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
And 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! [both Jewish]

Put on your yamukah
It's time for hannukah
The owner of the seattle supersonica
Celebrates Hannukah

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 show biz
Tom Cruise isn't, but I heard his agent is!
Tell your friend Veronica
It's time to celebrate Hannukah
I hope I get a harmonica
On this lovely, lovely Hannukah
So drink your Gin and tonica
And smoke your marijuanica
If you really, really wannaca
Have a happy happy, happy happy Hannukah

Happy Hannukah!
