The Lyrics

well, they say its kinda happenin'
how his jewish congregation swings
you know they proclaim emancipation
the traditions that the jewish keep
can often last more than a week
you know its more than just a celebration

and the dreidel will rock
yes the dreidel...the dreidel will rock
and i say...rock on...rock on

egyptians held the jewish down
so moses led them out of town
they say "ol' moses saved us, boy....saved us, boy"
to that early race, they hold a feast
and carry on, eight days at least
and they're overjoyed

and the dreidel will rock
yes the dreidel...the dreidel will rock
and i say...rock on...rock on

have you seen my menorah ?

and when that jesus christ came 'round
they tried to drum him out of town
they couldn't take that boy...take that boy
they nailed him up by hands and feet
and they thought that was really neat
they're still overjoyed

and the dreidel will rock
yes the dreidel...the dreidel will rock
and i say...rock on...rock on

I liked everything but that last 2 lines of the last verse...bordering on anti-Semititc, IMHO.

Thought it was about Rick too; glad it wasn't and them last two lines were the best part

When I read the title, I thought it was a slam on DLR (original VH lead singer) as he is Jewish, until I read the lyrics.
