lyrics

composed by Adolf King
arranged by Yiddish Art Trio

Sha, sha, keep quiet! The Rebbe is leaving the synagogue!
Sha, sha, he’s already here, what a blessing!
Sha, sha, chassidim, look! The Rebetsin (the Rebbe’s wife)!
Sha, sha, look at that smile, what a dame!

Oy, the Rebetsin ! That's what I call a Rebetsin !
Just look at her go, swaying to and fro,
The chassidim and children dance and sing before her,
That's what I call a Rebetsin !
Great and small should get a sight of her, heavenly as a homentash,
That's what I call a Rebetsin, Hot tamale!

Sha, sha chassidim listen up!
The Rebbe is writing a new melody, oy, is it a hit!
Sha, sha, the Rebbe sings, oy, oy the glasses clink,
Sha, sha, the Rebetsin sings along.

Oy, the Rebetsin ! That's what I call a Rebetsin!
What a creature, a little Torah, she burns as bright as a menorah.
That's what I call a Rebetsin, Hot tamale!

Sha, sha, it’s getting late, the Rebbe blesses the wine,
Sha, sha, the chassidim are all ears,
Sha, sha, gefilte fish is brought to the table,
Sha, sha, the Rebetsin serves each and every guest.

Oy, the Rebetsin! That's what I call a Rebetsin!
A little muffin, a stuffed cannoli, a dairy blintz!
That's what I call a Rebetsin , Hot tamale!

Sha, sha chassidim, quiet! The Rebbe is full.
Sha, sha, does he know how to bless the meal!
Sha, sha, the Rebbe dances, his eyes sparkle.
Sha, sha, the Rebetsin is dancing with him, too.

Oy, the Rebetsin! Now that's what I call a Rebetsin!
Voluptuous as a vase, gooey as a noodle kugel.
That's what I call a Rebetsin, Hot tamale!
