Daveed Diggs – Puppy for Hanukkah Lyrics

Puppy for Hanukkah Lyrics – Daveed Diggs

You know what I wantah
(What you want, what you want, what you want, what you want, what you want)
I want a puppy for Hanukkah
(Wanna puppy, wanna puppy, wanna puppy, wanna puppy, wanna puppy)
And I’ma get just what I wanted, yeah
(Gon’ get it, gon’ get it, gon’ get it, gon’ get it, gon’ get it)
I’mma get a puppy for Hanukkah
(Get a puppy, get a puppy, get a puppy, get a puppy)

Some kids write lists for they Christmas gifts
And they send ’em all off to they Santas
But I don’t trip off a list for my gifts
I’mma get it cause I got eight chances
That’s right, eight nights, festival of lights
Go hard for a week with a plus one
So y’all keep stressin’, be good, learn lessons
But Hanukkah is the best fun

And you can laugh if you want, huh
(Laughin’, laughin’, laughin’, laughin’, laughin’)
But I’mma get a puppy for Hanukkah
(Get a puppy, get a puppy, get a puppy, get a puppy)
Clarinet, no harmonica
(Play the clarinet, play the clarinet, play the clarinet)
When I get a puppy for Hanukkah (That’s right)
[Verse Two]
Okay, first night and I’m feeling right
Mama came with a gift-wrapped box
It don’t bark, don’t bite, don’t cry when I shake it
So I’m pretty sure that it’s just socks
But you never know, miracles happen
I tap in and start to rip the paper
Oh, please let it be the puppy that I wanted
I don’t wanna wait till-
Oh, yep that’s just socks

I’mma get what I wanted to
(What you want, what you want, what you want, what you want, what you want)
I’mma get a puppy for Hanukkah
(Get a puppy, get a puppy, get a puppy, get a puppy, get a puppy)
I ain’t even trippin’ on it, bruh
(I ain’t gonna trip, I ain’t gonna trip, I ain’t gonna trip)
Cause I’mma get a puppy for Hanukkah (Oh yeah)

Night two, what it doo, candles get lit, lit (It’s lit)
Latkes, sour cream is the best dip (Dip)
Applesauce on the side, I might just get-
Say the Brachot first!
Adonai ain’t gonna trip
Baruch atah Adonai
Eloheinu melech ha’olam
Asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav
V’tzivanu l’hadlik ner
Shel Hanukkah
That blessing is a bop, now I’ve said it
Not sure what it means, but I learned it phonetic
By the way, you got a present for me, is it what I wanted?
Pass that shamash, let’s get the flame started

Ooh, for me?
Oh! Well, you shouldn’t have, I-
Well, I guess I’ll just, um…
Oh, that’s a, that’s a sweater!
Did somebody knit this?
It’s really, it’s really great

This isn’t going how I saw it, huh
(It ain’t goin’ well, it ain’t goin’ well)
I really hope I get this puppy for Hanukkah
(Get a puppy, get a puppy, get a puppy, get a puppy, get a puppy)
It’s all I ever really wanted for
(It’s all I want, it’s all I want, it’s all I want)
Just a puppy for Hanukkah (Gimme that dog)

Lights keep burning and nights just pass
Menorah is now covered up with wax
I thought it would be obvious, I didn’t want to ask
But will tonight be the night I get my puppy at last?
My feet are warm and my body is cozy
The hats and the mittens and umbrella are totally great
Love it all, I’m the king of style
There’s one thing I’ve been wanting all this while

Wait
Wait, is that?
Could it be?
It’s- ha ha!
Oh my gosh!

You’re everything I ever wanted for
(You are what I want, you are what I want, you are what I want)
You’re my puppy for Hanukkah
(You’re my puppy, you’re my puppy, you’re my puppy, you’re my puppy, you’re my puppy)
I’mma name you Monica
Nah, probably not, that’s a weird name for a dog
(That’s a weird name, that’s a weird name, that’s a weird name)
But it rhymes with Hanukkah

I got my Hanukkah puppy
I got my Hanukkah puppy
I got my Hanukkah puppy
I got my Hanukkah puppy
I got my Hanukkah puppy
I got my Hanukkah puppy
I got my Hanukkah puppy
