, la, la el dia de Purim
(The day of Purim)

Biva yo, biva el Rey
Bivan todos Israel
Biva la Reyna Ester
Ke mos dyo tanto plazer
(Long life to me, long live the King
Long live all of Israel
Long live Queen Esther
Who gave us so much pleasure)

We love Ester for being brave
For all the Jews that she did save
And for the justice she did pave
La, la, la, la, la, la el dia de Purim

Biva yo, biva el Rey…

Today we eat bureka
And send our friends dulseria
And don’t forget your tzedaka
La, la, la, la, la, la el dia de Purim

Biva yo, biva el Rey…

Wearing masks and silly are we
As we dance all day with glee
Now that we the Jews are free!
La, la, la, la, la, la el dia de Purim

Biva yo, biva el Rey…
Track Name: 8 Days Sephardic
8 Days Sephardic

Prologue:

On Pesach we learn the ancient story
How Moses saved the Jews from slavery

But in their haste, so quickly they fled
So now for 8 days we don’t eat bread

But a question they don’t answer in Sunday school...
On Pesach how do we keep our cool?

-------

Let me tell you a trick, for the 8 days of Pesach be Sephardic!

-------

8 Days oy! Do the arithmetic, and on Pesach be Sephardic!

Rice is fine so hold your chopstick, cuz on Pesach you’re Sephardic!
Chickpeas or lentils take your pick, cuz on Pesach you’re gonna be Sephardic

8 Days oy! Do the arithmetic, and on Pesach be Sephardic!

Don’t let the matzah sit like a brick, cuz on Pesach you’re Sephardic!
Eat your corn and grab your toothpick, cuz on Pesach you’re gonna be Sephardic

8 Days oy! Do the arithmetic, and on Pesach be Sephardic!

Don’t listen to the Passover politic, cuz on Pesach you’re Sephardic!
Be like Moses, be a maverick, cuz on Pesach you’re gonna be Sephardic

8 Days oy! Do the arithmetic, and on Pesach be Sephardic!

No kitniyot, ah fiddlestick! cuz on Pesach you’re Sephardic!
Hands up if you like this limerick, cuz on Pesach you’re gonna be Sephardic

8 Days oy! Do the arithmetic, and on Pesach be Sephardic!
Track Name: La Ketubá De La Ley
La Ketubá De La Ley

La ketubá de la ley
(The marriage contract of the law)
We will cherish you
La Ketubá de la Ley
We will honor you

Los Djudiós resivieron la Torá,
I la muntanya se enfloresio
(When the Jews received the Torah
The mount burst with flowers)

Agora meldamos de la Torá
Por muestra relasión kon el Dió
(Now when we read the Torah
We remember our bond with G-d)

La ketubá de la ley...

Un regalo santo es la Torá
Es yena de sensya i dulsor
(The Torah is a divine gift
Filled with wisdom and sweetness)

Todo está en la Torá
Oy fiestamos su poder
(All is revealed in the Torah
So today we celebrate its power)

Andaremos ande tu andas
La Ley amostra el kamino.
(We will go wherever you go
The Law will lead the way)

La ketubá de la ley...
Track Name: Anyada Buena
Anyada Buena

May your year be sweet,
Komo la miel. (Like the honey)

Ke te desperte el
(And it awakens you)

Anyada buena,
Dulse i alegre.
Seyas bendicho
Seyas kontente.
(A good year,
Sweet and happy.

May you be content.)

Anyada buena…
Track Name: Come Step In My Sukkah
Come Step In My Sukkah

Come step in my sukkah
Come and see the stars
Come and help me decorate
On all the pretty walls

Come step in my sukkah
Come bless the wine with me
Come shake the palm and etrog
And celebrate the bounty

Come step in my sukkah
Come sit at my table
Come enjoy a hearty meal,
All the biscochos you’re able

Come step in my sukkah
Come sing songs all night
Come feel safe and sheltered
And all will be alright.
Track Name: Baylamos
Baylamos

We dance around in circles
Baylamos en sírkolos
Our voices sing out loud
Muy alto kantamos

Aman aman aman aman Simhat Torá

We bless the Torah scrolls
Bendizimos la Torá
And celebrate with joy
Fiestamos kon alegria

Aman aman aman aman Simhat Torá
Track Name: Bimuelo ft. Kosha Dillz
Bimuelo

Bimuelo, bimuelo
You’re more than just fried dough
Bimuelo, bimuelo
Mmmm hello!

Latkes get the credit
Donuts aren’t far behind
But let’s just say there’s an even better treat
That will blow your Hanukkah mind

This Sephardic fried delight
Served sweet and warm
Will guarantee to set on fire your
Hanukkah taste buds alarm

A jelly donut it is not
Won’t find sufganiyot here
But when you fry one on the stove
Grab it fast else they disappear!

You can drizzle it with honey,
Or top it with whipped-cream
Sprinkle on some sugar and cinnamon
You got a Hanukkah treat supreme!

This is no ordinary Hanukkah dessert
You can eat it with rosewater, you can eat it with yogurt!
The miracle of Hanukkah wasn’t oil for the ocho
The true gift of the holiday of lights
… is we got bimuelo loco!

Latkes, gelt, presents and dreidel
You don’t know what you are missing
Til you inhale the bimuelo middle
And the flow is so chilling.
Think again, bimuelo craze
Everybody in the place!
Track Name: Buen Shabat
Buen Shabat

Buen Shabat, Shabbat shalom

It’s Friday night, el viernes
Come enjoy, gozaremos!

Buen Shabat, Shabbat shalom

Light the candles, las kandelas
Sing some songs, las kantikas

Buen Shabat, Shabbat shalom

Say kiddush for wine, el vino
Wash your hands, las manos

Buen Shabat, Shabbat shalom

Eat the challah, la halá,
Bless the family, la famiya

Buen Shabat, Shabbat shalom

Come together, endjuntos
Peace for all, para todos!

Buen Shabat, Shabbat shalom
