(I'm Spending) Hannukah In Santa Monica

This song is by Tom Lehrer and appears on the 3 disc box-set The Remains of Tom Lehrer (2000).

I'm spending Hannukah
In Santa Monica
Wearing sandals, lighting candles by the sea
I spent Shavuos
In East Saint Louis
A charming spot but clearly not the spot for me ...

Those eastern winters, I can't endure 'em
So every year I pack my gear and come out here till Purim

Rosh Hashona
I spend in Arizona
And Yom Kippah
Way down in Mississippah

But in December there's just one place for me
Mid the California flora
I'll be lighting my menorah
Like a baby in its cradle
I'll be playing with my draydel
Here's to Judas Maccabeus
Boy if he could only see us

Spending Hannukah
In Santa Monica
By the Sea!
