Sunny figured this out - I just played the giant goy. 

G Fdim Am D7Jon: Can I interest you in Hannukah?
G Fdim C D7Maybe something in a Festival of Lights
C D7 G E7It's a sensible alternative to Christmas
Am D7And it lasts for seven - for you - eight nights.
n/CStephen: Hanukkah huh? I've never really thought about it.
n/CJon: Well, you could do worse.
G FdimStephen: Is it merry?
Am D7Jon: It's kind of merry
G FdimStephen: Is it cheery?
C D7Jon: It's got some cheer
CStephen: Is it jolly?
D7 G E7Jon: Look, I wouldn't know from jolly.
C D7 G G7But it's not my least unfavourite time of year.
CStephen: When's it start?
D7Jon: The 25th
GStephen: Of December?
E7Jon: Kislev
C D7Stephen: When is when exactly?
G E7Jon: I will check
CStephen: Are there presents?
D7 G E7Jon: Yes, indeed 8 days of presents
C D7Which 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
Gto save the world?
Am D7Jon: No, oil that burned quite slowly
n/CStephen: Well, it sounds fantastic!
n/C GJon: There's more! We have latkes
FdimStephen: What are they?
Am D7 GJon: Potato pancakes. We have dreidels
FdimStephen: What are they?
Am D7 CJon: Wooden tops. We have candles
D7Stephen: What are they?
G E7 C D7 GJon: THEY ARE CANDLES! And when we light them, oh the fun it never stops.
n/CWhat 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 D7But 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 D7Stephen: No thanks I'll pass. I'll keep Jesus, you keep your potato
G E7 Am Gmaj7 Am Gpancakes. But I hope that you enjoy 'em on behalf of all of the goyim.
Am Gmaj7 Am GJon: Be sure to tell the Pontiff, my people say Good Yontif.
Am E7Stephen: That's exactly what I'll do
n/c C D7Both: Happy holidays, you
GJon/Stephen: Too!/Jew!
Jon: Too?
