Track Name: Sophia Cacciola and Michael J. Epstein - Eight More Days of Hanukkah!
"Hi Sophia."
"Hi Michael."
"I sure wish every holiday were Hanukkah."
"Let's make it happen!"

When the groundhog sees its shadow, 8 more days of Hanukkah.
When cupid fires his arrow, 8 more days of Hanukkah
When the Easter bunny finds an egg, 8 more days of Hanukkah.
Remember when Martin Luther King said, "8 more days of Hanukkah."


We celebrate it every night.
An endless festival of lights.

Columbus sailed the ocean blue, 8 more days of Hanukkah.
George Washington always told the truth, 8 more days of Hanukkah.
The Pilgrims landed on Plymouth rock, 8 more days of Hanukkah.
The Declaration was signed by John Hancock, 8 more days of Hanukkah.

We celebrate it every night.
An endless festival of lights.
Spin your dreidels, give some gelt.
Raise your Shamash high and shout...

Betsy Ross sewed the 13 stripes, 8 more days of Hanukkah.
Soldier’s fought to protect our rights, 8 more days of Hanukkah.
St. Patrick drove out the last snake, 8 more days of Hanukkah.
Jesus eats his birthday cake, 8 more days of Hanukkah.

We celebrate it every night.
An endless festival of lights.
Spin your dreidels, give some gelt.
Raise your Shamash high and shout
Hanukkah!

Light another candle, 8 more days of Hanukkah.
This menorah’s getting hard to handle, 8 more days of Hanukkah.
Mother's, father's, new year's too, 8 more days of Hanukkah.
You don’t even have to be a Jew for 8 more days of Hanukkah.

We celebrate it every night.
An endless festival of lights.
Spin your dreidels, give some gelt.
Raise your Shamash high and shout
Hanukkah!
Track Name: Friends of Fred (Rachel Leah Blumenthal, Sophia Cacciola, Joel Edinberg, and Michael J. Epstein) - Ode to the Somerville Turkey (Fred's Song)
Fred, Fred, the Somerville Turkey
Just flew in from Albuquerque
Feelin’ fresh and oh so perky
Gobblin’ round our town

Walking down Porter Street
Flapping those wings, tapping those feet
Looking much too cute to eat
Whistlin’ a happy tune

Eating some Fluff to stay real strong
Atop Spring Hill Fred sings a song
The neighborhood dogs like to bark along
With their new turkey friend

Fred, Fred, the Somerville Turkey
Just flew in from Albuquerque
Feelin’ fresh and oh so perky
Gobblin’ round our town

All Fred’s cousins live in Brookline
Fred’s in Somerville having a great time
Going to Honk! Fest, playing in a drum line
Fred supports the arts

Fred, Fred, the Somerville Turkey
Just flew in from Albuquerque
Feelin’ fresh and oh so perky
Gobblin’ round our town

Going to a movie at the Somerville Theatre
Putting a quarter in your expired meter
Helping old ladies cross the street
First in line to volunteer for ArtBeat
Fred goes local to spend his cash
Fred does the mash...the Monster Mash

Fred, Fred, the Somerville Turkey
Just flew in from Albuquerque
Feelin’ fresh and oh so perky
Gobblin’ round our town

Fred, Fred, the Somerville Turkey
Please don’t make Fred into jerky
Keep Fred happy, keep Fred perky
Somerville is Fred’s home

Fred, Fred, the Somerville Turkey
Fred’s real fun, Fred’s real quirky
Don’t go back to Albuquerque
Somerville is your home
Track Name: Michael J. Epstein - July 4, 1976 (Disco Independence)
Way back when in 76, when disco ruled the night
The Declaration of Independence gave unalienable rights
Yeah unalienable rights

That all men may have a mustache
Women may have one too
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of facial hair
...and mirror balls and dancing too
Yeah and mirror balls and dancing too

Old King George was angry
He hated that new disco sound
So he sent over some redcoats
To tear that dance hall down
Yeah, tear that dance hall down

John Hancock did the hustle
Sam Adams the electric slide
Thomas Jefferson at the Bus Stop
...and King he nearly died
Yeah the king he nearly died

So now Fireworks fill the sky up
Everyone has a barbecue
The children get the day off from school
The roof’s on fire too
...but we don’t need no water dude
