Moes, moes

The satirical Yiddish song 'Moes, moes' (Money, money) was written by an unknown author in the Warsaw ghetto. Based on an American jazz melody, it talks overtly about corruption and decline within the ghetto, and the ways in which some inmates continued to live well while others suffered poverty and degradation.
