The Shabbat Zemirot are written as poetry/songs, and as such, can be kind of cryptic. (See questions tagged "shabbat-songs" for examples of questions about certain phrases in the songs.

Is there a source which explains and elucidates the sometimes cryptic verses (Much like this sefer explains some of the more cryptic passages in the Selichot prayers)?


This might be one such source:

Mateh Yehuda has a running commentary on Zemiros. I don't know how good it is, though.


I suggest this sefer in particular if anyone can find it online it would be appreciated
