Presented for your amusement, Adam Sandler's original "Hanukkah Song".

The Hanukkah Song Lyrics – Part I (Original 1994 Version)

Intro: There's a lot of Christmas songs out there, but not too many about Hanukkah, so I wrote a song for all those nice little Jewish kids who don't get to hear any Hanukkah songs.
Here we go…
Put on your yarmulka, it's time for Hanukkah
Its so much fun-akkah to celebrate Hanukkah,
Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights,
Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights.
But when you're 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 Shore-ah
Guess who eats together at the Carnegie Deli,
Bowzer from Sha-na-na, and Arthur Fonzerrelli.
Paul Newman's half Jewish; Goldie Hawn's half too,
Put them together--what a fine lookin’ Jew!
You don’t need Deck the Halls or Jingle Bell Rock
Cause you can spin a driedel with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock - both Jewish!
Put on your yalmulka, its time for Hanukkah,
The owner of the Seattle Super sonic-ah celebrates Hanukkah.
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 Ebeneezer 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, its time to celebrate Hanukkah
I hope I get a harmonica, on this lovely, lovely Hanukkah.
So drink your gin-and-tonic-ah, and smoke your mara-juanic-ah,
If you really, really wanna-kah, Have a happy, happy, happy, happy
