Mickey KatzGeshray Of Devilde Kotchke

Ikh vil geyn vu di katshke geyt
Un I wanna drey vi a katshke dreyt
Wild goose, brekh a fus, geshtopte haldz
A maykhl in baykhl un a geln shmalts (gallon shmalts)

Yesterday I went to the butcher shop
To buy a chicken and a couple of chops
The butcher said, " we got katshke today "
Di katshke heard him and he gave a geshrey

I wanna go where the wild goose goose
Cause I know more than the wild goose knows
Mayn kop tsekvetsht un mayn pipik tsedrikt
Before too long I'll be opgeflikt

No feathers...

And the butcher said that it weighs ten pounds
" It's a beautiful katshke, lady,
A magnificent gandz
Six dollars, a metsiye, hey lady you'll buy it "
Di katshke cried " rakhmones! I don't want a levaye "

Ay, ay, ay....

Ikh muz geyn vu di wild goose muz
Before der shoykhet khapt arop mayn nuz
Vild goose, brekh a fus, khap a kholatshke
Bald I'm gonna ley vi a teyte katshke

Let me fly avek....Squawk!

Oy, s'iz shoyn farfaln
It ain't no use
Der butcher er farkoyft mikh
And I'm a cooked goose
I've got to be brave
Oh, her balebatish
Goodbye little chickens, don't forget to say kaddish.

And I can't go where the wild goose goes
Cause I must go where the shoykhet goes
I'll be opgezaltst, I'll be in a top
A make afn butcher, zol im shtinken fun kop
