Hop! Mayne Homentashn, a humourous Yiddish song for Purim was written by a Jewish Ukranian poet and set to the air of a Ukranian folk melody, another humourous song, "Pishla maty na selo" (Mother Went to the Village). Both titles are given here as transliterations. For the lyrics and links to recordings o=of the Yiddish song, see

For Pishla Maty Na Selo see I propose to give the song its own Mudcat thread later.
