Just a Tad of Charoset

(To the tune of "Just a spoon full of sugar")

Just a tad of charoset helps the bitter herbs go down,
The bitter herbs go down, the bitter herbs go down.
Just a tad of charoset helps the bitter herbs go down,
In the most disguising wayOh, back in Egypt long ago,
The Jews were slaves under Pharoh.
They sweat and toiled and labored
through the day..

So when we gather pesach night,
We do what we think right.
Maror, we chew,
To feel what they went through.

So after years of slavery
They saw no chance of being free.
Their suffering was the only life they knew.
But baby Moses grew up tall,
And said he'd save them all.
He did, and yet,
We swear we won't forget.

While the maror is being passed,
We all refill our water glass,
Preparing for the taste that turns us red.
Although maror seems full of minuses,
It sure does clear our sinuses.
But what's to do?
It's hard to be a Jew!!!
