When we say that food is kosher
Do you know what we mean?
We may eat only certain animals
That are tahor, which means clean

B’nei Yisroel all gathered to learn
In the parsho of shemini
That we must eat only Kosher food
So to Hashem, holy we can be

All of the animals which we may eat
Must have split hooves on their feet
And they must chew their food over again
We know the animal is Kosher, then

Moshe taught us in great detail
That Kosher fish must have fins and scales
Most of the bugs or creatures that crawl
We may never eat at all!
