Listen to a short story
maybe even a bit funny
about the day I met
Gabby and Debbie
with the magic stick.

I went over one evening in all innocence,
looked around here and there,
when suddenly everyone was talking English,
and they all went black and white.
Everyone was there:
Miss Ding Dong Scooterman,
and that cowboy whatsisname.
There was Dr Half-baked,
Mr. Kashtan,
Yirmi Kaplan and his dad too.
and Gabi & Debbie but they were apart.
Debbie seemed pissed, and Gabi troubled.
They said theyd lost
some magic stick,
and asked me if Id mind
helping them find it?
Said Cool there a prize for the finder?
They told me
That if I find it, theyd fly me
to any place in the world I wanted.
Found the stick in a flash,
cos Gabi put it in his back pocket, the jerk

"Woohoo" I yelled
like an ecstatic Homer Simpson
Let's fly to Paris to the Sheraton Plaza
There there's Bru La Fot an amazing brothel
That's where I want to be
Debi cleared her throat and said
You have to understand we'd be quite pleased
But unfortunately for you we've got some restrictions
First of all this is educational TV
And the message has got to be positive
You can't come up with something a bit more Zionist?
What Zionist? I said what? Like Herzl?
Whoops! We landed in Basel.

Herzl was leaning on the rail
completely relaxed
As soon as I saw him it turned me off
He wasn't ashamed to stare
like nothing was happening
All of Israel is up in flames,
What, is he really so thick?
I looked him in his eyes
real good from up close
his pupils were wide
and the white of his eyes all red

Pss...I whispered that it seems to me he's stoned
Gabi said to shut up, play it cool
But I couldn't control myself and continued needling
the visionary of the State without embarrassment
All the details of the cruel
and tough reality of Israel

I told him of the traffic accidents
And I told him about the handicapped on strike
I told him about the quarter million unemployed
And I told him about the corrupt politicians
Herzl didn't respond, only smiled a broad smile
putting his hand into his pocket,
I tried to tell him there's no peace
and there's no security
and that I'm fed up living in constant fear
Herzl put a tablet on my tongue and said,
"If you swallow it, it won't be a dream."

I couldn't understand
what was happening to me, really
Suddenly I had a rifle in my hands
And I found myself at the battle of Tel Hai
I don't want a weapon, I have no desire
I've got a psychological discharge

But Gabi told me
that the story of Tel Hai
Is really meaningful
and worthwhile to learn about it
I spotted Trumpeldor immediately, yeah
The one with the hand, actually without
How are you Yosef? I asked politely
But Trumpeldor was anxious and angry
Suddenly the wind raised a cloud of dust
Trumpeldor choked
and spit
literally next to us
Afterwards he coughed and said
"It's good to throw up on our country"

Suddenly everything felt like it was too much for me
My legs failed and I fell to the floor
and yelled enough!!!
This trip was supposed to be
something really special
It's no fun with you at all
You screwed me, you screwed me
Debi recovered first
and turned to me with real understanding
You're right she said, now we'll fly
Wherever you want wherever you say
Oh, finally
Just not to Jerusalem 2002 I said
But apparently they didn't hear the not
Because precisely to here
To where?
Precisely to here
To where?
Precisely to here I came back
