Song Lyrics:
I see him at the cheder, I see him all the time
And even when I leave him, can’t get him off my mind
Aay, כי הם חיינו . Aay, cuz it’s a rebbe’s life.
The times that he’s successful, the times I watch him fail
The learning and the struggle, the nachas and the pain
Aay, כי הם חיינו . Aay, cuz it’s a rebbe’s life.
I’ve tried rewards and prizes, and the wisest of advisors
Just to find out what he needs.
For Yankele ben Gittel, let me say one more kappitel
Gonna pray that he’ll succeed.
Cuz it’s a rebbe’s life, we understand
We’ve got the future of the world in our hands
For תינוקות של בית רבן are the leaders tomorrow we’ll see.
Yes, it’s a rebbe’s life, we know every child
Has got a spark of something special inside
And the Torah we teach, is a flame that will reach
Every heart and soul, for generations to be.
So many years later, I’ve left it all behind
But Yankele in cheder, will sometimes cross my mind
Aay, כי הם חיינו . Aay, cuz it’s a rebbe’s life.
Then I attend a dinner, I meet the honoree
I say, “You look familiar”, and Yankel says “It’s me!”
Aay, כי הם חיינו . Aay, cuz it’s a rebbe’s life.
My Yankel’s dedicated, to assisting kids in cheder
For whom learning’s really tough.
He says “Rebbe I can guide ‘em, cuz I see the good inside ‘em
And it’s all because your love”.
