Chanukah, O Chanukah (A Parody)

(Sung to the tune of Chanukah, O Chanukah)

Chanukah, O Chanukah, come light the fedora!
Let’s have some lipids and then have some more-ah.
Gather ’round the fry pan, it smells really sweet.
Shiny bits of oil, leap out at your feet.
But why do
our dreidels
appear to be standing on point?
One then another,
like Zayde and her brother,
come whirling on their own across the joint.
One then another
like Zayde and her brother,
come whirling on their own across the joint.

Chanukah, O Chanukah, it’s not in the Torah.
We all get together with stuff from the store-ah.
Don’t forget the dreidels, they’re small and compact.
If you dis the dreidels, they’re bound to attack.
But if you
can live through
the melee they’ll wreak to and fro,
sweep them up like tsochkes
and grab a plate of latkes
and doze off in the dwindling candles’ glow.
Sweep them up like tsochkes
and grab a plate of latkes
and doze off in the dwindling candles’ glow.
