Coming Home by Shmuel Sackett
When you’re feeling blue – not sure what to do
When your heart is racing, and you can’t stop pacing
When you’re depressed all day – not sure what to say
There’s just one place… that’ll put a smile on your face.
When you’re feeling stress – cause life’s a big mess
When things don’t click – dude, you’re really sick
When you can’t get to the phone – you are all alone
Drop everything my friend… and go straight home.
It is obvious, you see… it’s clear to me
That what’s true for you, is the same for every Jew
Cause you are not American, Canadian, Spanish or Haitian…
You are part… of the Jewish NATION!
You’re a Jew I say – that’s why you pray
To Hashem above – HE’S the one you love
So, don’t just stand there and act all frozen
Cause He picked YOU… man, you are CHOSEN!
It is time to leave – come home to Tel Aviv
Jerusalem, Hashmonaim, Tzefat or Shalavim
40 years in the sand – it took to come to this Land
But today there’s no pain – just hop on a plane
Times now are rough – so you gotta be tough
You can stand strong – it won’t be long
Hashem stopped the world… there’s a message for you
Look outside my friend… it’s totally NEW!
Come home now – you all know how
Just set a date – this is your fate
NOW more than ever, we have to be together
So, sister and brother – come home to father and mother
There are no fears – we waited 2,000 years
The world is on pause – maybe THIS is the cause?
Jew, you are a lion… you need to be in Zion
So, stop reading this poem… and Yiddale’ please come HOME!
