The Hanukkah Song
This is a song, that uh,
Theres a lot of Christmas songs out there,
But not too many about Chanukah,
So I wrote a song for all those nice little
Jewish kids who dont get to hear any Chanukah songs,
Here we go...
Put on your yarmulke, here comes Chanukah
Its so much fun-akkah to celebrate Chanukah,
Chanukah is the Festival of Lights,
Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights.
When you feel like the only kid in town without a Christmas tree
Heres a list of people who are Jewish, just like you and me:
David Lee Roth lights the menorrah,
So do James Caan, Kirk Douglas, and the late Dinah Shore-ah
Guess who eats together at the Karnickey Deli,
Bowzer from Sha-na-na, and Arthur Fonzerrelli.
Paul Newman's half Jewish; Goldie Hawn's half too,
Put them together, what a fine lookin Jew!
You dont need Deck the Halls or Jingle Bell Rock
Cause you can spin a dreidle with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock, both Jewish!
Put on your yarmulke, its time for Chanukah,
The owner of the Seattle Supersonic-ahs celebrates Chanukah.
O.J. Simpson, not a Jew!
But guess who is...Hall of Famer, Rod Carew, (he converted!)
We got Ann Landers and her sister Dear Abby,
Harrison Ford' a quarter Jewish, not too shabby!
Some people think that Ebeneezer Scrooge is,
Well, hes not, but guess who is: All three stooges.
So many Jews are in show biz,
Tom Cruise isn't, but I heard his agent is.
Tell your friend Veronica, its time you celebrate Chanukah
I hope I get a harmonica, on this lovely, lovely Chanukah.
So drink your gin-and-tonic-ah, and smoke your marijuan-ikah,
If you really, really wanna-kah,
Have a happy, happy, happy, happy Chanukah
