As I close out Purim and start to consider Pesach, I’m finding myself a bit Hamilton obsessed (I know I’m not alone).  And, as I’m still in a song parody state of mind, I’m working on a few Hamilton Seder Songs.  This is still, very much, a work in progress, but curious what you think!! Please share your thoughts and suggestions. I’ll share the final product when it’s done (and the future songs to come).

Here’s the youtube video of The Story of Tonight, so you can sing along:

LEADER:

We may not eat before our seder!

TABLE:

We may not eat before our seder!

LEADER:

But we will gladly tell the tale!

TABLE:

But we will gladly tell the tale!

LEADER:

And when our children tell this story…

TABLE:

And when our children tell this story…

LEADER:

They’ll tell the story like tonight

TABLE LEFT

Let’s tell another way tonight

TABLE RIGHT

Let’s tell another way tonight

LEADER

Let’s tell another way tonight

ALL:

Drink 4 cups for freedom

Something that our people had to gain

4 promises God told us

Drink 4 cups to those promises

God told us God would exit us

Telling this story now tonight

We tell this story now tonight

Drink 4 cups for freedom

God said God would deliver us away

And God will still redeem you

Let’s have another glass tonight

Raise a glass to four promises

God will make a people out of us

Who tells this story now tonight

Let’s have another glass tonight

We’ll tell the story now tonight

Drink 4 cups for freedom

We’ll tell the story now tonight

Drink 4 cups for freedom

We’ll tell the story now tonight

We’ll tell the story now—

Tonight
