2 Live Jews – Young Jews, Be Proud lyrics
[spoken, with drums getting progressively louder]
Jus' look at them.
I tell you, it warms the heart to see the little ones out there.
Y' know, it wasn' always this easy for us to sit back an' enjoy the little ones.
Never forget what your people wen' through to get you here,
An' it's for you to tell them about us. You know that, don't you?

Yeah! Kick it!
C'mon, my brothers/sisters out in every land!
It's up to you to shake the world, so you must understand
>From where our people have come and to where they must go,
So now I'll kick a little history that you should know.
You see, the Jews have been oppressed for thousands of years.
To every corner of the world you can trace our tears.
We were enslaved by the Pharoahs 'till God sent Moses.
Even after he delivered us, it was no bed of roses.
For forty years we wandered on the barren desert sand
'Till Joshua the leader brought us to the promised land,
So when ya kick this rhyme, you wanna sing it out loud.
You are the nation of our fathers. Young Jews, be proud!

[musical interlude: Jewish music played on synthesizer with drums]

Now our people lived here, and they held this place,
And they were ruled by the great leaders of our faith.
Now, from the house of Jesse came David the King.
He kept the nation strong. He wrote the songs we sing.
His son Solomon the Wise had it down cold.
He asked God for wisdom when He offered him gold.
And there were other dark times for the Jewish race
When the innocent were persecuted for our faith.
But we owe a debt to all those who have died
To forever stand tall and face the world with pride,
So when ya kick this rhyme, you wanna sing it out loud.
You are the nation of our fathers. Young Jews, be proud!

[music repeats to sudden ending.]
