You say you wanna throw a Christmas Party
Nobody blinks an eye
I say I wanna throw a Chanukah Party
You turn around and ask me why
It’s not a religious thing
Cuz I’m a secular Jew
I just wanna have a party
with music and food and you, and you, and YOU

I think you wanna come
I think we better go
Won’t you let me take you to a
Come on, let’s go

We got Matzoh balls and wontons
Got a couple standup comedians
Dance music pumping from the 2s and 1s
We’re only here just to have fun

There’s a girl in the corner
Maybe my mom would like her
I should invite her for dinner
Wait! We’re already here
You might be neurotic
Hey, that’s just like me
Well come out to my party
and we’ll let go of our fears

I think we better go
Meet you at the meet you at the
I think you wanna come
Come on, let’s go

Come on, let’s go
I wanna take you to
I met her at the met her at the
Won’t you let me take you to a
