Stand stand for a tale so grand Shushan is the place where it all began The hidden miracle One man, second in command Slay all the Jews was his wicked plan A scheme so miserable He chose a day for the disaster It's ironic what came after He didn't know a girl named Esther Would turn it upside down So raise your glass if you can see the hidden meaning, it's right in front of you, we will never be never be anything but proud to tell the story, v'nahafoch hu (It was turned upside down) Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass just come on and come on and raise your glass Esther became the queen Cuz' God was pulling strings from behind the scenes She wore the royal crown 3 days the Jews just prayed,  Queen Esther risked her life went to save the day She took Haman down  The streets were filled with celebration Everyone ate Hamantashen Jubilation for the nation  Ken tihiyeh lanu... (So should it be for us) So raise your glass if you can see, the hidden meaning, it's right in front of you, we will never be never be anything but proud to tell the story, v'nahafoch hu Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass just come on and come on and raise your glass So get your costumes on Make noise and drown out Haman Don't drink like a fool And remember and remember What the day's about... So raise your glass if you see God in hidden places, He's right in front of you, We will never be never be anything but proud to tell our story v'nahafoch hu So raise your glass if you can see the hidden meaning, it's right in front of you, we will never be never be anything but proud to tell the story, v'nahafoch hu Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass just come on and come on and raise your glass...
