From "A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All!" Written by David Javerbaum and Adam Schlesinger, sung by Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart. Sunny figured this out - I just played the giant goy. G Fdim Am D7 Jon: Can I interest you in Hannukah? G Fdim C D7 Maybe something in a Festival of Lights C D7 G E7 It's a sensible alternative to Christmas Am D7 And it lasts for seven - for you - eight nights. n/C Stephen: Hanukkah huh? I've never really thought about it. n/C Jon: Well, you could do worse. G Fdim Stephen: Is it merry? Am D7 Jon: It's kind of merry G Fdim Stephen: Is it cheery? C D7 Jon: It's got some cheer C Stephen: Is it jolly? D7 G E7 Jon: Look, I wouldn't know from jolly. C D7 G G7 But it's not my least unfavourite time of year. C Stephen: When's it start? D7 Jon: The 25th G Stephen: Of December? E7 Jon: Kislev C D7 Stephen: When is when exactly? G E7 Jon: I will check C Stephen: Are there presents? D7 G E7 Jon: Yes, indeed 8 days of presents C D7 Which means one nice one, then a week of dreck. C G Am G C Stephen: Does Hanukkah commemorate events profound and holy? A king who came G to save the world? Am D7 Jon: No, oil that burned quite slowly n/C Stephen: Well, it sounds fantastic! n/C G Jon: There's more! We have latkes Fdim Stephen: What are they? Am D7 G Jon: Potato pancakes. We have dreidels Fdim Stephen: What are they? Am D7 C Jon: Wooden tops. We have candles D7 Stephen: What are they? G E7 C D7 G Jon: THEY ARE CANDLES! And when we light them, oh the fun it never stops. n/C What do you say, Stephen, do you want to give Hanukkah a try? C G Am G Stephen: I'm trying see me as a Jew, I'm trying even harder C G Am D7 But I believe in Jesus Christ, so it's a real non-starter G Fdim Am D7 G Fdim Jon: I can't interest you in Hanukkah? Just a little bit? Am D7 C D7 Stephen: No thanks I'll pass. I'll keep Jesus, you keep your potato G E7 Am Gmaj7 Am G pancakes. But I hope that you enjoy 'em on behalf of all of the goyim. Am Gmaj7 Am G Jon: Be sure to tell the Pontiff, my people say Good Yontif. Am E7 Stephen: That's exactly what I'll do n/c C D7 Both: Happy holidays, you G Jon/Stephen: Too!/Jew! Jon: Too?
