Their repertoire includes traditional Jewish melodies, current Israeli pop, classic rock, current Broadway hits, and contemporary radio hits, all rounded out with their unique Mezumenet parodies.

Let us Bench is a parody of Be Our Guest from the animated film Beauty and the Beast. It's about the only thing that's left to do after a long Shabbat lunch -- saying the Grace After Meals (Benching). The lyrics appear below the video.

Enjoy, and Shabbat Shalom!

Let us bench, let us benchLet us daven like a menschWe've been sitting here and talking and we really need a restChallah's gone, cholent tooSo there's one thing left to doIt's halacha and I don't lieDon't believe me? Ask the rabbi!

Time is short, I'm in a crunchAfter all it's way past lunchAnd I've already digested all this foodGo on and take that stepThis is no time to schlepSo let us benchLet us benchLet us bench

I got here at twelve o'clock And you never stopped your talkGossiping, oh it was funOh have you seen the rabbi's son?But politics don't thrill meAnd I have somewhere to beI don't mean to be complainingYou're no longer entertaining

We told jokesHeard your schtickNow come on, let's be quickOh the food was really great, I've no regretsBut drain that kiddush glassGet up and off your--tuchus!And let us benchLet us benchLet us bench

Life is so unnervingFor a girl who's so observingAnd my head just needs a bed to lay uponAh, those Shabbos naps when I was littleSuddenly those good old naps are gone

For hours we've been sittingAnd for me it's time for quittingI need exercise, a chance to use my limbsToday we just sat around the tableFlabby, fat, and lazyAnd it's making me go crazy

Let's not bench, let's not benchIt's not something we suggestYou haven't been here all that long And dear quite frankly you're our guestSo sit down, eat more foodIt's not time yet to conclude'Til the moonlight starts a-glowingLet us help you, we'll keep going

Course by courseSong by songWe'll stay here 'til day is doneThen Mez can sing you off to sleep as you digestWe know you love to schmooze(But I've just got to snooze!)So let's not bench (So let us bench!)Let's not bench (Let's bench!)Let's not bench (Miriam, you pulled this last week, I'm not doing it again!)Please let's not bench (The rabbi's son would be so disappointed!)
