VERSE 01: Have you heard the news/ Ain't you heard the news/ Hist! Come here,/ Let me have your ear/ Keep a secret yes?/ Can't you even guess?/ Jakie Cohen is going to marry Beckie dear/ Come to the wedding you'll have/ Ev'ry thing you wish/ Luxsion noodle soup,/ plenty of Gafilta fish/ Don't hesitate/ Come it's getting late/ Put a high hat on and come along.
CHORUS: There's going to be/ A jubilee/ At the Yiddish Wedding Dance/ Oy They'll all be there,/ from Ev'rywhere,/ We'll meet all the Cousins and their Uncles and their Aunts/ From Jakie's side/ I'll steal the bride/ And we'll take a dance around the hall/ I'll bet you all the money in the pocket of the pants/ I'll do Some Kazatsky dance/ Miss Cohen will do for you Salome/ And then we'll dine/ With Champagne wine/ At the Yiddisha Wedding Dance.
VERSE 02: Listen to the band/ What a wedding grand/ Look there's Mose/ where did he get those clothes/ The table looks so neat/ All good things to eat/ Listen folks I've got St. Vitus in the feet/ I'll dance with Mose and Abe can dance with Beckie's Ma/ Old Mrs. Stein/ She can dance with Jakie's Pa/ Don't be so slow,/ Come get dressed and go/ Get your Yuntiff clothes and come along.
