Lyrics to the song:

Stand stand for a tale so grand
Shushan is the place where it all began
The hidden miracle

One man, second in command
Slay all the Jews was his wicked plan
A scheme so miserable

He chose a day for the disaster
It's ironic what came after
He didn't know a girl named Esther
Would turn it upside down

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 (It was turned upside down)
Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass
just come on and come on and raise your glass

Esther became the queen
Cuz' God was pulling strings from behind the scenes
She wore the royal crown

3 days the Jews just prayed,
Queen Esther risked her life went to save the day
She took Haman down

The streets were filled with celebration
Everyone ate Hamantashen
Jubilation for the nation
Ken tihiyeh lanu... (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...
