Sandler, Adam - Bar Mitzvah Boy Lyrics




This is one that we don't play that much But, uh... but I figured it's fucking Jersey. I think you guys might enjoy this. So here we go. [cheers and applause]

Thirteenth birthday
People come from far away
Aunts and uncles show up
I brush my fro up
Feeling skittish
People speaking Yiddish
Buy a 3-piece suit and tie
Tailor's hanging on my thigh
Practice for the whole year
Paralyzed with fear
Hebrew flash cards on my walls
Voice is changing, dropped my balls
Dad's mad at the cost
Too bad Mom's the boss
Grandmas are full of joy

For the Bar Mitzvah boy
([man:] Bar Mitzvah boy)
Bar Mitzvah boy
([man:] Bar Mitzvah boy)
Bar Mitzvah boy
([man:] Bar Mitzvah boy)
Bar Mitzvah boy
([man:] Bar Mitzvah boy)

Okay, up on the podium
I'm staring out at everyone
Can't remember how it goes
Whistle from my rabbi's nose
Oh, man, this is it
Make up some crazy shit
Baruch atah, a cha-cha-cha
Everybody says, "Good job"
Now I'm done, sweet relief
Lipstick on Mama's teeth
Catholic friends all ask me this
"What the fuck is a knish?"
Kids are all coming in
Checks and bonds and fountain pens
Make a bank deposit
Make out in the closet

He's the Bar Mitzvah boy
([man:] Bar Mitzvah boy)
Bar Mitzvah boy
([man:] Bar Mitzvah boy)
Bar Mitzvah boy
Bar Mitzvah boy
Bar Mitzvah boy
([man:] Bar Mitzvah boy)

The rabbi does the Electric Slide
Grandma's ass is six feet wide
Party music never stops
All my friends drinking schnapps
Boys are short, girls are tall
Pass me the alcohol
Chug as much as I can
Vomit on the klezmer band
Mom and Dad yell at me
Disgrace my family
But I'm a man, so I don't care
Got my first mustache hair

I'm the Bar Mitzvah boy
([man:] Bar Mitzvah boy)
Bar Mitzvah boy
([man:] Bar Mitzvah boy)
Bar Mitzvah boy
([man:] Bar Mitzvah boy)
Bar Mitzvah boy
([man:] Bar Mitzvah boy)

And it's the best day of my life
Until three years later
When my parents stop Making me go to temple

[Laughter]

Very nice, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you.

Sandler, Adam Bar Mitzvah Boy Comments
  1. Lucre Films

    Just Love him 💗👍-Amanda Versemann

  2. who really cares

    “What the fuck is a kanish”

    💀 💀 💀

  3. Friendly Black Guy

    “Whistle from a rabbi’s nose”


    hahahah gross

  4. Scott Charney

    I only have one Jewish parent, my father, and I'm very glad that there was no talk of me having a bar mitzvah. (I never studied the Torah or anything like that.) I only went to four bar/bat mitzvahs, but it felt like forty. I hated anything to do with dancing, and that hasn't changed in the subsequent twenty-four years. I had no interest in girls (nor boys). I didn't want to be there, I was bored/nervous, wandering around and making multiple restroom trips, trying to find a place to hide, and feeling time crawl by. I dreaded those things months in advance.
    Thus, I cannot relate to this song/video at all.

  5. Kellen Hall

    Jewish ✋🏻

  45. לירון אביב

    Love it keep it up Netflix

  46. Thomas Trouchet

    There are times that I forget that Adam Sandler is actually quite talented.

    Also that Chris Farley tribute was very touching.

    Ryan Depratto

    @kenneth griffin how do you explain his great movie backlog? He's very talented. He just decided to start making dumb kids movies with his friends that make him tons of money.

    Esther Courson

    Cried hard during that chris farley tribute. Just think if he had lived hed probably be in all the movies that kevin james did. Just imagine Chuck and Larry or Grown-Ups with Chris in it.

    Holly Golightly

    Beautiful tribute to Chris Farley, he’s a great friend💋

    Jeremy Libreri

    Esther Courson I totally agree with you

  47. JustFormed TV

    Does anyone know the chords to play this ?

  48. Major Tim To Ground Control

    I was waiting for him to sing, "We didn't start the fire. It's was always burning since the world's been turning."

  49. rj Dlpng

    Sandman!

  50. Kevin Pritchard

    This guy gave us 90's kids so much entertainment:). Keep on ROCKING SANDMAN!!!!! We're still with you:)

    Ps,
    I'm drinking a YooHoo right now because that's what cool kids still do...

    SuperSuper2323

    "HILARIOUS"

  51. Rich D

    Is that a ghost with a ruler?

    Lorenzo Baxter

    It's part of the joke made in the special. Go watch it. Worth.

    Andrew Williamson

    Nah it's a Tesla in a neckbrace

    DNF Danninetyf

    Andrew Williamson - No its a guy with a blanket over his body with eye holes cut out. Or its a member of the KKK....You choose. There was no need for your sarcastic comment.

    Ben Lee

    It's a measuring tape, dipshit.

    iSustain

    No its the Oklahoma dad that he'll never sees again

  52. Xtra Terrestrial

    Love it. He’s amazing

  66. Jamie Roberts

    Love Adam Sandler!!

  67. Jan Michalčík

    The part from 0:12 to 0:40 reminds me of some other song. Can someone help me find it?

    Seth Dachenhaus

    I thought it was The end of the world song

    ilmedic59

    @Dylan Chase thank you, you're a god send!!!

    Idan Sapir

    All the day I’m trying to figure it out!! 👌👌

    Yuval Shalit

    @Dylan Chase thank you!! I almost gave up... ;)

    Kylie Pollert

    "It's the End of the World As We Know It" is a lot faster; it's really difficult to sing the verses all in one breath!

  68. Man Bun

    Adam Sandler now gives out "everything's going to be fine" vibe

  69. Sean Burns

    the special would have been better if he didn't refer to himself as "the sandman" i couldn't stop cringing. On a different note Sandler is a really good singer, and i thought overall it was awesome

  70. L23B

    Absolutely!

  71. Nerd616

    Best song ever

  72. Ronetteskified E

    I love Adam Sandler🤗

  73. Ticky Tacky

    I really really hope he got permission to use/ paid royalties to Billy Joel...

  74. Noah J. Herrera

    I really want the chris farley song!

  75. Eyes Jaded

    For some reason this song made me sad. Time is passing by quick.... love this song. The chorus gave me goosebumps

    Greg Wilczynski

    It’s the echo in the chorus. Something about it gives me goosebumps

    ab7dasker

    Same here, I get chills listening to this. And it makes me sad.

    There's a melancholy underneath this song. For a man with Sandler's experience in show business, wealth and fame to look back at his bar mitzvah as the happiest day of his life is kind of amazing. Usually people that famous seem pretty unrelatable, but it's really touching that Sandler shares our nostalgia for that adolescent feeling of discovery.

    DNF Danninetyf

    ab7dasker - Are you drunk?

    DNF Danninetyf

    ab7dasker - Stupid question..….. Were you drunk?

    Scott Charney

    @ab7dasker I only have one Jewish parent, my father, and I'm very glad that there was no talk of me having a bar mitzvah. (I never studied the Torah or anything like that.) I only went to four bar/bat mitzvahs, but it felt like forty. I hated anything to do with dancing, and that hasn't changed in the subsequent twenty-four years. I had no interest in girls (nor boys). I didn't want to be there, I was bored/nervous, wandering around and making multiple restroom trips, trying to find a place to hide, and feeling time crawl by.

  76. benja favre

    Renew Daredevil

  77. Utah Malone

    I watched the whole thing and it was hilarious

  78. Daniel Sharp

    This special restored my faith in Adam Sandler

    Daniel Heathers

    I was in shock for a couple hours after I watched it. It seems like he took all the criticism and decided to show he still had it.

  79. Bmw Speed Vlog

  80. James Martinez

    Adam seemed genuinely happy with this. Better than his movie face.

  81. Joe Terzi

    I rarely watch stand ups or “Netflix specials” but I grew up watching Sandler’s classics, happy Gilmore, billy Madison, big daddy, etc...... me and my father sat down and didn’t stop smiling! Fantastic show from Sandler guys still got it. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out u should.

    Jeromy Chavez

    #walletphone&keys#

    DNF Danninetyf

    His songs are very good but his jokes are stale as fuck.

    BeachJedi101

    Just watched Little Nicky 🤘

    N1GHT 2H4DE

    Fuck yeah, I watched this with my old man, he raised me on the sandman and I thank him for it. Referencing this special and his other songs is the normality back home. He's got a way with making some lucky guys bond with their dad's.

  82. yazdan pathan

    This is literally the best thing on Netflix right now

    PattyMayonnaise

    You should check out Stranger Things or even The Office

    Truth Forever

    Dave Chappelle also Baki

    DNF Danninetyf

    F is for family.

  83. Viennery

    Adam Sandler was good back when he did stuff like the wedding singer.

    Now everything he does is stupid, lazy, and not worth watching. The lack of effort he puts into his films and the low production value, yet high price tag makes me thinks he’s milking the system to give himself and his friends a large payout at the expense of the audience

  84. Rumble McTumbles

    I wish more people would give this special a watch, as bad as so many Sandler/Netflix projects have been. He's run through a lot of goodwill over the last several years with cash grabs and bad movies, but this is actually a good comedy special and uniquely Sandler but in a good way.

    Hartzy

    I watched the full thing after seeing this and I really loved it. So many great moments.

  85. Steven Rodriguez

    I grew up on your movies bro. Billy Madison & my personal favorite, Happy Gilmore. One of my favorite memories is seeing Waterboy opening weekend with my friends, going to the latest show on Saturday night because it's the most rowdiest & fun. We had to take turns waiting in the long line & smoke the joint before the movie started;) People wasted but we all laughed and cheered together

  86. Heyden Leekley

    Chris Farley part had be bawling

  87. assemble avengers

    So if Coal Sprouts is the Instagram manager for Netflix, then is Dil Sprouts the manager of the YouTube account?

  88. Rob 7

    His face is the same as Dylan's pity about the lyrics

  89. Glgpro 87

    Ver a adam viejo me pone triste ☹️

  90. John Ricc Evas

    Didn’t watch. Just wanted to say Adam Sandler is uber cringey and lame

    David Kleppe

    Jonathan Cuevas his recent movies yes. But this special was actually really well done

    Shona

    Just wanted to tell you to fuck off because no one wants your unsolicited opinion. It doesn't make you better than everyone else no matter how much you'd like it to be that way.

    Jack Ar

    You have no taste for music

  91. Sean Thompson

    At this point, why not just upload the entire show. Obviously no one is watching this garbage which is why you keep uploading it

  92. Sonny Urbine Reviews

    🤣❤

  93. White Devil Rants And Reviews

    Unlike most of the people in this comment section I happen to be a real fan of Adam Sandler and appreciate his comedy and everything he does. I'm happy Netflix doesn't cater to the negative people and continues to give him specials at work. Fuck anyone who says otherwise. This man was a huge part of my childhood and I still respect him.

  94. Arkham Assassin

    This was one really good special! Heartwarming and sweet but also very different

  95. Rosieli Silva

    Adoro Adam. Ele é muito engraçado 🤣
    ♥️😚👍🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷

  96. Harry Dean Satan

    Go away Netflix, still waiting for Half Life 3
