Bond of Love
|songs from Dovid Kerner
lyrics: Dovid Kerner
You are my sukkah
My little sukkah
You sit so proudly, upon my porch
You’ll never know dear
How much I love you
Wind don’t blow, my sukkah away.
The other night dear
As I lay resting
Upon my bed, beneath your schach
I saw the moon shine, and it looked fine
Wind don’t blow my sukkah away.
(to the tune of R’Shlomo Carlebach’s ‘Shomrim Hafkid’)
On Sukkos, don’t book us
In any fancy hotel
We've got a place that really rates
Come listen and I’ll tell.
A million stars, so very far
Above us will be swirling
While ‘neath our schach it’s ach, ach, ach
Build a sukkah - come with me
We’ll learn the mishna and you’ll see
That a sukkah cannot be
More than 20 amos tall
And at least 10 tfachim high
Any lower and I’d cry
I’d have a pasul sukkah
Now what is schach? (It’s ten o’clock –
You should have asked me sooner!)
Schach’s anything grown from the ground
That won’t m’kabel tumah!
