MY ZELDA
Tune: "Matilda" by King Radio
As recorded by Allan Sherman on "My Son, the Folk Singer" (1962)

Oy!
My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.
Once again now!
My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.

My Zelda she found her big romance
When I broke the zipper in my pants.
My Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.

Ev'rybody!
(My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.)
Sing along with Moishe now!
(My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.)

It's almost too sad to tell to you.
She took seven books of Green Stamps, too.
My Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.

Ev'rybody!
(My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.)
Once again now!
(My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.)

That tailor he really hurt my pride,
He made my lapels an inch too wide.
My Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.

Ev'rybody!
(My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.)
Once again now!
(My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.)
Members of Hadassah!
(My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.)
Ev'rybody!
(My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.)

Oh, why did she go and fall in love?
I haven't seen her since Tisha B'Av.
My Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.

Ev'rybody!
(My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.)
Sing a little softer!
(My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.)
Ev'rybody!
(My Zelda, my Zelda, my Zelda, she took the money and ran with the tailor.)
