I stepped off the bus in Mobile, Alabama
The sun was slowly setting on the bay
It was six o'clock on a simmer Friday Afternoon
Shabbos was an hour away
I walked around the town wondering what to do
Cause Shabbos is no time to be feeling blue
And then I saw a man who looked the same way too
I was quite relieved to find a fellow Punk Rock Jew

I asked the man I saw how many Jews in this town
He said to me there used to be a Minyan around
But one of us passed away and we've been feeling down
Yet now it seems as though another Jew has been found
Won't you stay with us for Shabbos Minyan Man

We walked down Winston Avenue a block then two more
And went into a shop that read closed on the door
There was a Minyan in the back of a Hardware store
Nine men waiting for one more
We ushered in the Shabbos with a beautiful song
The Chazan had a voice that was clear and strong
We sang out as one all Shabbos long
Then Maariv came again I had to be moving on

I asked the man I saw how many Jews in this town

He said to me there used to be a Minyan around
But one of us passed away and we've been feeling down
Yet now it seems as though another Jew has been found
Won't you stay with us for Shabbos Minyan Man

LET'S GO

Now that was twenty years ago and the vision is clear
And I think about it every now and then cause the place is still dear
And when I make this trip through Mobile once every year
I remember the men who prayed here
Now the Minyan is gone a few died some moved on
But the back of this store still remembers this song
The nine men who waited the one came along
How Shabbos was carried on a song

I asked the man I saw how many Jews in this town
He said to me there used to be a Minyan around
But one of us passed away and we've been feeling down
Yet now it seems as though another Jew has been found
Won't you stay with us for Shabbos Minyan Man
Oh won't you say with us for Shabbos Minyan Man
Please won't you sya with us for Shabbos Minyan Man
