AN ONLY KID!


An only kid!
An only kid!
The father bought,
For two zuzim.
An only kid!
An only kid!

A cat came,
And ate the kid,
The father bought,
For two zuzim.
An only kid!
An only kid!


Then came a dog,
And bit the cat,
Which ate the kid,
The father bought,
For two zuzim,
An only kid!
An only kid!

Then came a stick,
And beat the dog,
Which bit the cat,
Which ate the kid,
The father bought,
For two zuzim.
An only kid!
An only kid!

Then came a fire,
And burned the stick,
Which beat the dog,
Which bit the cat,
Which ate the kid,
The father bought,
For two zuzim.
An only kid!
An only kid!


Then came the water,
And quenched the fire,
Which burned the stick,
Which beat the dog,
Which bit the cat,
Which ate the kid,
The father bought,
For two zuzim.
An only kid!
An only kid!

Then came an ox,
And drank the water,
Which quenched the fire,
Which burned the stick,
Which beat the dog,
Which bit the cat,
Which ate the kid,
The father bought,
For two zuzim.
An only kid!
An only kid!

Then came the slaughterer,
And killed the ox,
Which drank the water,
Which quenched the fire,
Which burned the stick,
Which beat the dog,
Which bit the cat,
Which ate the kid,
The father bought,
For two zuzim.
An only kid!
An only kid!

The came the angel of death,
And slew the slaughterer,
Who killed the ox,
Which drank the water,
Which quenched the fire,
Which burned the stick,
Which beat the dog,
Which bit the cat,
Which ate the kid,
The father bought,
For two zuzim.
An only kid!
An only kid!

Then came the Holy One, blest be He!
And destroyed the angel of death,
Who slew the slaughterer,
Who killed the ox,
Which drank the water,
Which quenched the fire,
Which burned the stick,
Which beat the dog,
Which bit the cat,
Which ate the kid,
The father bought,
For two zuzim.
An only kid!
An only kid!
