For the fourth time since its Saturday Night Live debut in 1994, Adam Sandler has rewritten his "Chanukah Song." The latest rendition was performed live at Judd Apatow's show at Carnegie Hall over the weekend, and features mentions of Shia LaBeouf, Jared from Subway, and Adam Levine.
For comparison, and to really feel old, the original included David Lee Roth, Goldie Hawn, O.J. Simpson, and Spock; the 1999 revision had Winona Ryder, Mike D, and Courtney Love; the 2002 version included Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller, and Natalie Portman. Here's the latest:
Put on your yarmulke, here comes Chanukah It’s so much fun-akkah to celebrate Chanukah
Chanukkah 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 the fourth list of people who are Jewish, just like Jesus, Olaf, Punky Brewster, Judd Apatow, Scott Rudin, and me!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt enjoys eating kugel
So does Stan Lee, Jake Gylleenhaal, and the two guys who founded Google
Adam Levine wears a Jewish star
So does Drake and Seth Rogen
Goldberg has a gold yarmulke to match the belt he wore from Hulk Hogan
We got Scarlett Johansson, talk about a cultured crush
And if you need a hotter voice to turn you on, how about getting it from Lost?
We may not have a cartoon of a reindeer that can talk
But we also don’t have polio, thanks to Dr. Jonas Salk
Put on your yarmulke, it’s time for Chanukah
Harry Potter and his magic wandi-kah, celebrate Chanukah
Jared from Subway: Fuck, a Jew
But guess who’s Jewish and can fix him? Loveline’s Dr. Drew
Princess Leia cuts the halva with Elsa from Frozen
David Beckham is the king of soccer studs and also a quarter chosen
Ron Jeremy is fully Jewish and so is his foot-long buddy
Shia LaBeouf is half a Jew but 100 percent nutty
It’s who but Santa Claus who makes Christmas so merry
But we get two jolly fat guys: ice cream’s Ben & Jerry’s
Come on all to Chanukah, get up and celebrate Chanukah
Don’t mess with us, oh Chanukah, let’s all get along for Chanukah
So drink your Jaegerbomb-ikkah and smoke your medical-marijuan-ikkah
If you really, really wanna-kah, have a happy, happy, happy, happy Chanukah
