Weekend Dayenu

It would help to know the song “Dayenu” if you want to read this post. *grin* And yes, I know that traditionally each verse of Dayenu is praise for the good thing that happened, not saying what SHOULD have happened, but hey, poetic license. I started and ended properly. For those of you who do NOT know Dayenu, but would like to hear a decent version of it (I cannot believe how many youTube versions there are of which I do NOT approve), I found this one: passover Dayenu I don’t know who they are, but basically they sing it the way *I* do – only the first 3 (of innumerable) verses and they sing it peppy. We do it fast and loud. *grin* So, here while we are still a good 6 months away from the REAL Dayenu, I give you Ahuva’s Weekend Dayenu:

If I’d only broke my diet,
ate bad foods, sat nice and quiet,
If I’d only broke my diet,
Dayenu!

(chorus)
daih, dayenu
daih, dayenu
daih, dayenu
dayenu, dayenu!

If I’d only danced and partied
Danced with Sam and waved to Charlie (names changed to protect the innocent… guilty? *grin)
If I’d only dance and partied
Dayenu! (chorus)

If I’d only not slept badly,
tossed and turned, no resting gladly,
if I’d only not slept badly,
Dayenu! (chorus)

If I’d only packed much earlier
not waked up so rushed and surlier
If I’d only packed much earlier
Dayenu! (chorus)

If the van were built much smaller
meant for me not one much taller
If the van were built much smaller
Dayenu! (chorus)

If the weather had been sunny
Lots of music, fast and funny
If the weather had been sunny
Dayenu! (chorus)

If furniture could move by itself
bed, and chair and even bookshelf
If furniture could move by itself
Dayenu! (chorus)

If I’d brought all the stuff with me
not shopped at stuff-store and grocery
If I’d brought all the stuff with me
Dayenu! (chorus)

If I weren’t so compulsive
Had to do all that I could give
If I weren’t so compulsive
Dayenu! (chorus)

Thank Days Inn for clean hotel room
hot shower complete with shampoo
bed at 10, 4 up again
Dayenu! (chorus)

Interstate was dry and empty
me and trucks flew low, so tempting
made it home by rental deadline
Dayenu! (chorus)

Dropped off van, took dip in hot tub
what I needed was a back rub
went to sleep, woke, felt much better
DAYENU! (chorus)

    Aw, this was a very good post. Finding the time and actual effort
    to generate a good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and never seem to get nearly
    anything done.
