(So should it be for us) So raise your glass if you can see, the hidden meaning, it's right in front of you, we will never be never be anything but proud to tell the story, v'nahafoch hu Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass just come on and come on and raise your glass So get your costumes on Make noise and drown out Haman Don't drink like a fool And remember and remember What the day's about... So raise your glass if you see God in hidden places, He's right in front of you, We will never be never be anything but proud to tell our story v'nahafoch hu So raise your glass if you can see the hidden meaning, it's right in front of you, we will never be never be anything but proud to tell the story, v'nahafoch hu Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass just come on and come on and raise your glass...
