GUEST,Gerry Origins: Pick a Bale of Cotton (58* d) RE: Origins: Pick a Bale of Cotton 08 Mar 20

There may be such a song; I've never heard one, but there are a great many Hebrew songs sung on the Sabbath, and undoubtedly a great many that I have never heard. But I think the guest may have been referring to a song for the Jewish holiday of Purim (which, coincidentally, begins here in a few hours from now), which consists of a repetition, to the tune of Pick a Bale, of a Talmudic phrase to the effect that the month of Adar brings joy.
