  • Song Lyrics:
    ("Dr. Katz":)
    Honey, put down the dreidel and listen..listen to your father for a second because these stories need to survive if..if the traditions are gonna survive and the religion is gonna survive. Y'know, my father told me- and I resent this- that we light the eight Hanukkah candles to acknowledge the suffering of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Now I know this is not true, but, uh, that's why, I,I,I think it's important that..that you understand about this holiday and I want to tell you all I know; it's not a lot, but, and this is just hearsay...

    (The Bobs in the background go: 'jinga jinga jinga jinga jing' and 'bop diddly do' and other 'scatting' thereafter)

    He comes down the chimney
    in a sharkskin suit; this is the way the story goes
    And under the tree
    he's leaving lots of loot
    Your name's on the tag
    Santa's got a brand new bag; now this is the confusing part

    He's making a list
    and he's..he's checking it twice
    because, y'see he's..he's thorough by nature
    and that's really Santa's only vice
    He ain't no drag
    Santa's got a brand new bag

    Now bear in mind this is a grown man...

    He's filling stockings with shiny toys
    He's got the right things for all the girls and boys
    I don't know how he does it
    Laying a finger upside his nose and this is where he loses me
    Up the chimney he goes

    Christmas morning
    Well, you can see he's..he's been there
    because when you open the presents- and save everything
    It's clear that they've been wrapped with care
    Your name's on the tag
    Santa's got a brand new bag

    Saint Nick
    was there last night
    The man is a saint, Santa
    He's..the dude's outta sight, literally
    He ain't no drag
    Santa's got a brand new bag
    He's got a brand new bag invest in a bag the way he did
    and the way he does, I think, on a regular basis
    because, y'know, he's got all those kids
    Y'know, if you want to return somethin', you can
    Just save the original packaging
    and, uh, see, this one says, "No assembly required"
    'cause it's a book
    See what I'm sayin'? ...but it still comes with batteries
    I don't quite get that
    But my point is, he makes the time; he maps out the time to do's really about, uh, uh, making choices
    And, uh, next week: Moses
