What I like About Jew

With a group name like that, you can pretty much guess what their music is about.

I heard them sing a song just now on NPR from their new album, Unorthodox.

They Tried to Kill Us (We Survived.  Let’s Eat)

A perfect Passover song.  (Passover begins tomorrow night.)

First verse, and chorus (follow the link for the rest):

We were slaves to pharaoh in Egypt
The year was 1492
Hitler had just invaded Poland
Madonna had just become a Jew
Moses was found on the Potomac
Then he marched with Martin Luther King
He came back to free us from our bondage
‘Cause S&M has never been our thing

They tried to kill us, we survived, let’s eat
They tried to kill us, we were faster on our feet
So they chase us to the border
There’s a parting of the water
Tried to kill us, we survived, let’s eat
