HAMAN:

How does a Hebrew, Jewish,

son of Je-ru-sa-lem

And his cousin-destined

Esther the fetching one,

To be the new Persian queen by Adonai encrusted all in diamond

Turn out to be two heroes

and with rye bread?

KING AHASUARUS:

The twelve tribes had

Left Mitzrayim,

And got a Bible

On top of Sinai,

our Moses saw an eyeful

Forty days he was liable

the Hebrews weren’t viable

By the end, with Aaron

they had built a golden idol

HAGAI:

And every day while slaves the Pharaoh’s daughter raised Moses

And In the split Reed Sea, the water up to their noses

On sand, they were walking on their baking backs their dough is

Now matzah and ready to beg, steal, borrow: Afikomizz

ESTHER:

Babylonians came,

and devastation reigned

Our Temple was destroyed bricks dripping down the drain

Four hundred years stood the Temple, erected it once again

But before we built the twain,

in Babylon we’re in pain

HAMAN:

Well this guy Mordechai

he said exile is insane, man

Went to central Persia

with his cousin to a strange land

To the city Shushan, Esther hid from whence she came and

The world soon will know your names! What’s your names, man?

ESTHER & MORDECHAI:

Queen Esther and Mordechai

Our names are Queen Esther and Mordechai

And there’s a lot of sand, my skin is dry

But it’s our fate, just you wait

HAGAI:

The king was sad, his Vashti split,

sick of it lacked a queen

A year later, hired Haman as his second him so mean

Brain dead, sittin’ on his big throne

no ring tone

COMPANY:

(And Esther became queen, with a throne of her own)

HAGAI and (COMPANY):

Mordechai her cousin, told her jewishness she’ll have to hide

King can’t know he’s got a Hebrew bride, it might kill his pride

His voice saying “Esther you must pretend, not your self

She started speed reading and speaking and counting all her new wealth

MORDECHAI and (COMPANY):

There would’ve been no more living Jews

If Haman was astute

We would’ve been dead or cooked in stew

Without a hint of meat to chew and

Sold for slavery and to a new Persian Pharaoh

Baking bricks and building and then swingin’ from the gallows

Haman steals everything he can get his hands on

Blamin’ all the Jews and then the ground that they stand on

The town of a King with a new Jewish ban

In Shushan you can’t be a Jew, man

COMPANY and (MORDECHAI):

In Shushan you can’t be a Jew, man

(It’s your fate)

In Shushan you can’t be a Jew, man

(It’s your fate)

In Shushan you can’t be a Jew, man

WOMEN:

In Shushan

MEN:

Shushan

ESTHER:

It’s our fate

COMPANY and (COMPANY):

Queen Esther and Mordechai

We’re depending on our faith in you (‘pending on our faith in you)

You could never back down

You like the Manischewitz wine

Oh, Queen Esther and Mordechai

When Klal Yisrael sings for you

Will they know what you overcame?

Will they know that you burned a flame?

The world will never be the same, oh

ESTHER and (COMPANY):

This Haman wants us all to bow, Mordechai defies him

(It’s our fate)

Another evil fool hating Jews and denies them

(It’s our fate)

His enemies destroyed him and really did surprise him

JEWS:

We fought for them

KING:

Me? I lied to them

HAMAN:

Me? I hated them

GOD:

Me? I loved them

MORDECHAI:

And me?

I’m the proud Jew who fired him

COMPANY:

We are grateful for this girl and guy

But It’s our fate

HAMAN:

What’s your names, man?

ESTHER & MORDECHAI, COMPANY:

Queen Esther & Mordechai!
