THE BAR MITZVAH SONG- Composed By Abie Rotenberg- Marvelous Midos Machine Episode 4

In a few days, I will be Bar Mitzvah,
For which I’ve worked so hard and prepared,
And I think that I’m ready to keep every Mitzvah
So why am I feeling so scared?

I’ve learned how to put on Tefillin,
How to Lein my Haftorah with Tropp,
But just because I will count for a Minyan,
Does it mean I’ve really grown up.

Now I think I’ve come up with the answer,
And I hope you’ll confirm my result,
Oh, I know the exact time and moment,
When a kid turns into an adult.

No, it’s not when a boy reaches 13,
Or the day that a girl becomes 12,
Kids are ready to do all the Mitzvohs
When they stop thinking just of themselves.

In a few days, I will be Bar Mitzvah,
For which I’ve worked so hard and prepared,
And I think that I’m ready to keep every Mitzvah
So why am I feeling so scared?

The Seforim I have are the finest
And my black hat looks great on my Kop
But just because I’ll now fast on each Taynis,
Does it mean I’ve really grown up.

Now I think that I have the solution,
Upon which the answer depends,
It’s when we kids start asking the question,
What can we do for parents and friends?

Or when we start to care for their feelings,
And oh, how much that it means to them,
We’ll remember that up in Shomayim
We have our dear Father and Friend.

Oh, the day that everyone is Bar Mitzvah-ed,
Is when that special feeling is found,
When we think about how much Hashem loves us,
And try hard to not let him down
Try hard to not let him down…
Try hard to not let him down…
