Lyrics: Aram Rubenstein Gillis & Michelle Citrin

I get a call on my cell
It is my Bubbe, Estelle
I pick it up and I yell,
“So Nu, How’s West
Palm Beach?”
she’s sobbing into the
phone
I say, “Hey Bubbe
what’s wrong”

It’s Zeyde, he’s almost
gone

Does he have a
heartbeat?”

Oh, his heart is okay
But, his keppie, oy vey
The election’s Tuesday
And he says he’s
Undecided

How could this happen

Don’t feel so guilty
but all his calls come
from right wing pishkes!

Are you serious?
It’s beyond me
He’s been watching
Fox news
I’m sorry Bubbe

He’s been yelling at a chair
Since the convention
Should I call him?
Yes, he likes attention

I’ll call him right-away

Ach,
my little lady!
I love you Bubbe
good!
Now call your Zeyde

How do I work this
damn cell
Hey Zeyde, this is
Michelle
It’s my granddaughter!!
Vell! vell!
sha-ina punim, vhat’s
nu?

Bubbe said we’ve
gotta talk
Put down your bagel and lox.
Before you check any box,
please just think this
thing through

Do you like your
Medicare?
Yes, I like my Medicare
Well, Romney wants to
cut our Medicare
Guten Himmel what a
shanda

But what about
Immigrants?
yeah, what about
“them”?
You and Bubbe
were born in Poland
What about gay
marriage
…..wait….

Did you think Shira

was just my
roommate?

But this piece on Israel

It’s la-shon hara
Go trash that flyer
it’s from a liar.

The ties between us
We’ll never sever
Our alliance
Stronger than ever

The President does
have a heimishe
neshama

Such a Neshama

Such a Nesha-sha-ma

So nu, why don’t you be a
mensch and vote Obama

Go vote Obama

I’ll vote Oba ah ma

From Miami to Detroit
To Pennsylanie

I’m calling Bubbe
I’m calling Zeyde

From Ohio
to Las Veg-ey

Call your Bubbe
Call your Zeyde

Before we
talked I was afraid this
would be so bad

This would be so bad

This would be so so bad

The time is short, so
much at stake and you
should know that

and you should
know that
So call your zeyde!
