Subject: Hanukkah song by Adam Sandler
From: katlaughing
Date: 22 Dec 00 - 12:27 PM

To all of you who begin your C/Hanukkah celebrations, today, Happy days to you and here's a funny song I found on the 'Net. The actor Adam Sandler's name is at the bottom, so I am assuming he's the one who wrote it. No offense intended and I KNOW we've got better songs and we do not need to measure ourselves by who's who in Hollywood, just thought it was a bit of levity. I notice he forgot to mention my one of my favourite actors, Fyvush Finkel.

Spin dreidl, spin! luvyakat

Intro: This is a song, that uh, theres alot of Xmas songs out there, but not too many about Hanukkah, so I wrote a song for all those nice little Jewish kids who dont get to hear any Hanukkah songs--here we go...

[A] Put on your [E] yalmulka, [D] here comes [E] Hanukkah
Its [A] so much [E] fun-akkah to [D] celebrate [E]Hanukkah,

[A]Hanukkah [E]is the [D] Festival of [E] Lights,
[A] Instead of one day of [E] presents, we have [Bm] eight [D] crazy [E] nights.

[A] When you feel like the only [E] kid in town with[D]out a Xmas [E]tree,
[A] Heres a list of [E] people who are Jewish, [D] just like you and [E] me:

[A] David Lee [E] Roth [D] lights the me[E]norrah,
[A] So do James [E] Caan, Kirk Douglas, and the [D] late Dinah [E]Shore-ah

[A] Guess who eats to[E]gether at the [D] Karnickey [E] Deli,
[A] Bowzer from [E] Sha-na-na, and [D] Arthur Fonzer[E]relli.

[A] Paul Newmans half [E] Jewish; [D] Goldie Hawns half [E] too,
[A] Put them to[E]gether--what a [D] fine lookin [E] Jew! [Esus] [E]

[D] You dont need Deck the Halls or Jingle Bell Rock
[E] Cause you can spin the dreidl with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock--both Jewish! [Esus]

[A] Put on your [E] yalmulka, its [D] time for [E] Hanukkah,
The [A] owner of the Seattle Super[E]sonic-ahs [D] celebrates [E] Hanukkah.

[A] O.J. [E] Simpson--[D] not a [E] Jew!
But [A] guess who [E]is...Hall of [D] Famer--Rod [E]Carew--(he converted!) [Bm]

[A] We got Ann [E] Landers and her [D] sister Dear Ab[E]by,
[A] Harrison Fords a [E] quarter Jewish--[D] not too [E] shabby!

[A] Some people [E] think that [D] Ebeneezer [E] Scrooge is,
Well, hes [A] not, but [E] guess who is: [D] All three [E] stooges. [Esus] [E]

[D] So many Jews are in show biz--
[E] Tom Cruise isn¹t, [tacit] but I heard his agent is. [Esus]

[A] Tell your friend Ver[E]onica, its [D] time you celebrate [E] Hanukkah
I [A] hope I get a har[E]monica, on this [D] lovely, lovely [E] Hanukkah.

So [A] drink your gin-and-[E]tonic-ah, and [D]smoke your mara[E]juanic-ah,
If you [A] really, really [E]wanna-kah, Have a [D] happy, happy, [E] happy, happy [A] Hanukkah.

Subject: ADD: Eight Candles (Malvina Reynolds)
From: Stewart
Date: 22 Dec 00 - 03:01 PM

Here's another Hanukkah song by Malvina Reynolds

EIGHT CANDLES  — Malvina Reynolds

(chorus before each verse)
Eight candles shine for the Maccabees.   Dm A7 DmA7Dm
Eight candles shine for the Maccabees.   Dm A7 DmA7Dm

Down from the mountains with Liberty's sword,   F C7 F A7
They came like the flame of the Lord.          Dm C7 A

The tyrant was routed with all of his men,
And the temple made holy again.

Hanukah's children will never forget
The glory that shines for us yet.

(chorus after each verse)
Dance the horah, light the menorah, F   Gm
This is the time of joy,   C   F
The road to freedom we take today,  D7 Gm Dm
With the Maccabees leading the way. A7    Dm

Happy Hanukkah! S. in Seattle

The chorus at my retirement community does a holiday concert and includes one Hanukkah song. The director finally found one that is actually good - the melody is right and it tells the story. I copied it and set it up for the ukulele group (I'm in both and run the ukulele group). I doubt that that the chords will paste in properly, but here it is:

Hanukkah Holiday                                                                                                                261

Dm                                         Gm                 A7
Hanukkah holiday festival of lights
Dm        Am7 A7           Dm                A7                        Dm
Lights are burning on a winter’s night
Gm                                                Dm
Clap your hands and join the singing
A7                                Dm
Let the fun begin
Gm                                Dm
Spin the dreidel, tell the story
Gm                                A7
Hanukkah is here.

Dm                                                                                                                 A7
Very long ago, the people of Judea fought for life and liberty
Dm                                                                                                                                                        A7                                Dm
Lighting the menorah, singing psalms of praise they thanked God for the victory
A                 A7                Dm                                Gm                                        A
And today we still remember how the lights did shine
Dm                                                                                                                A7                                                Dm
Miracle of love and miracle of hope we celebrate with songs of joy

Dm                                        Gm                        A7         Dm        Am7        A7                Dm                A7                Dm
Hanukkah holiday festival of lights lights are burning on a winter’s night
Gm                                                Dm                                A7                                Dm
Clap your hands and join the singing let the fun begin
Gm                                        Dm                        Gm                                A7        Dm
Spin the dreidel, tell the story. Hanukkah is here.
