Is there a more polarizing figure in comedy than Adam Sandler? You either hate the very sight of him, or giggle uncontrollably at his childlike antics — like the U.S. Congress, there doesn’t seem to be a middle ground.
On Wednesday the Saturday Night Live alum appeared with Paul Shaffer at the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief, and presented original lyrics of a new song, Sandy, Screw Ya, to the tune of Leonard Cohen’s oft-covered classic Hallelujah. Several attacks on New York sports figures ensued.
The terror of the hurricane / The unforgiving wind and rain / New York, the world held its breath as the storm took it to you / But you’ve been knocked down in the past / Taking shots they thought would last / But you always get right up shouting ‘Hallelujah!’ / Hallelujah / Sandy, screw ya / We’ll get through ya / ‘Cause we’re New Yorkers.
Cause we believe this too shall pass / Like when Sanchez fumbled into an ass / During the playoffs, A-Rod telling girls in the crowd ‘I wanna do ya’ / The Mets have sucked since ’86 / Isaiah tried to ruin the Knicks / But now Jason Kidd and the boys can freakin’ school ya / Hallelujah / Sandy, screw ya / We’ll get through ya / ‘Cause we’re New Yorkers.
Caution: some lyrics slightly NSFW.
