Joe Offer Lyr Req: Bread and Gravy (69* d) DTADD: Bulbes (Yiddish) 14 Oct 03


There's a well-known Yiddish song that follows the same pattern:

BULBES (POTATOES)

Zuntik - bulbes
Montik - bulbes
Dinstik un mitvokh - bulbes
Donershtik un fraytik - bulbes
Shabes in a novene - a bulbe-kugele
Zuntik - vayter bulbes!

Broyt mit bulbes
Fleysh mit bulbes
Varemes un vetshere - bulbes
Ober un vider - bulbes
Eyn mol in a novene - a bulbe-kugele
Zuntik - vayter bulbes!

Sunday-potatoes, Monday-potatoes, Tuesday and Wednesday-potatoes, Thursday and Friday-potatoes. But on Saturday for a change-a potato pudding! Sunday-potatoes again.
Bread with potatoes, meat with potatoes, morning and evening-potatoes, over and again-potatoes. One time for something new, a potato pudding. Sunday-potatoes again.
