To the tune of Girl on Fire.
It’s not just light it’s not just fire
much more than fantasy, weighs more than history
We’re living in a world, and it’s on fire
heading to catastrophe, and we know we can’t fly away

Oohhhh
Judith, both feet on the ground
You’re bringing elephants down
Ohhhhh
Soul get your head out of the clouds
There’s just no backing down

This world is on fire
This world is on fire
Moloch’s walking through fire
This world is on fire

Looks completely dark but there’s a flame
So bright, it can warm your soul
Faster than a summer’s day
You can try but you’ll never say Her Name
Wisdom of the world
above all the valorous girls say

Oh, we draw our strength from the Ground
And we’re not backing down
Oh, got our souls in the clouds
And we’re calling fire down

This world is on fire
This world is on fire
We’re standing up to the fire
This world is on fire

Everybody stares, as they walk by
Cause they can see the flames for all 8 nights
wondering how these speak truth against might
Nobody knows that it’s a lonely task
To respond when the world asks
But she can’t let it burn babies, burn, babies

This world is on fire
But this girl also is fire
She’s fighting the fire
Fighting fire with fire

Oh, oh, oh..
It’s not just light it’s not just fire…

We found oil (in a hopeless place) (To the Tune of We found Hope)

[Narration:]
It’s like you’re screaming, and no one can hear
You almost feel ashamed
That something could be that important
That without it, you feel like nothing

No one will ever understand how much it hurts
You felt hopeless; And then God helps save you
And then it’s over, and the Greek’s are gone
You almost wish that you could use all that bad oil they left
Because you can’t find any that’s still good…

[Song begins]
Golden menorah we were forbidden to light
Now we’re standing by your side
As your shadow crosses mine
I’ve no oil to bring you alive

It’s a neis I’m needing I just can’t deny
But I’ve gotta let it go

We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place

[interlude]

Shine a light through the Temple door
No love of fights I will confide
I’m a Maccabee but I hated war
Oil defiled like the thoughts of my mind

It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny
But we’ve got a way to go

We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place

[interlude 2]

Pure oil enough to light
Cut through the darkness of just tonight
and the shadow upon my mind

The miracle that we’re still alive
Like that oil that wouldn’t be denied
And we’ve got a way to glow

We found oil in a hopeless place
Chanuka we celebrate the neis
We found oil in a hopeless place
There’s hope for this human race….

We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place
Light Tonight by Chanu Kae (my favorite for 5772)
It’s been a really really awesome week
Eight nights of latkes, eight nights of lighting
And my best friends were hanging with me
It’s prime Jewish time, huh there are other holidays in winter?

Cha nu kah, forever, cha nu kah, let’s light together, cha nu kah, oh yeh, cha nu kah!

We’re gonna light it tonight tonight
There’s a menorah on the rooftop top of the world
Tonight tonight and we’re spinning dreidel on Jerusalem stone
I don’t know if I’ll win it but watch how good I’ll spin it
Left to right, all light, tonight, tonight

I woke up with a confectionary
Not sure how I got it, just chocolate coin in my pocket
And it kinda looks just like you
Mixed with images from the arch of titus

Cha nu kah, forever, cha nu kah, let’s light together, cha nu kah, oh yeh, cha nu kah!

We’re gonna light it tonight tonight
There’s a menorah on the rooftop top of the world
Tonight tonight and we’re spinning dreidel on Jerusalem stone
I don’t know if I’ll win it but watch how good I’ll spin it
Left to right, all light, tonight, tonight

It’s got me singing like
Woah, sivivon, ohh,let’s spin together, woah, everybody now, ohh

Just don’t stop let’s keep dreidel spinnin’
Keep the gimmel up, let’s drop the nun down
It’s my party spin if I want to
We can get dizzy let it all out

Just don’t stop let’s keep dreidel spinnin’
Keep the gimmel up, let’s drop the nun down
It’s my party spin if I want to
We can get dizzy let it all out

I’m Judah Maccabee and we’re runnin this town
And it’s me and you and we’re dedicating the ground
And ain’t Yavan gonna tell us to go cause this is our show

Everybody
Woah, come on, ohh, all you Maccabees
Woah, let me hear you now, ohh

tonight tonight – There’s a menorah on the rooftop top of the world
Tonight tonight and we’re spinning dreidel on Jerusalem stone
I don’t know if I’ll win it but watch how good I’ll spin it
Left to right, all light, tonight, tonight

Left to right, all light, tonight, tonight
Light it bright, all right, tonight, tonight

Just singing like
Woah, come on, ohh, all you Maccabees
Woah, all you Yehudim, ohh (even the goyim)

Just don’t stop let’s keep dreidel spinnin’
Keep the gimmel up, let’s drop the nun down
It’s my party spin if I want to
We can get dizzy let it all out

Just don’t stop let’s keep dreidel spinnin’
Keep the gimmel up, let’s drop the nun down
It’s my party spin if I want to
We can get dizzy let it all out

It’s….

To the Tune of Colbie Caillat’s – Brighter than the Sun
Saw a menorah in the window
Its message hit me like a mission
I, I, I wasn’t expecting
But who am I to tell God when my soul’s supposed to be lit?

Don’t you blink, you might miss it
See we got a job to just light it and speak it
It finds you and keeps you
‘Cause it ain’t every week you get the chance to say

Oh, this is how it starts,
a small flame strikes the dark,
adding 1 by 1,
we’re brighter than the sun

Oh, we’re numbered like the stars
Sparkling like the sand
Descending from Avraham,
brighter than the sun

If you never seen it, feel this warm love
And you’re gonna need it
You better believe I’m gonna spread it
Further than anything I’ve ever said ‘Cause it’s so damn beautiful

Read it, Josephus signed and in apocrypha, they sealed it
Boy, we go together like latkes and dreidels, fried donuts and jelly

And everybody needs to get a chance to say

Oh, this is how it starts,
a small flame strikes the dark,
adding 1 by 1,
we’re brighter than the sun

Oh, we’re numbered like the stars
Sparkling like the sand
Descending from Avraham,
brighter than the sun

Everything is over-bright out
’cause their hook-a-lights- shine down,
but even when their, when their lights are out
Neir I can see you glow,

God’s my shine up in the rafters,
got me happy ever after
Never felt this way before,
ain’t felt this way before

Saw a menorah in the window
Its message hit me like a mission
I, I, I wasn’t expecting
But who am I to tell God when my soul’s supposed to be lit?

Oh, this is how it starts,
a small flame strikes the dark,
adding 1 by 1,
we’re brighter than the sun

Oh, we’re numbered like the stars
Sparkling like the sand
Descending from Avraham,
brighter than the sun
Oh, this is how it starts,
a small flame strikes the dark,
adding 1 by 1,
we’re brighter than the sun

Oh, we’re numbered like the stars
Sparkling like the sand
Descending from Avraham,
brighter than the sun
Brighter than the sun
Brighter than the sun
Happy Chanuah Everyoneeeee.
