Rabbi this is my story about how
My life got flipped turned upside down
I'd appreciate a minute so I can prepare
I'll tell u how I became a Chabadnik in Niger
Was in West Side Manhattan born and raised
In yeshiva is where i spent most of my days
Reading and learning, davening all cool sababa
Visiting friends outside of school
When a couple of goyim, they were up to no good
Started making trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little attack
My ema got scared
And she said, “That's it! Your moving to Israel. It's better there”
Nu, I begged and pleaded with her the other day…stam

She gave me a ticket and I said it's not shabbos, so I'll kick it.
Economy class, yo this is bad.
My ema told me she donated the difference in the ticket to Chabad

Drinking New Square orange juice out of a cheap plastic glass (blame El Al)
Is this what the people of Niger live like?
Hmmm, oy vey what a flight!

I hopped in the cab and when it came clear, the cabdrivers arab beard in the mirror.
If anything I couldn't say this is rare, they drive cabs just about everywhere.
But I thought now forget it, now home to Rabbi Omer

I pulled up to the kibbutz about seven or eight
And I yelled to Ali Baba 'yo home smell you later'?
Looked at my kibbutz I was finally there, met up with my chaver, Yair who talked me into going to Niger.
