"Pirim Pirim Pirim" as sung by Arkady Gendler 
(from Di Naye Kapelye's "Traktorist")

Oy Purim, Purim, Purim,
A yederer hot im lib
Kabtsonim un g’virim
Es iz a freyd in shtib

M’khapt a nash, a homentash,
Un oy es vilt zikh nokh.
Vi nemt men ot dem Purim
Khotsh tsvantsik mol a vokh?

Motke iz nit fun di bokherim
Vos es zhalevet dos gelt
Abi es kimt der liber Purim
Brent er gor a velt….

Mizrekh, mayrev, tsofn, dorem,
Naye Homens sharfn tseyn
G-t vel helfn, s’vet bay yidn
Gedekhter Purim zayn…
. 


Yes, it's spelled "Purim" here, to reflect standard (Litvak) usage.  Galitsyaners and Hungarians call it "Pirim".  Nu?
