My zedi lived with us in my parents' home He used to laugh, he put me on his knee He spoke about his life in Poland He spoke but with a bitter memory He spoke about the soldiers who would beat him They laughed at him they tore his long black coat He spoke about a synagogue that they burnt down And the crying that was heard beneath the smoke CHORUS But zedi made us laugh, and zedi made us sing And zedi made a kiddush Friday night And zedi, O my zeydi how I love him so And zedi used to teach me wrong from right His eyes lit up when he would teach me Torah He taught me every line so carefully He spoke about our slavery in Egypt And how God took us out to make us free But winter went by, summer came along I went to camp, to run and play And when I came back home they said "Zeide's gone" And all his books were packed and stored away I don't know why and how it came to be It happened slowly over many years We just stopped being Jewish like my Zeide was And no one cared enough to shed a tear CHORUS But zedi made us laugh, and zedi made us sing And zedi made us Seder, Pesach night And zedi, O my zeydi how I love him so And zedi used to teach me wrong from right Many winters went by, Many summers came along And now my children sit in front of me And who will be the Zaide of my children Who will be their Zeide if not me Who will be the Zeides of our children Who will be their Zeides if not we Repeat 1st chorus
