Jack grew up in New York City, on the plaza with a view
His parents were screaming Harvard, but he was just looking for You.
He came by for a Shabbos, we stayed up way past two
We spoke about a life of meaning, because he was just looking for You.
Men zuch nisht Dine Olam Haboh
Men zucht nisht Dine Gan Eden
Men vil nisht chapen Diner Melochim
Men zuch nohr Dich alein
We’re not looking for your Heaven’s doors
Not looking for your mirrored walls
Not looking to pull any strings
We’re just looking for you.
Jack's now Yakov Halevi, and our friendship really grew
He’s got a nice place in the old city, where he’s just looking for you.
Still a big fan of the Yankees, and a Harvard alumni too
But his grand-kids are keeping shabbos and singing this song about you.
