I thought you had your eye on your books.(Hodel chuckles)Tzeitel con't:And you have your eye on the Rabbi's son.Hodel:Well, why not?We have only one Rabbi and he has only one son.Why shouldn't I want the best?Tzeitel:Because you're a girl from a poor family.So whatever Yenta brings, you'll take, right?Of course right!(throws scarf over her head, imitating Yenta)(singing)Hodel, oh Hodel,Have I made a match for you!He's handsome, he's young!Alright, 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 found him.Won't 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 heard he has a temper.He'll beat you every night,But only when he's sober,So you'll alright.Did you think you'd get a prince?Well I do the best I can.With no dowry, no money, no family backgroundBe glad you got a man!Chava:Matchmaker, Matchmaker,You know that I'mStill very young.Please, take your time.Hodel:Up to this minute,I misunderstoodThat I could get stuck for good.Chava and Hodel:Dear Yenta,See that he's gentleRemember,You were also a bride.It's not thatI'm sentimentalChava and Hodel and Tzeitel:It's just that I'm terrified!Matchmaker, Matchmaker,Plan me no plansI'm in no rushMaybe I've learnedPlaying with matchesA girl can get burnedSo,Bring me no ringGroom me no groomFind me no findCatch me no catchUnless he's a matchless match.
