'What Does Haman Say?'

It's that time of year again.

With Jews across the world preparing to celebrate Purim - the most joyous festival of the year - the spoof videos are coming hard and fast.

The most recent: "What Haman Say?", a parody of already rather bizarre "What Does the Fox Say" by Ylvis, and produced by the aptly-named  DiVine Productions.

The new video has clocked 32,701 YouTube views in just four days - but has some way to go before reaching the 379,772,851 people who viewed the original, which was in fact YouTube's most  viewed music video of 2013.

Does it do the original justice? You decide. 

See below for the lyrics.

King says come
Queen says no
Advisor says it's time for her to go

With Vashti gone
Achashveirosh
Needs a queen to call his own
Esther is brought
Shushan's abuzz
As the king goes oo la la
But there's one sound, that no one knows:

WHAT DOES HAMAN SAY???

Second to the king-a-king-a-king!
Bling-bling-bling-bling-blinga-blinga-bl­ing!
Special signet ring-a-ring-a-ring!

WHAT HAMAN SAY???

Ba ba ba ba ba ba BOW!
Ba ba ba ba ba ba BOW!
Ba ba ba ba ba ba BOW!

WHAT HAMAN SAY???

On your, on your knees you go!
On your, on your knees you go!
On your, on your knees you go! 

WHAT HAMAN SAY???

You you you you you you Jew you Jew!
You you you you you you Jew you Jew!
You you you you you you Jew you Jew!

WHAT HAMAN SAY???

Mordechai
Though he knows
Haman eyes him
He's composed

Haman's paused
He stands still
No he won't bend to his will

Haman is mad, this Jew's too bold
Time to kill him and his kind
Makes a decree, to be enforced
Kill the jews with no remo-o-o-o-orse
But of co-o-ourse
he l-o-o-o-st

Esther knew and told a-cha-shve-ro-o-osh
He went for a stroll
Came back and behold

WHAT DOES HAMAN SAY???

Nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-NO!!!
Nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-NO!!!
Nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-NO!!!

WHAT HAMAN SAY???

Pu-pu-pu-pu-pu-pu-put me down!
Pu-pu-pu-pu-pu-pu-put me down!
Pu-pu-pu-pu-pu-pu-put me down!

WHAT HAMAN SAY???

A-hee-ahee ha-hee!
A-hee-ahee ha-hee!
A-hee-ahee ha-hee!

WHAT HAMAN SAY???

Boo-hoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo!
Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo!

WHAT DOES HAMAN SAY???

Now Haman and his sons
Are ancient history
Hanging from his own gallows
While they hang from a tree
What is your sound?
We don't care anyway
You perished with your family
We're here to staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay

Arur Haman asher
bikesh l'abdi
baruch Mordechai
(G-d sent us a wake-up. We davened and Hashem forgave us. So Haman failed to slay us.)
ha' Yehudi.
I'm a Jew
I know who
Really runs the show
(G-d is the creator)
