My name is Moti and soon I’ll be three
 
My parents are making a party for me
 
It’s more than a birthday, as you’ll read in this rhyme

We’re going to cut my hair, for the very first time

An “upshernish” is Yiddish, it means cutting hair

A kippah and tzitzit, I’ll now get to wear

The Torah compares a little boy to a tree

Whose fruit may not be cut, until it turns three

If its roots are well nourished, it will grow strong and pure

And then the tree - just like me - will always stand secure

My new kippah and peyot will announce clear and loud

That I am a Jewish boy and I’m so very proud

No more brushes and pins, no more ponytails and curls

Never again will I hear “what a cute little girl!”

So come take a snip, my hair I won’t be missin’

Please join us for this beautiful tradition.
