I see him at the Cheder ⁣
I see him all the time ⁣
And even when I leave him ⁣
Can’t get him off my mind ⁣
אוי כי הם חיינו ⁣
Oy cuz it’s a rebbe’s life ⁣

The times that he’s successful ⁣
The times I watch him fail ⁣
The learning and the struggle ⁣
The nachas and the pain ⁣
אוי כי הם חיינו ⁣
Oy cuz it’s a rebbe’s life ⁣

I’ve tried rewards and prizes ⁣
And the wisest of advisors ⁣
Just to find out what he needs ⁣
For Yankele ben Gittel ⁣
Let me say one more kappitel ⁣
Gonna pray that he’ll succeed ⁣

Cuz it’s a rebbe’s life ⁣
We understand ⁣
We’ve got the future of the world in our hands ⁣
For tinokos shel bais rabban are the leaders tomorrow we’ll see ⁣
Yes, it’s a rebbe’s life ⁣
We know every child ⁣
Has got a spark of something special inside ⁣
And the Torah we teach ⁣
Is a flame that will reach ⁣
Every heart and soul ⁣
For generations to be ⁣

So many years later ⁣
I’ve left it all behind ⁣
But Yankele in Cheder ⁣
Will sometimes cross my mind ⁣
אוי כי הם חיינו ⁣
Oy cuz it’s a rebbe’s life ⁣

Then I attend a dinner ⁣
I meet the honoree ⁣
I say, “You look familiar” ⁣
And Yankel says “It’s me!” ⁣⁣
אוי כי הם חיינו ⁣
Oy, cuz it’s a rebbe’s life

My Yankel’s dedicated ⁣
To assisting kids in cheder ⁣
For whom learning’s really tough ⁣
He says “Rebbe I can guide ’em ⁣
Cuz I see the good inside ’em ⁣
And it’s all because your love!” ⁣
