Oh, even if He had been sleeping
While six million Jews were slaughtered
Even though He watched us tortured, Dayenu. (Dayenu)
Day Dayenu, Day Dayenu, Day Dayenu, Dayenu Dayenu

Even if the Muslim putzes
Weren’t blowing up our buses
Yadda Yadda Intifadeh, Dayenu (Dayenu)
We’re all crazy . . . about you
Couldn’t live without you
Who needs happiness?

Even if there was no Hitler
Even if there was no Haman
Why so many snippy gay men? Dayenu (Dayenu)
We are chosen
So we’re coping
Still, we’re hoping
You’ll choose someone else.

Even if we have big noses
Even if we’re prone to hair loss
Even if there was no Tay-Sachs, Dayenu (Dayenu)
God is looking
God is watching
God is botching everything He does.

Even when the goyim tease us
Even when the gulags freeze us
It’s okay, we murdered Jesus, Dayenu (Dayenu)

Day Day Dammit, Day Day Dammit, Day Day Dammit
Let’s sing it one more time (why don’t we?)
Day Day Dammit, Day Day Dammit, Day Day Dammit
And circumcision hurts, oy!
