Adar Songs – Hanukkah in Santa Monica.

TOM LEHRER
One of the greatest funny Jewish songwriters of all time!
His little known “Hanukkah in Santa Monica.”
Check out his other more controversial songs.

I’m spending Hanukkah, in Santa Monica,
Wearing sandals lighting candles by the sea.
I spent Shavuos, in East St. Louis,
A charming spot but clearly not the spot for me.
Those eastern winters, I can’t endure ’em,
So every year I pack my gear
And come out here to Purim.
Rosh Hashona, I spend in Arizona,
And Yom Kippa, way down in Mississippa.
But in December, there’s just one place for me.
Amid the California flora, I’ll be lighting my menorah.
Like a baby in his cradle, I’ll be playing with my dreidl.

Here’s to Judas Macabeus, boy if he could only see us,
Santa Monica, spending Hanukkah by the sea.
