Passover Funk

Four cups cold
Holy Moses
Egyptian gold

This one, for family
The hagada
Straight masterpiece
Matzah, marror
Eatin’ it up at the Seder
Got Kittel on with Saint Laurent
Save the Afikoman for later

Now comes blood, all red!
Called for Moses
He’s a Magician
Frogs, lice, on head!
Wild beasts and hail I said
It’s so dark, where's Fred!
Let us go, Pharaoh got no cred
Firstborn, he's dead!

Say Hebrews, let’s start running.
Break it down

Jews wrote the hallelujah
Jews wrote the hallelujah
Jews wrote the hallelujah
‘Cause Pesach Funk gon’ give it to you
‘Cause Pesach Funk gon’ give it to you
‘Cause Pesach Funk gon’ give it to you
Passover night and we are living it up
Fill it up the Four cups

Matzah crumblin’ up
Chametz burned it all up
Afikoman's wrapped up
Don't be slaves, just rise up
Pesach funk is what's up
Hey, hey, hey, oi!

Wait a minute
Fill my cup with the Maneschewitz
Take a sip, lean your chest
Yankele! Get the stretch!
Say four questions, the four sons, four cups, not too many
and we thank God for freedom
headin’ to our land of milk n’ honey

Freedom! Oh man
Gonna live my life the best way I can
Freedom! We can
Make the Jew in you to a hero man
Freedom! I am…
Say goodbye to those shackles and
Freedom! Hot sand!
More matzah in your tummy
Break it down

Jews wrote the hallelujah
Jews wrote the hallelujah
Jews wrote the hallelujah
‘Cause Pesach Funk gon’ give it to you
‘Cause Pesach Funk gon’ give it to you
‘Cause Pesach Funk gon’ give it to you
Passover night and we are living it up
Fill it up the Four cups

Matzah crumblin' up
Chametz burned it all up
Afikoman's wrapped up
Don't be slaves, just rise up
Pesach funk is what's up
Hey, hey, hey, oi!

We are 70 and 76.
We thoroughly enjoyed both your Passover and your Rosh Hashanah videos.
You have blended our religious traditions with joy and reverence and reminded us of the glory and happiness of celebrating our Judaism. Well done! Thank you.

Video outstanding

My Jewish friends shared your “Passover Funk” song and it is just unbelievable. I love Bruno Mars but you have done his song justice with your remake. The group of men have great voices & there nice to look at also. Hope this get shared with Bruno or pass to “The Ellen Show” video app cause I know she would love it as well.

Loved it!

I never write comments but I had to for this GREAT AND FUN video. I have sent it on to all my friends and family. It is so clever and well edited. I must have watched it ten times already and Passover is still a week and a half away. Good work gentlemen! Very talented singers and dancers. The kids added so much joy also to the presentation! The lyrics were witty and I wonder if "Weird Al Yankovitz" wants to record it also. Thank you for your time in producing this! What fun! Loved it!

Thank you!

As an RE teacher, this video has been an amazing resource to teach the meaning of Passover to my Year Five classes.
By giving them the lyrics to follow, they were able to pick out specific events and names of items from the seder plate to further cement their learning.
Fantastic - thanks again.

(40) Ness, December 4, 2015 8:02 PM

Thank you!

Wow!! You guys are a) amazing; your singing and dancing are hugely inspirational and, b) what an amazing resource for me to use when teaching year 5 children about the Jewish Passover Festival. The kids really relate to the music that is familiar to them; you have done an amazing job. I really hope you enjoyed it too! THANK YOU! c) you have really achieved what you set out to do - your message is being heard!
