Thinking about Chanukah

and smiling....(lyrics are below the video)



Hanukkah Hey Ya!
By Eric Schwartz (smooth-e)

My dreidel just spins around
and then falls to the ground
as we light the candles (oy!)

I love to light menorahs
and the matzah balls are cooking on the stove (mmm!)

Flames high to light the ceiling
but the candle dripping's burning me right now (ow!)

Thank god for mom and dad
for teaching jewish culture
'cause we are so proud (l'chaim)

[chorus]
Hanukkah
Hanukkah
Hanukkah
Hanukkah

Those fluffy latkes,
oh those fluffy latkes
they're hot i want to eat 'em 'till there's nothing at all

We get the presents, oh we get the presents
and eight is always better than three from santa claus

And what they say is "we're the chosen people"
then what makes, what makes, what makes, what makes
us the exception?

Don't know why, know why
o-y, o-y, o-y (oy!)
Run and call your rabbi so that you can celebrate this year
oy is just yo backwards

[chorus]
Hanukkah (why don't you meet my rabbi)
Hanukkah (he isn't such a bad guy)
Hanukkah (it wouldn't be a bummer)
Hanukkah (if you want to wear yarmulke)

Manischewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz and a kosherized pickle
Maniscewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz, shevitz and potato knishes
Maniscewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz and the kasha varnishkas
Maniscewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz, schewitz, suburbanhomeboy.com...challah
