According to Elton John

OPENING SONG

“I Guess That’s Why They Call It the Blues”

This Shpiel, set in King Ashuerus's Palace, tells a Story of Queen Esther, sho may be more concerned about her shoes than saving the Jews.

Don’t wish us away
Don’t think this will last forever
Between this and that, I could honestly say
The songs will really get better

And while we’re singing
Don’t think of leaving your seat
And it won’t be long before you all have Oneg
In the place in our schul where we eat

And I guess that’s why they call us the Jews
Time spent with us, will be put to good use

Hated by Hamen, rescued by Esther
Telling this story, G-d is our tester.
And I guess that’s why they call us the Jews

Don’t stare into spaceUnknown
Trust us to tell you a tale
LIve on the pulpit without a rehearsal
And hope that the songs will not fail

Wait for the jokes
Sing with the words if it helps
But more than ever please simply enjoy
After all we’re not goys

And I guess that’s why they call us the Jews
Time spent with us, will be put to good use

Hated By Hamen, rescued by Esther
Telling this story, G-d is our tester.
And I guess that’s why they call us the Jews
