The guys who originated today’s contemporary Jewish a cappella sound are setting the bar again with their Pesach adaptation of the song that’s on the lips of every little aspiring Disney princess and has taken the world by storm. “We’re really proud of this one,” says producer and director Mike Boxer. The track has some gorgeous harmonies and grooves, and with a little something for everyone, the video is already on its way to going viral. Guaranteed to keep you smiling while you clean.

This song and all Six13 songs are completely a cappella — created with nothing but the human voice.


The Nile ran fast through the desert that night
But the water, it was red
The kingdom was full of locusts,
With frogs jumping in their beds
The Jews were slaving, building Ramses and Pithom
Moses said, “it’s time to say, shalom”

Pharaoh said “no, don’t set them free”
He was a bad guy who brought us misery
But God’s strong hand began to show
And thus said Mo:

Let them go, let them go,
Or He’ll plague Egypt some more
Let them go, Pharaoh,
Say the word and we’re out the door

This nightmare
Needs to end today
Let our tribe march on
We won’t let the waters stand in our way

Do you want some afikoman?
It’s just unleavened bread
Those four questions that I asked before,
I have one more:
Can I have cake instead?

We once were slaves in Egypt
And now we’re not
So that’s why we don’t eat rye
Do you want some afikoman?
You can feel free to say no, man
How ’bout brei?

God took us out, and dayenu
When we got to the sea, we walked right through
There was no time for bread to rise

Let us go, God let us go
We were gone before the dawn
Let us go, Pharaoh
Changed his mind, but we were gone

Here we stand,
On this holiday
Bring the seder on,
Our freedom endures to this very day
