Y-Studs - Evolution of Jewish Music

Another Chanukah song, this time presented by the a capella group Y-Studs:

Lyrics:

We will, we will, rock you
We will, we will, rock you
Tonight, I’m gonna have myself, a real good time
I feel alive
And the world can turn it inside out (yeah)

And spin it around, in harmony, so
Don’t stop me now, don’t stop me…
Cuz I’m having a good time, having a good time…

Ohh it's Hanukkah,
We'll celebrate tonight,
Light the candles, surrounded by friends and my family,
Everybody's getting hungry when I am flipping a latke,
I'm gonna go, go, go,
Yeah, we’re gonna feast,

The festival of lights, yeah
Two hundred degrees, that's why they call me Mr. Fahrenheit,
Cookin golden brown they look just right,
I wanna spend this eight-day holiday with my crew,
(Don’t stop me now) I'm having such a good time;
I’m having a ball (Don’t stop me now)
If you wanna have a good time, just give me a call
(Don’t stop me now) 'Cuz I'm having a good time
(Don’t stop me now) Yes, I'm havin' a good time,
I don’t want to stop at all…

I’m a Maccabee, yeah
I’m gonna fight until we stand as one,
I am an Israelite, from body to soul,
Let’s celebrate with gifts for everyone, such a miracle,

I love it oh, oh, oh, neis gadol haya sham [a great miracle happened there]
The festival of lights, yeah
Two hundred degrees, that's why we gotta keep ‘em burning bright,
They lasted through the eight long nights,
I wanna spend this super Hanukkah with my crew

Don’t stop me, don’t stop me, don’t stop me (hey, hey, hey!)
Don’t stop me, don’t stop me, ooh, ooh, ooh (I like it!)
Don’t stop me, don’t stop me (have a good time, good time)
Don’t stop me, don’t stop me, ahh

And we need to go on, and on, and on, and on…
We are the champions, my friends,
And we’ll keep on fighting, ‘til the end,
We are the champions; we are the champions,
No time for losers, ‘cuz we are the champions,
Of the world.
