THE HANNUKAH SONG
by Adam Sandler
Put on your yamukah
Here comes Hannukah
So much funnukah
To celebrate Hannukah
Hannukah 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 Shorah
Guess who eats together at
the Carnegie Deli?
Bowser from Sha-Na-Na
And Arthur Fonzarelli!
Paul Newman's half Jewish
Goldie Hawn's half, too
Put them together,
What a fine looking Jew!
You don't need Deck the Halls
Or Jingle Bell Rock,
'Cause you can spin a dreidel
With Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock!
Put on your yamukah
It's time for Hannukah
The owner of the Seattle Supersonnicas
O.J. 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 in show biz
Tom Cruise isn't but I heard his agent is
Tell your friend Veronica
It's time to celebrate Hanukkah
I hope I get a harmonica
On this lovely lovely Hanukkah
So drink your gin and tonica
And smoke your marijuanica
If you really really wannika
Have a Happy Happy Happy Happy Hanukkah

I love this song it kicks ass I am in love with Adam Sandlers way to go!!!!!
This is a cute song. Just for the record, Harrison's Ford's mother is 100% Jewish which makes him all Jewish by Jewish law, not 1/4 as it says in the song.
This is a clever anf funny song I loved it. I never thought so many words could rhyme with Hannukah
this song rocks!!!!!
merry christmikah adam sandler goes pretty intense on that shiat
i love this song and adam sandler any one have his email
i have like adam sandler since i was 2 now im 16 and i love hearing this on the local radio stations thanx adam
I love the movie 8 crazy nights my sister and i must be the only ones ever to watch it over here in britain but this song is awesome i love the part 3 bit were that guy comes out ( ithink his name is somethng like bob schreider???) Hannukah kicks christmas' ass
very creative thanks ADAM!
I too love this song, its one of my all time fav Hanukah songs. I can so relate to the lyrics too, people still have no clue what the heck Hanukah is as the Jewish Commmunity is invisible here in New Zealand. Adam Sandler makes being Jewish so cool, thanks man you're great, Happy Hanukah and we love you in NZ.
In part 3 the guy who comes out is Rob Schneider. Him and Adam are good friends.
Great song Adam! You are so talented as a musician, comedian, and an actor. I love all of your work, and I only wish I owned more of all of your works. It would be a great honor and pleasure to be able to meet you.
Hi Adam. I love your song. I wanted to know if you could come to my Bar Mitzvah and sing this song. It is Nov. 22/08 in PA.
Adam, nice song from the wedding singer!
nice song Adam it rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This song is better than christmas songs
I might convert
I loved watching you on Saturday Night Live. Your Chanukah song is great. With your song you gave me a renewed lift of Chanukah during a time where Christmas rules. Thanks.
