Adam Sandler's Chanukkah Song

In honor of this wonderful holiday, everyone needs to listen to this song. So, press play and enjoy. I'll even give you the lyrics to help. :-)


This is a song that uhh..
There's a lot of Christmas songs out there and uhh..
Not too many Chanukkah songs.
So uhh..
I wrote a song for all those nice little Jewish kids who don't get to hear any Chanukkah songs.
Here we go...

Put on your yarmulke
Here comes Chanukkah
So much funukah
To celebrate Chanukkah
Chanukkah 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
Here's a list of people who are Jewish just like you and me
David Lee Roth lights the menorah
So do James Caan, Kirk Douglas, and the late Dinah Shore-ah

Guess who eats together at the Carnegie Deli
Bowser from Sha Na Na and Arthur Fonzerelli
Paul Newman's half Jewish, Goldie Hawn's half too
Put them together, what a fine lookin' Jew

You don't need deck the halls or jingle bell rock
'Cause you can spin a dreidel with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock - both Jewish

Put on your yarmulke
It's time for Chanukkah
The owner of the Seattle Supersonicahs
Celebrates Chanukkah

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's a quarter Jewish- not too shabby

Some people think that Ebenezer Scrooge is
Well he's not, but guess who is
All Three Stooges
So many Jews are in showbiz
Tom Cruise isn't, but I heard his agent is

Tell your friend Veronica
It's time to celebrate Chanukkah
I hope I get a harmonicah
Oh this lovely, lovely Chanukkah
So drink your gin and tonicah
And smoke your marijuanikah
If you really, really wannakah
Have a happy, happy, happy, happy Chanukkah
Happy Chanukkah

I've heard it before, and it totally put a smile on my face.
OMG, last night during my couldn't sleep hours, I watched something on TV, VERY informative about Judaism. I was very glad you gave us the crash course on the vocab, it helped me follow it some. But, yeah, so I thought of you last night as I was getting educated on Chanukkah and some of the other traditions. I loved it.

Sorry for posting twice, but I have a request. My husband and I would like to eat kosher. So I was wondering if you had any good recipes you could share. Thanks.
