WHO WILL LEYN?

Sung to the tune of "Penny Lane" (with apologies to the Beatles)

Words by Kymn & Barry Goodman

 

 

Who will leyn for next Shabbat, we need some readers now,

The gabai'im like wolves are knocking at the door,

You say that you will do the first three?

You I adore!  How 'bout four more?

 

There's no festival or Hallel or Bar Mitzvah,

There is no special nusuch that you need,

Won't somebody volunteer?

Mitzvah points guaranteed.

 

Chorus:   Who will leyn for next Shabbat Parshat Naso?

                There is just one aliyah to go,

                Who will leyn for next Shabbat Parshat Naso?

                There is just one aliyah to go,

                Meanwhile back . . .

 

At Or Shalom there is Richard on the telephone,

And David sending out the weekly email news,

When on Shabbos the davening begins

In the pews, many Jews.

 

P'suke d'zimra never really starts right at ten,

The time is made up in a rousing Shacharit,

Rabbi Laura wraps up the d'var,

The service is complete, very sweet, but

 

Chorus:    Who will leyn for next Shabbat Parshat Naso?

                There is still one aliyah to go,

                Who will leyn for next Shabbat Parshat Naso? (don't make us ask again!)

                There is still one aliyah to go,

                Who will leyn for next Shabbat Parshat Naso? (somebody? please?)

                There is still one aliyah to go,

                Who will leyn?
