  • Originally written for and sung on Garrison Keillor's "The American Radio Company" show in 1990 in order to remedy the lack of Hanukkah songs. (peterpuck9)
  • Song Lyrics:
    I'm spending Hanukkah, in Santa Monica,
    Wearing sandals lighting candles by the sea.
    I spent Shavuos, in East St. 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 to Purim.

    Rosh Hashona, I spend in Arizona,
    And Yom Kippa, way down in Mississippa.
    But in Decemba, there's just one place for me.
    'Mid the California flora,
    I'll be lighting my menorah.
    Every California maid'll
    Find me playing with a dreidl.
    Santa Monica, spending Hanukkah by the sea

    There are two versions of this song. Rather than:
    Every California maid'll
    Find me playing with a dreidl.

    The other version reads:
    Like a baby in his cradle
    I'll be playing with my dreidl.
