To the tune of “The Surrey with the Fringe on Top”

While processing the subject files of Executive Vice President Stephen Solender this morning, I encountered a folder called David’s Party. The contents of the folder contain the preparation and planning for the retirement of the David Sacks as Distribution Committee Chairman, including song lyrics that praise Mr. Sacks to the tune of the musical Oklahoma’s “The Surrey with the Fringe on Top.”

Admittedly, it did take me a moment to piece together how the lyrics might work with the tune. If you need a refresher on the tune, please click here. There were several other songs from Oklahoma (with new lyrics) utilized to commend the retiring chairman, like “Oklahoma,” and “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning!”

A little bit of lightheartedness for a Friday. The tune, accompanying lyrics, and the creation of the D.C. Entertainment Squad for the party provide insight into another side of  UJA-Federation’s Distribution Committee.
