ea, judios

ok, Simon and whoever else wants it; it's:

Ea, judios,
a enfardelar,
que mandan los reyes 
que paseis la mar.

Hey, Jews,
time to pack up,
the king and queen are commanding
that you cross the sea.

That's all there is, or at least all that's been written down or
discovered. Apparently, this was sung jeeringly at the departing Jews,
and at some point the (rather unprepossessing, at best) tune was used as
the basis for a Mass.

cheers, Judith
