LYRICS


[Verse 1] I always cooked a turkey in Novem[ber],
I lit my eight menorah candles in December.
But now my schedule’s a mess Because Hanukkah’s tied to Thanksgiving.

[Chorus] Now everyone’s like Pilgrims, Indians, readers of the torah
Puritans, Wampanoag, dancers of the hora
We don’t care, we’re celebrating Thanksgivukkah.

And now the menus like stuffing, cranberry, turkey leg or brisket,
Manischewitz, pumpkin pie, holidays are mixing.
We don’t care, we’ll throw our dreidels in the air.

And we’ll always have oil (oil)
For frying our latkes.
It’s just about a month early
To honor Judah Maccabee.

It should be in winter (winter)
No more leaves on the ground.
Members of the tribe, the tribe, the tribe, the tribe
All together getting down.

[Verse 2] My friends and I would watch football
We’d wait for Charlie Brown to fly in front of Macy’s.
Instead we’re filling up our gourds, with chocolate coins
it’s a horn of plenty.

[Chorus] Now everyone’s like Pilgrims, Indians, readers of the torah
Puritans, Wampanoag, dancers of the hora
We don’t care, we’re celebrating Thanksgivukkah.

And now the menus like stuffing, cranberry, turkey leg or brisket,
Manischewitz, pumpkin pie, holidays are mixing.
We don’t care, we’ll throw our dreidels in the air.

And we’ll always have oil (oil)
For frying our latkes.
It’s just about a month early
To honor Judah Maccabee.

It should be in winter (winter)
No more leaves on the ground.
Members of the tribe, the tribe, the tribe, the tribe
All together getting down.

[Verse 3] Ooh ooh oh,
Thanksgiving plus Hanukkah
This is just meshugenah.
Ooh ooh oh,
Historically inaccurate
but we don’t really give a sh*t.

[Chorus] And we’ll always have oil (oil)
For frying our latkes.
It’s just about a month early
To honor Judah Maccabee.

It should be in winter (winter)
No more leaves on the ground.
Members of the tribe, the tribe, the tribe, the tribe
All together getting down.
