Two Sets of Dishes

Two Sets of Dishes (Original)

I’ve got one set of dishes where I will eat dairy,

That’s food made with milk in Hebrew Chalavi.

Another set of dishes – that’s for all my meat,

In Hebrew that’s basar your lesson’s almost complete.


Chorus: Two sets of dishes for my family

One is for meat and one is for dairy

Never mix the two together ‘cause you know what we say

Doing many mitzvot is the only way.


After meat I’ll wait 6 hours but some wait only three,

It depends on the customs of your ancestry.

After milk just wash out your mouth you don’t have to wait,

Except if you ate hard cheese do you have it straight?  Chorus…
