She Said "No"

“She Said No”

© Margot Stein, Rayzel Raphael, Bayla Ruchama, Juliet Spitzer

Without her gown, He summoned her down
Said it was his right, As a man with a crown
He was obsessed; She should be undressed
Vashti refused to be, a woman oppressed.

CHORUS:
She said “no” to the king,
She said “no” to the king,
She said “no-no-no-no-no-no-no”
She said “no” to the king!

The king then cried, “Find me a bride
She must be beautiful, And have no pride”;
When Esther came, He said “You I will tame
And if you don't like it, Well, Vashti's to blame!”

(CHORUS)

Esther took heart, that girl was so smart,
Thinking of others and doing her part
She was to find to get out of the bind
She needed her body and also her mind.

(CHORUS)

Esther was brave, but the court was depraved
And Haman the Evil One ranted and raved;
She took a stand, Yes, she made a demand
That the Jews should be saved throughout the land.

(CHORUS)
