The Rumor lyrics

The Rumor

(Yente)
"Rifka, I have such news for you"

Remember Perchik, that crazy student?
Remember at the wedding
When Tzeitel married Motel
And Perchik started dancing
With Tevye's daughter Hodel?
Well, I just heard
That Perchik's been arrested, in Kiev

(Others)
No!

(Yente)
Yes!

(Woman 1)
"Shaindel, Shaindel Wait till I tell you."

Remember Perchik, that crazy student?
Remember at the wedding
He danced with Tevye's Hodel
Well, I just heard
That Hodel's been arrested, in Kiev

(Others)
No! terrible, terrible

(Woman 2)
"Mirala."

Do you remember Perchik
That student from Kiev?
Remember how he acted
When Tzeitel married Motel?
Well, I just heard
That Motel's been arrested
For dancing at the wedding

(Others)
No!

(Woman 2)
In Kiev!

(Mendel)
"Rabbi... Rabbi."

Remember Perchik, with all his strange ideas?
Remember Tzeitel's wedding?
Where Tevye danced with Golde
Well, I just heard
That Tevye's been arrested
And Golde's gone to Kiev

(Others)
No!

(Mendel)
God forbid

(Others)
She didn't

(Mendel)
She did

(Avram)
"Terrible news. Terrible."

Remember Perchik
Who started all the trouble
Well, I just heard from someone who should know
That Golde's been arrested
And Hodel's gone to Kiev
Motel studies dancing
And Tevye's acting strange
Shprintze has the measels
And Bielke has the mumps

(Yente)
And that's what comes from men and women dancing!
