Is This The Way to Monticello

Performed by Marc Hoffman and the Bungaloafers.

Lyrics by Mike Pollock, Music by Neil Sedaka

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

When the day is dawning,

On a Catskills Friday morning

How I long to be there

Wife and kids all waiting for me there

Working in the City

Always leaves me flat

But the Country’s pretty,

And where my fam’ly's at

(Chorus)

Is this the way to Monticello?

Gonna give all my friends a big hello

Dreaming dreams of Monticello

Where my mishpucha waits for me

Show me the way to Monticello

Through the traffic, thick as Jell-O®

Driving up to Monticello

Where my mishpucha waits for me

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

My mishpucha waits for me

There’ll be Shabbos dinner

Pot o’ cholent starting to simmer

Crawling through construction

It’s a whole meshugah production

When I hit the Quickway

Cars in every lane

And nobody’s going

I might go insane

(Chorus)

Is this the way to Monticello?

Gonna give all my friends a big hello

Dreaming dreams of Monticello

Where my mishpucha waits for me

Show me the way to Monticello

Through the traffic, thick as Jell-O®

Driving up to Monticello

Where my mishpucha waits for me

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

My mishpucha waits for me

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

My mishpucha waits for me

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

My mishpucha waits for me

The Country Yossi Show 20120522

00:0000:00

Finally, it's the last Country Yossi Show of the season! Country and Heshy kicked things off by listing all the fantastic guests you couldn't believe they could squeeze into an hour-long program. And if the thought of that makes you crazy, you'll feel better after you hear what Country Yossi tells his psychiatrist!

Next up it's the world premiere of the soon to be hit single "Is This the Way to Monticello," written by your humble podcaster, Mike Pollock, and performed by Marc Hoffman and the Bungaloafers. If you like it, you're welcome to it. Download it from its very own podcast, elsewhere on this website.

And if you prefer some more serious musical stylings, check out our special guest, Mendy Werzberger, sharing some tracks from his new debut album "V’ani Tefilosi/Music You Can Feel!" in stores May 24th.


Read all about it in the Shavuos issue of Country Yossi Family Magazine, on newsstands now. Or maybe behind them, or beneath them. You never know.

Dov Shurin also checked in with the latest news from Eretz Yisrael.

If you've got nothing better to do, join us July 1st for the summer's first episode of Country in the Country, Sunday nights from 8 to 10 PM ET on Thunder 102 FM in Jeffersonville, New York, or online, or right here on this very podcast! And if you can't stand the Country Yossi deprivation until then, just download "Is This the Way to Monticello" and play it on an endless loop.

Country and Heshy kick things off on the penultimate show of the season with some witty observations on Medicine and Music.

Then the post-Sefira music returns with Country Yossi and the Shteeble-Hoppers' "I Am The Flower."

Next up it's a barrage of shailes, interrupted only by Dov Shurin and the latest news from Israel, some words from our gevaldigeh sponsors, and Rosh Chodesh Bentsching with Yossi's father, Chaim Toiv.

And before you know it, the show's over! Look for the Shavuos issue of the "Country Yossi Family Magazine" hitting newsstands everywhere, whether they like it or not.

We'll see you next week for one more show before we take our traditional pre-Summer hiatus, then it's time for Country in the Country!

Country and Heshy kicked off tonight's show by pondering the imponderables.

Then we heard the latest in our series of sefira-friendly a capella music from AKA Pella, "Birchos Avicha / Birchos Habanim", from their brand new CD:

Dov Shurin checked in with the latest news from Israel, and Hesh gave a heartfelt plea from The Fight To Free Jacob Ostreicher. Learn more and sign the petition at http://freejacobnow.com.

And will it be a Grand Prize Shutout? You'll have to listen and see! Or, rather, hear.

Tonight things got a little schticky as Country and Heshy joked about gardening, girls, growing up and golfing.

Then a little sefira-friendly a capella music from AKA Pella, and the world premiere of their own version of 8th Day's "Ya'alili," which is completely and totally insane, from their brand new CD:

Shortly thereafter, from The Yeshiva Boys Choir's latest album, we heard "Yiram".

Then a little visit with Dov Shurin and the latest news from Israel, and a chat with CD Eichler with all the details about the release of AKA Pella's new CD.

That, plus some Grand Prizes being handed out, and it sounds like a fine way to spend an evening, no?
