"T'was the Seventh night of Chanukah and all through downtown,
Christmas lights were twinkling, there were people all around.
Me and my wife thought "how pretty and bright"
If only Mayor Mufi, had a Menorah alight.
When what to our wondering eyes did we spy?
An assortment of Jews on a Holiday ride!
Twenty or Thirty fine automobiles
all strapped with Menorahs - Chanukah on wheels!
We saw them pass by and there arose such a sound of honking and hooting and joy all around
They sped on their way and we wanted to see so we followed behind them into Waikiki
On Sruly and Shmuki and Shmuel even Itchel, To see all the happiness gave us a tickle!
We gathered together in a park on a corner
Then Governor Linda Lingle lit the Menorah!
Hot latkes and music and songs of the season
suddenly Chanukah in Hawaii seemed to have a reason!
Don't feel so lonesome, come say the Bracha
put some light on your car and have a fine Chanukah!!"
