Adam Sandler on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, April 2, 2020

Adam Sandler has regaled us with his now-legendary “Hanukkah Song” and his “Thanksgiving Song,” so perhaps it was only a matter of time before he introduced some new editions to his library.  On the April 6 broadcast of NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the actor joined the host for a social distancing song, “Don’t Touch Grandma.” And he did it in that voice.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, many of the top late night variety shows are adjusting to the “new normal” by taping their series from their hosts’ homes. And in most cases, they’re featuring guests. But instead of the celebs cozying up to the host in the traditional manner with a sofa or club chair positioned next to the host’s desk, the guests show up via Skype or by similar means.

Such was the case on April 6 when Sandler joined his fellow Saturday Night Live alum Fallon at the at-home edition of The Tonight Show.

“Thanks to this stupid virus,” Sandler sings, “there are new Grandma rules.”

Its lyrics include “Grandmas want to knit you sweaters and to bake you cookies, but you must tell your Grandma… ‘no touchy, just looky’.”

On the April 2 broadcast of NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the actor debuted “Quarantine Song.” Following the traditional Q-and-A, the host asked his friend, “Would you mind doing a song for us?”

We’ve heard “Hanukkah Song” countless times, with such clever lyrics as, David Lee Roth lights the menorah; so do Kirk Douglas, James Caan and the late Dinah Shore. Guess who eats together at the Carnegie Deli? Bowser from Sha Na Na and Arthur Fonzarelli!

And Sandler’s “Thanksgiving Song” features Eat that turkey all night long, 50 million Elvis fans can’t be wrong.

In the “Quarantine Song” Sandler notes, “I’m getting really sick of my family” and “I’m teaching math to my kids and that can’t be good for America.” He then offers a tribute to our medical heroes. “We love you, doctors and nurses, you’re saving lives every day.”

Sandler was born on September 9, 1966.
