Front Lobby Pressure (parody of Surface Pressure, Encanto)

 

We’re the strong ones, we’re not nervous

We’re as tough as the crust of the cha-llah is

 

We move ha-arts, we move shu-uls

And we kvell ’cause we know what our worth is

 

We don’t ask how hard the work is

Got volunteers for every purpose

Zoomdalah, and youth groups, classes, and kiddush

Our member-ship’s growing, Ner Tamid is glowing

But

Under the surface

I feel meshugah-as

a tightrope walker in a three-ring circus

Under the surface

Was David ever like “Yo, I don’t want to fight Golias?”

Under the surface

I’m pretty sure we’re worthless; toilets’ out of service

A flaw and a crack

The straw in the stack

That breaks the lobby’s back

What breaks the lobby’s back it’s –

 

Leaking like a drip, drip, drip that’ll never stop, whoa

Carpet’s tearing like a rip, rip, rip ’till it just goes pop, whoa

If you think you’re old, our lobby’s older

Decades of wear and tear it can’t shoulder

Who are we if we don’t have a front hall?

 

If we stick with –

Styles that were hip, hip, hip, 60 years ago, whoa

Bathrooms like a jail, jail, jail, how would I know, whoa

If you think you’re old, our lobby’s older

Decades of wear and tear it can’t shoulder

Who are we if we don’t have a front hall?

If we falter

 

Under the surface, I hide my nerves, fallen plaques gonna hurt us

Under the surface, The shul doesn’t swerve, despite the big bu-dget

Under the surface, I think about our purpose, can we somehow preserve this?

Our building’s dominoes

A light wind blows

You try to stop it tumbling

But on and on it goes

 

But wait –

If we could raise some big donations for renovations

Would that free some room up for G-d

Torah, and prayer, or time together,

Instead we measure this growing pressure

Keeps growing, keep going

‘Cause our whole roof is

Leaking like a drip, drip, drip that’ll never stop, whoa

Glass is cracking like a crack, crack, crack ’till it just goes

pop, whoa

If you think you’re old, our lobby’s older

Decades of wear and tear it can’t shoulder

Who are we if we can’t raise the cash?

 

If we stick with –

Styles that were hip, hip, hip, 60 years ago, whoa

Bathrooms like a jail, jail, jail, how would I know, whoa

If you think you’re old, our lobby’s older

Decades of wear and tear it can’t shoulder

Who are we if we can’t raise the cash?

All it takes

Please help us raise,

No pressure!
