Why can't there be Hanukkah in spring time?
Why'd they have to bury it in the snow?
Can't be right we're stuck with Hanukkah in winter
I want to spin the dreidel in the arc of the sun's warm glow
Hey guess what? When it's freezing here it's balmy
And beautiful in the hemisphere below
Yeah, when we're all suffering they'll be making merry
In a festival of lights when the oil burns slow

I wanna move to Capetown
I wanna move to Melbourne
I wanna move to Buenos Aires in the sun
I wanna move to Auckland
I wanna move to Girvin
I wanna move to Santiago, have some fun
When you feel the sun on your skin
And a warm breeze through your air
You'll never wanna let the light go out
Never wanna let the light go out

Why can't there be Hanukkah in summer?
Why they'd have to slip it on the ice
C'mon let's spin it in the opposite direction
Oh a Hanukkah down south might have more spice

I'm gonna move to Capetown
I'm gonna move to Melbourne
I'm gonna move to Buenos Aires in the sun
I'm gonna move to Auckland
I'm gonna move to Girvin
I'm gonna move to Santiago, have some fun

Capetown baby
Melbourne baby
Buenos Aires now
Auckland would be
Girvin could be
Santiago wow!
When you feel the sun on your skin
And a warm breeze through your hair
You'll never wanna let the light go out
Never wanna let the light go out

Don't let the light go out
It's lasted for so many years
Don't let the light go out
Let it shine through our love and our tears
