Oy! What A Night

Oy what a night
Late December back in '62
Lousy fit on my bar mitzvah suit
I remember, what a night

Oy what a night
The rabbi didn't even know my name
All those Hebrew letters looked the same
My bar mitzvah, what a night

Oh I
I got a queasy feeling as I walked
In the shul
And I
Knew I was about to play the fool

Oy what a night!
Uncle Manny had too much to drink
Didn't he care what would the goyim think?
My bar mitzvah, what a night

I felt a blush as I stumbled through the Torah
Fell on my butt again while tryin' to dance the hora
What a night!
Oy, what a night
Oy, what a night
Oy, what a night!

Believe it or not, these were Lee Shapiro's actual suggestions for the lyrics. :)
