Morten Kaj: hero, ascending career, oh
Suddenly I’m pushed aside, forgotten man
(You need a new career plan)

One day in the city (you’re sitting there thinking)
Lots of self-pity (you saw something blinking)
It gave me a groovy idea
Oh, what a fab solution

Alef bet gimel hey, I will make those Jews pay
In the most spectacular style
I’ll be dancing in the streets
flaunting my purposes vile

Alef bet gimel hey, they’ll be saying “oy vey”
and the chief I will surely beguile
coercing wicked deeds
with my dastardly smile

I have a vision for the excision
of that pestiferous tribe known as the Jews
(We feel his wickedness ooze)

What of the hitches (you’ll conquer them neatly)
And rumors this kitsch is? (refuting completely)
Oh, I can have all I fancy
In my fantastical world

Alef bet gimel hey, I will make those Jews pay
in the most spectacular style
I’ll be dancing in the streets
flaunting my purposes vile

Alef bet gimel hey, they’ll be saying “oy vey”
and the chief I will surely beguile
coercing wicked deeds
with my dastardly smile

Right now it’s just a dream, but need to put in motion
Fulfill my goals, using all of my devotion
Me, the most despicable
Oh…oh…
Oh…oh…

Alef bet gimel hey, they’ll be saying “oy vey”
and the chief I will surely beguile
coercing wicked deeds
with my dastardly smile

I’ll be dancing in the streets
flaunting my purposes vile
