PopWatch Quote of the Day: 'Chanukah Song' Edition

Posted on

“Chanukah 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 a list of
people who are Jewish, just like you and me:

David Lee Roth lights the menorah,
So do James Caan, Kirk Douglas, and the late Dinah Shore-ah [or Pauly Shore-ah as Sandler ad libs in the clip below].

Guess who eats together at the Carnegie Deli,
Bowzer from Sha Na Na, and Arthur Fonzarelli.

Paul Newman’s half Jewish; Goldie Hawn’s half too,
Put them together–what a fine lookin’ Jew!” –Adam Sandler, ”Chanukah Song” (Listen to the complete song below)
