Lyrics:Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match.
Find me a find, catch me a catch.
Matchmaker,
matchmaker, look through your book
And make me a perfect match.

Matchmaker,
matchmaker, I'll bring the veil.
You bring the groom, slender and pale.
Bring me a ring,
for I'm longing to be
The envy of all I see.

For Papa, make him a scholar.
For
Mama, make him rich as a king.
For me, well, I wouldn't holler
If her were as handsome as
anything.

Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match.
Find me a find, catch me a
catch.
Night after night, in the dark, I'm alone.
So, find me a match of my
own.


Hodel, oh Hodel, have I made a match for you.
He's handsome! He's young!
All right, he's 62.
But he's a nice man, a good catch. True? True!
I promise you'll be
happy. And even if you're not,
There's more to life than that. Don't ask me
what!

Chava! I've found him! Will you be a lucky bride!
He's handsome. He's tall!
That is, from side to side.
But he's a nice man, a good catch, Right? Right!
You've heard
he has a temper. He'll beat you every night.
But only when he's sober- so you're all
right!

Did you think you'd get a prince?
Well I do the best I can.
With no
dowry, no money, no family background,
Be glad you got a man!

Matchmaker,
matchmaker, you know that I'm
Still very young. Please, take your time.
Up to this minute,
I've misunderstood
That I could get stuck for good.

Dear Yenta, see that he's
gentle.
Remember, you were also a bride.
It's not that I'm sentimental.
It's just
that I'm terrified!

Matchmaker, matchmaker, plan me no plans.
I'm in no rush. maybe
I've learned
Playing with matches a girl can get burned.
So bring me no ring, groom me no
groom,
Find me no find, catch me no catch.
Unless he's a matchless match
