This should make you laugh:

In the early 70's the Sokagakkai in the USA had many new members of Jewish descent. They changed the lyricsto "Hava Nagila" and it became a popular song at Sokagakkai pep rallies:

Have a Gohonzon

Have a Gohonzon

Have a Gohonzon

Chant for awhile!


When day is dawning

Gongyo each morning

Keeps you from yawning

And makes you smile!


You'll find that you will be

full of vitality

Watching your benefits

grow in a pile!


You will find the day goes smoother

even if you've been a loser!

Your surrounding may seem loony

Just remember Esho Funi!

Turn it on! Karma's gone!

And be happy evermore!


(start at beginning and repeat until you wear out the brass players in the band)
