Seasoned Greetings to the Mudcat Community of Warblers, Musicologists, Old Folkies, Cyber-songsters and such. Please enjoy this Seasonal Song (reprised for 2007 with the right number of Festival Lights!) - a joyful noise guaranteed to amuse some, offend some, and typically, be ignored by many.

Since the Xmas parody thread has such a following, I thought I'd start a parallel conversation (just to get some notice)!

Cheers & Joy to the Mudcat Community....

CHANNUKAH, OH CHANNUKAH
-----------------------
(tune of O Tannenbaum)

CHORUS -
O Channukah, O Channukah
How lovely are thy brunches

Pass the bagels, pass the lox
Open up, the gift-wrapped box

O Channukah, O Channukah
How lovely are thy brunches

Spin the dredle, win some gelt
Eat the chocolate before it melts
CHORUS

Have some latkes and applesauce
Save a plate for Santa Claus
CHORUS

A Celebration - eight long nights
Menorrah candles, burning bright
CHORUS

Remember all those Macabees
Who refused to bend their knees
CHORUS

Fill the house with Chaverim
Songs and laughter echoing
CHORUS

Kids drink lots of Martinellis
Apple cider fills their bellys
CHORUS

Sing a song for dear old Mom
Here's to CAROL TANNENBAUM

Oh Channukah, Oh Channukah
How lovely are thy brunches!

(repeat until full)

PS - 'Thy despots heel is on thy shore....
