Hannukah in Santa Monica

  1. I will really be celebrating with my sons in laws near Santa Monica!
    We see her parents pretty often. We complain that they don't call or write often enough.

    Hannukah in Santa Monica

    I'm spending Hannukah in Santa Monica
    Wearing sandals, 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 Hashanah I spend in Arizona
    And Yom Kippah way down in Mississippah
    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 dreidel
    Spending Hannukah, in Santa Monica, By the Sea!

    Here's to Judas Maccabeus,
    Boy if he could only see us
    Spending Hannukah, in Santa Monica, By the Sea!
