Allright, so this is weird, but does anybody know where I can find the lyrics to Puff the Kosher Dragon? (Yup, it's to the tune of the other Puff, the one who gets stoned and eats pork.) I learned it 10-15 years ago when I was a kid and would can't remember how it ends. I've no idea who wrote it, and none of the searches I've tried have been successful. But with parameters like "Jewish song parodies", I'm not especially surprised. My undying gratitude to anybody who might be able to set me in the right direction. Thanks.

Yup, it's weird........Tiger ^^ Puff, The Kosher Dragon

    CHORUS
    Puff, the kosher Dragon
    Lived in Palestine
    And frolicked in the synagogue
    And drank Shapiro's wine.
    Little Rabbi Goldberg
    Loved that kosher Puff
    And fed him lox and matzoh balls
    And other kosher stuff.

Then one day it happened
Puff was eating pork,
And little Rabbi Goldberg
Took that dragon for a walk.
Gently he explained that
Dragons don't eat meat
That comes from little piggies that
Have little dirty feet.

    CHORUS

Puff became bar mitzvahed
Put on tefillin every day.
Wrapped up in his tallis, oh
That's the way he'd pray.
He said bracha before eating,
He bentsched after every meal.
Imagine how religious
It made that dragon feel.

    CHORUS

Wow - I haven't heard that since I was a little kid. They used to blast it through the speakers at camp to wake us up! :)

I remember hearing this in college, in the early 70s, down at the kosher kitchen. Now if I could only remember the Jewish words to the Whiffenpoof Song...

We are ppor little lambs who have gone astray, baa, baa, baa
But we'll all be forgiven on Yom Kippur Day, baa, baa, baa.

Hi Charlie Start another thread when you ask for a new song. People will not find your request imbedded in another thread.

Actually, Susan, the Jewish Whiffenpoof song was more of a nostalgic remembrance than a request for lyrics. (If I *really* need the lyrics, I can ask my friend Ira, who knows them.) --Charlie Baum

The song Puff the Kosher Dragon was origionaly written by a band called "Ruach"...

I actually still own the Record (LP) of thier music with Puff on in...

Too bad I don't have a record Player anymore so I can transfer it to CD...

Trying to find out anything on the web related to the band "Ruach"..

Take Care....

There was a version I heard once a generation ago after the verse wherein Rabbi Goldberg tells Puff that Jewish dragons don't eat port:

Puff the Magic Dragon let out a mighty roar
And little Rabbi Goldberg isn't living any more....

implying that you better not drag the ham away from the dragon.

PUFF THE KOSHER DRAGON

CHORUS:
Puff, the Kosher dragon, lived in Palestine
And frolicked in the synagogue
And drank Shapiro's wine
Little Rabbi Goldberg, loved that Kosher Puff
And fed him lox and matzah balls
And other Kosher stuff.

Now Puff became Bar Mitzvah, put on Tefillin every day
Wrapped up in his Tallis, oh that's the way he prayed
Made Brochos before eating, and he bentched after every meal
Imagine how religious it made that dragon feel.
Oh

Now, there were some people, who did things just for spite
They'd curse Jews and attack them, just to get into a fight
When Puff the dragon heard this, He roared a mighty roar
Now, those wicked people aren't with us any more.
Oh

Now, Puff the Kosher Dragon found himself a bride
Now, little Kosher dragons are his source of joy and pride
They'll grow up doing Mitzvos, learning Torah and davening, too
And Rabbi Goldberg teaching them, what Kosher dragons do.
Oh

Now, you who may be listening, may think we're making fun
But deep down in this story, there's a moral for everyone
If a dragon can
wear a Kippa, keep Shabbos and Kosher, too
Then you can learn, like Puff did, how to be real good Jews.
Oh
