There are so many beautiful Christmas songs around
And so few Chanukah songs
So I thought we'd try this one for you
Put on your yamakah
Here comes Chanukah
So much funikah to celebrate Chanukah here

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
Here's a list of people who are Jewish
Just like you and me!

David Lee Roth
Lights the Menorah
So do James Cann, Kirk Douglas and the late Dinah Shora
Guess who eats together at the Carnegi Deli
Bowser from Sha Na Na and Arthur Fonzarelli!

Paul Newman is half Jewish
Goldie Hawn is too
Put them both together
What a FINE looking Jew!

You don't have to Deck the Halls with Jingle Bell Rock
Because you can spin a dreidel with Captian Kirk and Mr. Spock!
(Both Jewish!)

Put on your yamakah
Here comes Chanukah
Some much funikah to
Celebrate Chanukah!

OJ Simpson
Not a Jew!
But guess who is?
Hall of Famer Rod Carew!

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 on my list
Tom Cruise isn't
But Jesus Christ is!

Put on your yamakah
Here comes Chanukah
So much funikah to
Celebrate Chanukah here!

Chanukah is
The festival of lights
Instead of one day of presents
We have eight crazy nights!

So tell your friend Veronica,
Its time to celebrate Chanukah
And don't forget harmonica
On this lovely, lovely Chanukah!
So drink your gin and tonicah
Don't smoke your marijuanikah!
If you really, really wannukah
Have a happy, happy, happy, happy Chanukah!

Oh yes
Happy Chanukah y'all
