OK, we know that Chanukah is over, and we said we wouldn't post any more Chanukah music videos and parodies this year.
But then STAR WARS: The Force Awakens opened worldwide to great acclaim, and you can't open a website or newspaper today without being flooded with Star Wars reviews, reports, and references.
So when we came across a 2011 video parody of Adam Sandler's The Chanukah Song that was built around Jewish references in the first six Star Wars films, we just couldn't resist sharing it with you.
Here's The Star Wars Hanukkah Song, by Luke Sienkowski, a composer of many parody songs under the name The Great Luke Ski. You'll find the lyrics just below the video.

The Star Wars Hanukkah Song
A parody of "The Hanukkah Song" by Adam Sandler, about the Jewish actors of the Star Wars films (also, an addendum to the earlier version done in the first "It's A Fanboy Christmas", 2000).
Parody lyrics by the great Luke Ski

Star Wars is a serial of thrills.
Instead of one sci-fi classic, we get six crazy films (and an animated series).
Some actors of the Jewish faith are in these tales of Jedi,
And if Adam Sandler can amend his song, then why the Hell can't I?
Natalie Portman, sure isn't a shiksa.
She was elected Queen of Naboo just before her Bot Mitzfah.
Gave birth to a Jewish Princess, she was Carrie Fisher's Momma.
Mark Hamill's not a jew,
but he was the voice of the Hanukkah Zombie on "Futurama".
Some people thought Watto was, with his raspy voice and schnozzes.
Well he's not, and neither is Yoda, but it turns out that Frank Oz is!
Yoda: Jew or Jew not, there is no try! Hoo hoo hoo hoo!
Mel Brooks gave us "Spaceballs", made us laugh until we burst.
Harrison Ford is a quarter Jewish, and he shot Greedo first! (SFX: blaster fire)
Get on your Taun-Taun-nukkah.
It's Star Wars Hanukkah.
You can hang out with Qui-Gon-nukkah.
On the Millenium Falcon-nukkah.
With a Wookie named Chewba-nukkah.
Everybody: Please help me Obi-Wan-nukkah.
So go see Episode One-nukkah.
And have a happy Han Solo!
[Han: Laugh it up, fuzzball!]
Just kidding! Happy Star Wars Hanukkah!
May the force be with you, everybody!
