COVID 19 MINYAN MAN/ MIN-YANIM

(Sung to the Tune of Minyan Man)

Original Minyan Man Song
Written and Composed by: Victor Shine

First Performed and Recorded by:
 Lenny Solomon (Shlock Rock)

Covid Lyrics Written by: Rabbi Benzion Scheinfeld

I sat at home, in Teaneck, New Jersey

The sun was slowly setting, towards PA

It was six o’clock on a March Friday afternoon

Shabbos was an hour away

I walked around my house wondering what to do

Cause Shabbos is no time to be feeling blue

The block was filled with Jews, quarantined in their homes

and I was forced to daven, alone

I asked the man I saw how many shuls in this town

He said to me, there used to be, so MANY around

But the Virus has come, and we’ve shut them all down

Not even, to say Kaddish, can a Minyan be found

(Original Line: Help us Hashem so we can praise you in crowds)

Oh Hashem, please help bring back, our Min-yanim

It started in China, a place so far away

Who thought it would come to the US of A

But sadly it spread, so swiftly and quick

And many people, soon became sick

But the world has mobilized, to help save the weak

The sacrifice and Chesed, is so special to see

Our health care workers, work bravely each day

For their health and safety, we constantly pray

I asked the man I saw how many shuls in this town

He said to me there used to be so MANY around

But the Virus has come, and we’ve shut them all down

Not even, to say Kaddish, can a Minyan be found

Oh Hashem, please help bring back, our Min-yanim

So, please Hashem, help us vanquish this foe

So back to our learning, and our shuls we can go

Who ever thought, that this could be

Torah Scrolls on Shabbos, we won’t see

We are trying our best, to do what we can

But we need your help, some heavenly plan

To stop all the sadness, and madness and pain

And bring joy, to the world, once again

2X I asked the man I saw…..
