Gabbai of the Shul
Gabbai of the Shul
Parody of Master of the House – Les’ Miserables
Here comes Moshe talk of the town he is the best gabbai around,
If you’re a guest, or here for a look, at his behest, you wont be mistook,
Kohain or Levi, or Yisrael like me, he’ll make you feel content, and at home cause he’s,
Gabbai of the Shul; keeping things so calm walk in through the gate and you can feel his charm.
Listens to your tale, quick to refer, offer you some shnops or a new liqueur.
Glad to make you a new member, cut you a deal on the price,
People who have nothing, even get a little good advice.
Gabbai of the Shul, see him for your cue, He’ll tell you when to pick up Torah one or two
Demeanors always fine, never comes late, giving kids their candies is his greatest trait
Never any kind of discord never will he just pretend
Always has the keys and makes sure someone locks up in the end
Gabbai of the Shul always tell you why,
every Passover he’ll help you Matzah buy
Call em up for sure, makes them feel great
you should hear him say the prayer for the state
Everybody in the minyan make sure you’ve turned off your cell-phone
Yohrzeit and for Brisses He’ll make sure to get you from your home
End of the year cast off your load return to your root’s teshuvah’s the mode
This time isn’t fun it could be much worse, ‘wants to revive your spirit first
Here your not forsook here your soul’s alive,
The important thing in life is to be inscribed
Finding you a chair, giving you relief, if you’ve got a simcha or you’re bent in grief
Giving you the source, delivers this and that and it does not matter if you wear a hat
Presidents will give him welcome their pride is that he’s on their side
Doesn’t take advantage everything he does is filled with pride
You never will entice, Dvar Torah’s very nice, reads the Parsha every Shabbat at least twice
Comes without a price never takes a cut, the people get aliyahs shul is never shut
He can fix all kinds of devices no Halacha that he doesn’t know
The congregations pleased and never are deceived This Gabbai never ran a better show
Gabbai of the Shul always tell you why, every Passover he’ll help you Matzah buy
Call em up for sure, makes them feel great you should hear him say the prayer for the state
Everybody in the minyan knows exactly what they’ve got
Nobody will tease they’ll think before they get a little hot
I know it seemed this job would be a cinch
But the almighty knows this is a partnership
Gabbai of the Shul sometimes take the hit but running God’s house is worth every bit
I really love to Lain and give out the Maftir it seems they want to re-elect me every year
We don’t do it for the stature of this there isn’t any doubt
Good deeds are abound we do it to help everybody out
Gabbai of the shul, Gabbai and his staff Shaliach Hatzibur, very tough craft!
Married to the shul, serving the kahal Doesn’t get the compliments just the scowls!
Everybody bless the gabbai! Everybody bless the rav!
Everybody say amen, Amen, Keep the Gabbai very Sane!
Everybody say amen for the gabbai of the shul! Amen!
