A word I can use to gain naches from Jews......
Chaputzvah... chaputzvah, chaputzvah, chaputzvah!
With a wonderful shtick like this I could never lose....
Chaputzvah... chaputzvah, chaputzvah, chaputzvah!

Chaputzvah, chaputzvah.......chaputzvah!
A great Yiddish word called “chaputzvah”..
And once the word is said,
A wave of Jewish cred, for me.....

I’ll top off my speech with “chaputzvah”!
I’ll then be such a macher
Address the goyim later, you’ll see!


Say it loud, many votes it’ll win ya...
Say it soft, like a Jew from Virginia...
I’ll never stop saying Chaputzvah!

(I'll admit "chutzpah" may have been a more geherik word)

this falls into the TK Jingle "one hit wonder" file. I think this is one of my all time favorite jingles and seems crazy this is jcrocket's only submission. Great lyrics, so funny and great voice... Would love him to contribute more! "Say it soft, like a Jew from Virginia..." (awesome line!)

In case it isn't obvious... Every Yiddish word besides "chutzpah" and "geherik" is intentionally mispronounced in homage to both Tommy Norment and TK's rant that people often abuse Yiddish words. The ending is the one moment of clarity

Um, Jer, I think its pronounced "schtick".

The thing about this whole thing that still bugs me is that Norment used "chutzphah" in the wrong way even if he HAD pronounced it properly. The pronunciation of "macher" here almost makes up for that. Too much!!

Love the TK jingles. Highlight of my commute into work every day. Seems to me Chaputzvah is begging to be turned into a parody of "Shipoopi" from The Music Man. I'm just saying...

So glad this got airtime so it could be heard by folks outside of the Website community. This was a ton of fun to mix & perform. As expected, the "Jew from Virginia" line kilt.

It really is a perfect jingle. I'm betting this gets played today to cap off the week of "chaputzvah."
