Hung Over 'til June

Passover’s coming so soon, so soon In two more orbits of the moon, the moon Please take a matzo or a macaroon, macaroon And sing us a festival tune, tune... At least matzo ball soup can’t be ruined, ruined Unless you eat it with a teaspoon, teaspoon Use a nice-size, silver soup-spoon, soup-spoon Just don’t overeat, or you’ll swoon, you’ll swoon… From four cups of wine no one’s immune, immune So sleep late tomorrow, ‘til high noon, high noon Hope you’re not hung over ‘til June, ‘til June ~ But if you are, with ‘spirits’ you'll commune, commune…

A Blessed Pesach, Gershon. Great food, Holiday, Kosher wine, etc. I have not been to a Pesach Celebration for many years. Leave the door open for Elijah and send me some Kosher Matza, ))) please? Thank you. Love the rhythm in this creation. Panagiota xo

Thank you so much for the upbeat comment, Panagiota. This year, we'll be thinking mostly of those in the Ukraine, as my wife is from Kharkiv, her 'old stomping grounds' totally pulverized. Thank God, all but two of her friends there got out to Poland and beyond. Happiness and Light, Gershon

Thank you for noticing the musicality, Valsa. Here's to melody and rhythm, Gershon
