Esther and Freddie Mercury (aka Purim Will Rock You!)

A couple of months ago an old friend who now lives in Israel announced that she needed to adapt the story of Esther to the queen tune “We Will Rock You.” The following popped into my head and I sent it to her, but I thought I would share it here as well:

Haman you’re a sham.  You’re a bad bad man.
Build a stockade gonna try to hang Mordecai some day
You’ve got no sign of grace
You’re a big disgrace
Tryin’ to wipe the Jews all out this place.

God will. God will smite you!
God will. God will smite you!

Now, Esther is a Jew and gonna get you.
Gonna’ tell the king everything that you’re plannin’ to do.
They are chosen race
You’re a big disgrace
Tryin’ to wipe the Jews all out this place.

God will. God will smite you!
God will. God will smite you!

Hamman you’re a bad man doomed man
Gonna’ lead Mordecai through this town all day
Then you’ll make your case
Gonna fall on your face
They’re gonna wipe your memory all out this place.
