"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!

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

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
