I’m not a Ditzy Blonde

written for Pickup Purimspiel, “Bro(e)n II ½: The Saga Continues”
Öresunds Limmud, Malmö, Sweden, 9 March 2014

(to the tune of ‘Fly on the wings of love’, Eurovision Danmark 2000)

(Saga-Esther)
Over Öresund, not too far from Lund
Is my greatest trial
So the heat is on, outcome’s not foregone
no more queen of denial.

He’s finally gotten rid of that old crone
I’ll be the greatest queen to share his throne.

I’m not a ditzy blonde
I’m distinct from the mob
I’ll reach for his golden wand
Touching its knob.

(Asbjörn)
If you make the grade, and I can be swayed
You’ll become my empress
And throughout the land, we’ll walk hand in hand
Just don’t be a temptress.

I’ve finally gotten rid of that old crone
Will this one be the choice to share my throne?

She’s not a ditzy blonde
Distinct from the mob
Reaching my golden wand
Touching its knob.

(The people)
Distinct from the mob

She’s not a ditzy blonde
Reaching his golden wand
Touching its knob.

Distinct from the mob
A ditzy blonde
