[HANASHIR:14151] RE: Shalom Aleichem

Shalom Y'all!   Does anyone know the derivation of this cute kids' song?
I'll write it out in solfege -
(Low) me-la-do-(octave higher): me, me, me, me, me, re, do, re,
(Low) me-la-do- (octave higher): me,me,me,me,me,re, do, ti,
la.................. (repeat both lines twice) then:
(High): la, sol,, me, do-ti-la........
Ti, do, re, fa, me-re-do-re- me............etc....................

Cute song and I'm going to do it, just wasn't sure where it came from
(besides Vel's book).  Ps -- Does anyone have an easy round (all in
hebrew) that's fast, easy to learn, and maybe even about Torah?   (Ok it
doesn't have to be about Torah, but if it does, you get the prize).

    This is the only Ballad of Jed Clampett Passover parody that I know
of.  I
hope it helps.

The Ballad of Mo Amramson (to "The Ballad of Jed Clampett")

Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Mo,
His people they were slaves to the evil Pharoah,
Until one day he was lookin' at a bush,
And he heard the voice of God, though he wasn't a lush---
The LORD, that is,
The Big G.

Next thing you know, Mo's talkin' to Pharoah,
Mo says, "God said you gotta let my people go!"
But the king says, "No, they always will be slaves to me!"
So God sent down ten big plagues on Pharoah's whole country---
Blood 'n frogs, that is,
Special effects.

When the first borns died, Pharoah sent the Jews away,
They ran and ate some matzoh on that very happy day,
So now we have our Seder to commemorate that feat---
We drink some wine and talk a lot, we sing and also eat!
Matzoh, that is,
Maror too.
And good food.

Y'all come back now, y'hear!
