Once we were slaves in Egypt

That wasn’t very fun

Building stuff for Pharaoh

And burning in the sun.


Moses talked to Pharaoh

And said, “We’re out of here!”

But Pharaoh wouldn’t listen

‘Cause he just didn’t care.


Oh Pharaoh, Pharaoh, Pharaoh,

You should have let us go

You made a real big blunder

When you said, “No, no, no.”


Well Pharaoh had it coming

Frogs and lice and hail,

Locusts, boils and darkness

For him, a major fail.


Oh matzah, matzah, matzah,

There wasn’t time to rise,

Just enough to hurry

And run from Pharaoh’s guys.


The seder’s songs and stories

Show Pharaoh’s big defeat,

Though sometimes all I think of

Is please when do we eat?
