Only Tsurris

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

(to the tune of ‘Only Teardrops’, Eurovision Danmark 2013)

The queen is gone tonight
The king’s on edge tonight
No serenades to soothe him

Year after year, why are his matches so scarred?
Please tell us why, why does he make it so hard?
Look at us now, we’ve got to find a him a new dame
It’s such a pain

(Chorus)
How many times can we hear this news?
How many times does he have to choose a queen (oy)
Only tsurris
How many times we’ve been in this plight?
How many times till he gets it right? Eighteen? Oy!
Only tsurris

So come and face him now
Here on this stage tonight
Just leave your past behind you

Year after year, why are his matches so scarred?
Please tell us why, why does he make it so hard?
Look at us now, we’ve got to find a him a new dame
It’s such a pain

(Chorus)

What’s come until now
We must disavow
Only tsurris
What’s come until now
We must disavow

(Chorus)

Only tsurris
Only tsurris

(Chorus)
