BELT- Gershon Veroba & Larry Gates- Composed By Yossi Green- Just One Shaitel (T.T.T.O. Gelt- Lipa Schmeltzer)

VERSE 1:
6 o’clock, what a shock, haven’t even left my block,
House in Queens surely means it was time to hurry,
Brother’s wedding, we’d be heading, who knows when- I wasn’t betting,
Getting dressed, what a mess, it was time to worry.

We embark on a lark to the hall in Boro Park,
My wife and I really try but we don’t know the way,
Drivin’ quick, I feel sick, sittin’ still on the Van Wyck,
I’ll be late, very shpeit, when I heard her say.

CHORUS 1:
I told you, take the Belt,
You shoulda used the Belt,
You never listen when I tell you- always use the Belt,
I always use the Belt,
Why can’t you use the Belt,
Now we’re lost, it’s gonna cost,
You didn’t take the Belt.

Now we’re not movin’,
My wife has proven,
She’d do it better,
I should’ve let her,
If she we’re drivin’,
We’d be arrivin’,
I’d rather walk than hear her talk.

Oh, we’re not movin’,
And she’s still proven,
She’d do it better,
I should have let her,
Toig oif kapures
Ich bin oif tzuris
I should’ve listened right away.

She told me- take the Belt,
I should’ve used the Belt,
I never listen when she tells me
You should use the Belt,
Next time I’ll use the Belt,
You’ll see, I’ll use the Belt,
Ah yeider shmoiger
Far zich toig ehr,
Shoulda used the Belt.

VERSE 2:
7:10, that was when, we saw we were stuck again,
Getting near, almost there, in our brand new Ford,
Out of luck, we’re still stuck, right behind a garbage truck,
Oh, how great, now we’re late, missed the smorgasbord.

Nerves of steel at the wheel, imagine how upset I feel,
Tensions rising, realized, should’ve listened right away,
Chupah’s looming, I’m still zooming, while my wife is busy fuming,
Now I’m late, but really late, again I heard her say.

CHORUS 2:
Told you to take the Belt,
You shoulda used the Belt,
You never listen when I tell you- always use the Belt,
I always use the Belt,
Why can’t you use the Belt,
Now we’re lost, it’s gonna cost,
You didn’t take the Belt.

Now we’re not movin’,
My wife has proven,
She’ll do it better,
I should’ve let her,
If she we’re drivin’,
We’d be arrivin’,
I’d rather walk than hear her talk.

Oh, we’re not movin’,
And she’s still proven,
She’d do it better,
I should have let her,
Toig oif kapures
Ich bin oif tzuris
I should’ve listened right away.

She told me- take the Belt,
I could’ve used the Belt,
I didn’t listen when she told me
You should use the Belt (next time),
I’ll use the Belt,
You’ll see, I’ll use the Belt,
Ah yeider shmoiger
Far zich toig ehr,
Shoulda used the Belt.

(So guess what? The next time, I took the Belt!
And you know what? I got stuck in traffic!!!
It was the same thing!!! Ehhh, I was late…
And you know what I heard in my ear was-
Why did you take the Belt?
Never take the Belt in rush hour!! You should know that!!
I CAN’T WIN!!! I CAN’T WIN!!!)
