[BlogEntry] JibJab's latest: Matzah! — The Lyrics

I only had to listen to it fifty times:

I feel like a freak
'Cause every time I pull out something to eat
For this week
I can’t do this
'Cause I’m Jewish, and
I can’t eat bread,
Yeah, my Rabbi said only Matzah.
Any way you want to eat it
Cold or hot it’s Matzah
Fun for your mother, brother, sister, father Matzah
Buy in bulk for a lower cost per box it’s Matzah
Matzah Matzah Matzah Matzah

Hanukkah, no that's over.
So you don’t passed over
Get your ass over to my pad, it’s Passover.
I’m the mad flow who’s heebie-jeebin’ with the jibbin’ jabbin’
If you want the story of Passover 
Rent The Ten Commandments starring Charlton Heston.

But I got a question 
‘bout the bread that is unleavened
Causing indigestion
Called Matzah
Eat it for a week we gotsta.
No bread, no pasta.
Best believe that you'll be stopped up!

Now Moses made the matzah when he was fleeing Egypt,
Had no time for bread to rise.
He said "Ah just leave it. We can eat it like this. Feed it to the Hebrews."
But little did he know that the week would end up equal
Let my people go
Became the anthem,
So get your damn hands up,
Maybe it will help you pass some.

How could one bread rocket so famous
When the taste is just the flavor of the box it came in?
Eat it at one single second guessin'.
Leaving crumbs on my lap and chest,
And it’s called Matzah!
I found the Afikomen!
In my small intestine.
Matzah Matzah Matzah Matzah
