Is it hot in here? ...or is it just me? I provide beauty, warmth and light for the whole family. When these 8 candles are all lighted, Though it's clear everyone's excited, In my glow they will bask, but I just have to ask: Is it hot in here, or is it just me? Is it warm in here? I have to say I spend most of the year packed up away, Though the food is frying in the kitchen, I'm the one who's really schvitzin' With 9 sticks of fire, I just have to inquire: Is it hot in here, or is it just me? Warmest wishes for a Happy Hanukkah.

The radio is on and the television, too. All this noise that keeps me company Cant match the thought of you. I wash my clothes and shower. To start the day off new. But the only time that matters Is a day that starts with you. From the dawn until the sunset. From the sun until the moon. From beginning to the end. From much later til too soon. Youre where I want to be. The last one I want to see. Whether why or where or how, Youre my forever and my now. My every day of living Id trade for minutes with just you. Im walking while Im thinking, But Id rather run with you.
