About the song
I have written a new rockin', funny, informative holiday song that is a refreshing alternative to (Adam Sandler) the only frequently played Chanukah song on the radio.

There is a major lack of radio friendly (not too religious) pop-rock Chanukah songs being played on the radio in December?

In relation to the number of Jewish people who listen to the radio (or on-line music), this is a severe under representation of this population demographic (6,000,000 people in major US cities).

Please contact your local radio station to request this song. Let's be heard this holdiay season!
Lyrics
What Is Chanukah?
What - is Chanukah, tell me
What - is the festival of lights, tell me
How – only one day of olive oil
Could last and last and last for eight holy nights

What – is a menorah and a shamash, tell me
Why – lighting the candles is a mitzvah, tell me
Why – do we get eight days of presents starting
on day twenty-five in the month of Kislev

On Chanukah – 165 BC
On Chanukah – We crushed their monarchy

Who – is Judah Maccabee, tell me
Why – did he fight the Selucid Greeks, tell me
Why – did Hannah and her seven sons
Refuse to bow down and eat pork – that dirty treyfe

On Chanukah – 165 BC
On Chanukah – We crushed their monarchy
On Chanukah – We beat Antiochus the King
Come on let’s fry them latkes

Oh we recovered the temple
And we cleaned it up real good
Because of Judah the “Hammer”
We could see the Chanukah lights at the end of the tunnel

What - is Chanukah, tell me
What - is the festival of lights, tell me
How – only one day of olive oil
Could last and last and last for eight holy nights

On Chanukah – 165 BC
On Chanukah – We crushed their monarchy
On Chanukah – We beat Antiochus the King
Come on let’s fry them latkes

Oh we recovered the temple
And we cleaned it up real good
Because of Judah the “Hammer”
We could see the Chanukah lights at the end of the tunnel
