BIG GEDALIAH GOOMBER- Uncle Moishy- Composed By Yosaif Silverman- Vol. 1

I’m big Gedalia Goomber
I’m not exactly small
But really not so very big
Just seventeen feet tall…
I’m rigged for heavy working
For that I’m very fit
Six days a week I’m at it
And on the seventh day I quit.
Ohhhh….

CHORUS:
Ain’t gonna work on Saturday
Ain’t gonna work on Saturday
Double, double, triple pay
Won’t make me work on Saturday
Ain’t gonna work on Saturday…
It’s Shabbos Kodesh.

I once helped raise a building
And on the hundredth floor
I was carrying a load of bricks
An easy ton or more…
And here, it’s late on Friday
I knew I’d have to stop
So I yelled, “Watch out below!”
And let the whole thing drop.
Ohhhhh….

CHORUS:
Ain’t gonna work on Saturday
Ain’t gonna work on Saturday
Double, double, triple pay
Won’t make me work on Saturday
Ain’t gonna work on Saturday…
It’s Shabbos Kodesh.

I once was an explorer
To Africa I went
One day some hungry lions
Came roaring ’round our tent
My assistant held my rifle
“Go Goomber, shoot these pests.”
But I invited them instead
To be our Shabbos guests.
Ohhhh….

CHORUS:
Ain’t gonna work on Saturday
Ain’t gonna work on Saturday
Double, double, triple pay
Won’t make me work on Saturday
Ain’t gonna work on Saturday…
It’s shabbos kodesh.

I dress my best on Shabbos
Three meals I feast me fine
I make a royal Kiddush
On a barrel full of wine…
And when I sing my Zemiros
For a thousand miles they know
That we’re enjoying Shabbos
For Hashem has told us so.
Soooo…

CHORUS:
Ain’t gonna work on Saturday
Ain’t gonna work on Saturday
Double, double, triple pay
Won’t make me work on Saturday
Ain’t gonna work on Saturday…
It’s Shabbos Kodesh.
