Sex Appeal! Sung (then) by Benzion Witler and Adam Aston - now by Mappamundi!

UPDATED so I can post the video we made last month at the Shadowbox Studio, thanks to Mark Sidell for the audio and Paul Deblinger for the video. This was one of the first songs Beth and I found that existed in both a Polish version, lyric is by Ludwik Starski (see the iconic performance by Eugeniusz Bodo singing "Sex appeal" in drag) and a Yiddish version, written by Igor S. Korn-Teurer, more famous for serious Holocaust poetry. (Menasze Oppenheim singing "Sex Appeal" in 1938)
If you want the words write me.
