Hannukah in Santa Monica
by Tom Lehrer 1990
I'm spending Hannukah in Santa Monica
Wearing Sandles, lighting candles by the sea
I spent Shavuos in East Saint 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 til Purim
Rosh Hashona I spend in Arizona
And Yom Kippah way down in Mississippah
But in December there's just one place for me
Mid the California flora I'll be lighting my menorah
Like a baby in its cradle I'll be playing with my draydel
Here's to Judas Maccabeus, Boy if he could only see us
Spending Hannukah, in Santa Monica, By the Sea!
