Benny's No Lyrics - in Rap

A new singer Brad Wallace teamed with Bentzy Marcus to record a rap remix to Benny Friedman's single "No Lyrics."

Original track by Benny Friedman
Lyrics by Brad Wallace
Produced by Bentzy Marcus
Additional vocals by Chabad day camp

Verse 1
a niggun with no lyrics is what you perceive it to be/
from the family legacy of my man Avraham Fried/
Friedman Benny he be/
and the many will see/
Benny Friedman be the face of Jewish music industry/
I believe my enemies seek to destroy me/
but my ears will hear, and my eyes will see/
my soul destined to be/
before your throne of glory/
the righteous will flourish and grow like a tree

Verse 2
I admit and concede/
that they would have crushed me/
had I not believed/
in the Almighty/
it's the land of the living and there ain't no retreating/
hope in Hashem as my heart keeps beating

Chorus
there comes a point where every man discovers a time in his life/
where merely a spark of light/
uncovers and unveils, exposes the darkness of night/
if I can recognize all the blessings I receive/
I'm less inclined to only question, now I question and believe

Verse 3
I seek the path of the truth, walk the way of the righteous/
you lifeless/
if you think this life ain't priceless/
despite this/
materialistic world that we live in/
it's given/
that our souls reflect what is written/
this schism/
of realism/
they call TWISM/
can't see the vision of the Lord's eternal wisdom/
don't take it for granted/
like a seed that gets planted/
let your soul grow from wisdom, knowledge, understanding

Chorus
there comes a point where every man discovers a time in his life/
where merely a spark of light/
uncovers and unveils, exposes the darkness of night/
if I can recognize all the blessings I receive/
I'm less inclined to only question, now I question and believe

this life ain't what it seems/
gulus merely but a dream/
it's time to lead the way/
no need to be afraid/
we gotta keep the faith/
until we see the day/
children dancing in the streets/
singing songs of love and peace

The rap completes the song! The lyrics are meaningful and the addition of the choir makes it anthem material. Where has Brad Wallace been hiding?

BEST LYRICIST OF THE 20TH CENTURY ALL JEWISH
Nice try,but no lyrics.Havnt anyone heard of Irving Berlin,from Israel,George and Ira Gershwin.Eddie Cantor,Tin Pan Alley in the 20s,Are monsters today in 2010.These Lyricist make more money now,then the 20th Century.Charles,harry,henry,Fred Tobias inducted into ASCAP,Songwriters hall of fame.Music is all about Lyrics, today ,since the Early 1900s,that were only successful.Who cares about Rappers,unless your rapping Teffillin,on Jews.Its a good idea,to expand your knowledge,and understand the Great Songwriters,of the last 100 years.Im sorry,but music today,is Dead,unless you are a Prolific Lyricist.Dont close your minds to the greats,of the 20th century,great Jewish Songwriters. Zei-gu-zunt, JT

no lyrics
there's a reason its called no lyrics. and generally im sure most benny fans are not into rap. so why mess up a good song?

Bentzy Marcus is the man!
Move Aside Benny, 8th Day will always be the one and only single most best Jewish Band of all time.

refreshing music
1. why would you say "he's messing up the song" when the original is still there!....you dont like this one? then dont listen to it!

2: He is not trying to be mattisyahu or nosson zand...this is an original idea and personally i think the lyrics are great.

3: this man is NOT trying to bring this into lubavitch and be "mechanech dem kinder" he's an artist expressing himself, and collive decided to put it on their website.

4: WHY THE HATE?!!
(7/26/2010 1:48:08 AM)

awesome
wow this is amazing stuff!! do you have a cd? whens the next song coming out?

this is a joke, right??
i'm embarressed. i wanna cry
never mind the fact that it is an absolutely shocking failure of an attempt to rap, i just cannot believe this is where Jewish music is at. i totally agree with 36

BENNY,LEARN TO BE A LYRICIST
If you need help,i belong to the Songwritewrs Guild of America,that teaches songwriting,ASCAP, Warner Music.. Rap,in the Goim world,is looked at as Bad music,from Artists that are Violent.

wasted words
why do people insist on having the same endless debate? its the substance not the style people. the music we think sounds so Jewish, is just what all European music sounded like 150 years ago. You think 800 years ago Jewish music didn't sound like the same music that was popular in the world at the time? music is an expression of the soul. I feel like my own words are wasted too because in a month col will post some other video of someone else doing something not "jewish" and we'll have the same endless debate.

and again, to the people who keep attacking benny, he isnt singing the rap on this track so why do you keep addressing him??
(7/26/2010 9:25:35 AM)

i loved the real song but this...!!!

Maybe they can sing this in the subway, and go around with a hat. I think they will make lots of $$$.

Good job
nice...but I think you should get it remixed with some better sound

i agree with 42

i agree
i agree with 42 and 59 and think that a lot of the comments here are much more destructive than the song...mesiris nefesh of the tzaddikim was to go out of their way to find the good in other jews, not to be so quick to criticise...don't forget, you are talking about a fellow jew when you post hateful things...

awesome! thanks loved this song particulalry on the album and now i love it that much more.

and isnt it great that something like benny friedman makes me listen to less non jewish music! :)
(7/26/2010 7:56:35 PM)

Disappointed
Rap is vulgar. Just plain vulgar and unnecessary. So sad to see the influence seeping in, sweeping up.
(7/26/2010 10:06:48 PM)
63
hello!
All brad was doing is try to have some fun with a little twist....stop with the rude comments what the heck!!!
(7/26/2010 10:16:06 PM)
64
well done
great remix
and to all of you criticizers: rap is a style of music: either u like it or not
chassidic music was always influenced by the non jewish music of that era. that's a fact
(7/27/2010 6:19:44 AM)

did benny friedman agree 2 this??????
(7/27/2010 4:02:33 PM)

NO lyrics ;)
uhhhhh its supposed to have noooo lyrics! Hence the title... C'mon it was awesome as it was I looooooved the song why add anything??
(7/27/2010 9:47:51 PM)
67
Curious
Why is it called no lyrics is it because most of the song doesn't have lyrics or is it because the lyrics of the song is "No Lyrics Nigun" (at 3:19 in this video)?

#35 you are 100% correct, and I wish and pray that people like #49 will open there eyes and see how low they are going, America is not diffrent, we have to remember that as yidden we stand and have to remain standing higher then the rest of the world...
