Saga Esther’s Song

written for Pickup Purimspiel 2, “Bro(e)n III ¾: (The) Never-ending Saga”
Öresunds Limmud, Malmö, Sweden, 6 March 201

(to the tune of ‘Dansevise’, Eurovision Danmark 1963)

A gunshot through a window
A bloody shirt that’s been binned
Web of crime that is spinning is just the beginning
of this story’s whirlwind

A hanging from a treetop
A body washed up on the sand
A strangling at Kastrup, a stabbing in Taastrup
Crime here has gotten out of hand

You will need a new mate
Someone who’ll get the job done
I will admit that I can frustrate
but can outshoot anyone

And us two? What of us two?
Am I your new cup of tea?
I confess that I’m tactless, yet possess an exactness
So I’ll make a fabulous queen bee

I’m the one, I’m the one
You can bet that we’ll have lots of fun
I’m the one, I’m the one
I’m the one to be your liaison

Give it a chance
What’s there to lose?
Give it a chance
Let us dance, let us shmooze

And us two? What of us two?
Am I your new cup of tea?
I confess that I’m tactless, yet possess an exactness
So I’ll make a fabulous queen bee

I’m the one, I’m the one
Your liaison
