My family sings a song on Purim that I am trying to track down. It is mostly Yiddish, with a little bit of Hebrew. The song starts with

פֿאַרוואָס זאָגט די תורה האָב נישט קיין מורא

and ends with

מחה תמחה את זכר עמלק

The song is obviously (from those lyrics) Jewish in content. Does anyone know what the title of the song is, and what the full lyrics are?

Welcome to Mi Yodeya, and thanks for bringing your question here. I hope you stick around and enjoy the site. Can you clarify (with an edit to the question) what you mean by "what this song is"? Do you want its title? its lyrics? its provenance? a summary of its lyrics? – msh210 Mar 19 '14 at 14:27
