Adam Sandler Updates ‘The Chanukah Song’ Lyrics
Adam Sandler delivered an updated version of “The Chanukah Song” at the Judd Apatow & Friends event at the New York Comedy Festival over the weekend.
‘The Chanukah Song’ Update
Up on the stage at Carnegie Hall Saturday, Sandler dove into his fourth version of “The Chanukah Song.” Though videos of Sandler’s performance have been stripped from the Internet, the lyrics of the song were obtained by Vulture.
Put on your yarmulke, here comes Chanukah
It’s so much fun-akkah to celebrate Chanukah
Chanukkah 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 the fourth list of people who are Jewish, just like Jesus, Olaf, Punky Brewster, Judd Apatow, Scott Rudin, and me!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt enjoys eating kugel
So does Stan Lee, Jake Gylleenhaal, and the two guys who founded Google
Adam Levine wears a Jewish star
So does Drake and Seth Rogen
Goldberg has a gold yarmulke to match the belt he wore from Hulk Hogan
We got Scarlett Johansson, talk about a cultured crush
And if you need a hotter voice to turn you on, how about getting it from Lost?
We may not have a cartoon of a reindeer that can talk
But we also don’t have polio, thanks to Dr. Jonas Salk
Put on your yarmulke, it’s time for Chanukah
Harry Potter and his magic wandi-kah, celebrate Chanukah
Jared from Subway: F–k, a Jew
But guess who’s Jewish and can fix him? Loveline’s Dr. Drew
Princess Leia cuts the halva with Elsa from Frozen
David Beckham is the king of soccer studs and also a quarter chosen
Ron Jeremy is fully Jewish and so is his foot-long buddy
Shia LaBeouf is half a Jew but 100 percent nutty
It’s who but Santa Claus who makes Christmas so merry
But we get two jolly fat guys: ice cream’s Ben & Jerry’s
Come on all to Chanukah, get up and celebrate Chanukah
Don’t mess with us, oh Chanukah, let’s all get along for Chanukah
So drink your Jaegerbomb-ikkah and smoke your medical-marijuan-ikkah
If you really, really wanna-kah, have a happy, happy, happy, happy Chanukah
Sandler was at the New York Comedy Festival event to support his longtime pal Judd Apatow during his stand-up set.
Sandler debuted “The Chanukah Song” when he was a Saturday Night Live cast member back in December of 1994. He first revised the lyrics in 1999, and updated it a second time in 2002. It’s been over a decade since the comedian and actor has added Jewish celebrities to his catchy holiday song.
