Here Come the Rosh Hashanah Videos - "Apples and Honey are Good"


Apples and Honey are popular this year in Rosh Hashanah music videos. And a few music videos are using Honey, I'm Good, the song made popular by Andy Grammer, as the basis for a holiday parody.

With only two days until Rosh Hashanah, we picked this video as the best of the bunch. It's by Erez Cohen and features a large cast of characters, including juggler Sam Jacobs and cameo appearances by Hebrew rapper Kosha Dillz and Danielle Jacobs as Rebbetzin Rivka Leah Zelwig, whose hilarious videos we've featured on Jewish Humor Central. 

You'll find the lyrics just below the video.

Enjoy and Shabbat Shalom!

APPLES & HONEY ARE GOOD LYRICS:
Chorus:
Apples and honey are good
Wanna dip another but I probably should not
I’ve got so many at home
And if I stay I might just eat em ‘all

Apples and honey are good
Wanna dip another but I probably should not
So I’ve gotta bid them adieu
May your year be sweet and new
(Sweet and New)

Verse 1:
It's been a long, long year for Jews everywhere
Now the holiday season's in the air, (I’m singin' like)
I can't wait for the New Year feast tonight
Cuz in 10 more days we won’t eat a bite (Yom Kippur, like)

Oh baby, Oh maybe,
Could start this year right, baby,
my King has already got all of my love

CHORUS

Verse 2:
Oh we eat the head and not the tail
So we’ll be our best and never fail (now check it out)
I've got G-d and He's got me
So I’ll throw my sins to the fish in the sea (Singin’ like)

Oh baby, oh maybe
I’ve got no more wrongs, baby
my King has already got all of my love

CHORUS

Bridge:

Oh the shul is, shul is all dressed up in white
Oh, That Shofar, sound it makes me feel so alive
So Alive!
