Passover Parody Songs

For my Jewish followers out there, I thought I’d cue you in to the wonderful site, DIY Seder*, where we designed our own hagaddah this year. The site is especially awesome because it includes a slew of Passover parody songs to the tune of popular children’s and rock songs. For example:

A Passover Song
[Sung to the tune of "These are a few of my favorite things"]

Cleaning and cooking and so many dishes
Out with the hametz, no pasta, no knishes
Fish that’s gefillted, horseradish that stings
These are a few of our Passover things.

Matzoh and karpas and chopped up haroset
Shankbones and Kiddish and Yiddish neuroses
Tante who kvetches and uncle who sings
These are a few of our Passover things.

Motzi and maror and trouble with Pharoahs
Famines and locusts and slaves with wheelbarrows
Matzoh balls floating and eggshell that cling
These are a few of our Passover things.

When the plagues strike
When the lice bite
When we’re feeling sad
We simply remember our Passover things
And then we don’t feel so bad.

There were many many other songs like this one. There were Passover parodies of “It’s a Small World”, “A Hard Day’s Night”, “Leaving on a Jet Plane” and ”Under the Sea” from “The Little Mermaid” to name a few.

We had fun giggling over these songs at our make-shift early seder earlier this week. You can also add jokes and coloring pages to your own personalized FREE hagaddah on this site. It’s absolutely fantastic! It made for the best seder ever for our Reform Judaism household.

To those who celebrate, have a Happy Passover this week!

*This site has no connection to DIY Seder and has received no endorsements or referrals from it. It’s just a fun site I discovered while frantically looking for a way to get a hagaddah on short notice.
