about

Our first ever original Hanukkah song 🕎

lyrics

This time last year I was feeling blue
Lost in a flurry of red and green
Feeling out of place and a little unseen
This season used to hit me so differently

Hearing “Merry Christmas” when I walk into the bank
Feeling like a fraud when I just say “thanks”
“Happy Chanukah” doesn’t roll off the tongue the same way
This time last year I couldn’t get in the mood
But now there’s one thing that I’m sure of

This year I’m buying presents, I’m making latkes
I’m hanging decorations, dusting off the chachkes
I’m leaning in this winter, going hard for 8 whole days
Take me for a spin because this Chanukah I’m gimel all the way

This time last year I was so confused
I was blinded by my holiday jealousy
Now I’m feeling fit to get lit like a Maccabee
Damn right I am finally back in the mood
Because there’s one thing that I’m sure of

This year I’m buying presents, I’m making latkes
I’m hanging decorations, dusting off the chachkes
I’m leaning in this winter, going hard for 8 whole days
Take me for a spin because this Chanukah I’m gimel all the way
All the way

I won’t be kvetching in the corner by myself
This year I’m taking my menorah off the shelf
I won’t feel silly singing that Adam Sandler song
Instead I’ll get the whole mishpacha to sing along
Instead I’ll get the whole mishpacha to sing along

This year I’m buying presents, I’m making latkes
I’m hanging decorations, dusting off the chachkas
I’m leaning in this winter, going hard for 8 whole days
Take me for a spin because this Chanukah I’m gimel
I’m making jelly doughnuts and my bubby’s brisket
I haven’t been this fired up since my bar/bat mitzvah
You’ll find me by the dreidels, cleaning up the gelt all day
Take me for a spin because this Chanukah I’m gimel all the way
Take me for a spin because this Chanukah I’m gimel all the way
