A Jewish a cappella group Six13 has composed a catchy, Hanukkah-themed parody of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” It works, considering “Shake It Off” and “Hanukkah” have the same number of syllables.

The two versions of the holiday-themed refrain:

Cause we’re counting up to eight, eight, eight, eight, eight
We escaped an awful fate, fate, fate, fate, fate
We’re gonna celebrate, -brate, -brate, -brate, -brate
It’s Hanukkah, Hanukkah!

Cause we’re counting up to eight, eight, eight, eight, eight
And these latkes taste so great, great, great, great, great
Yeah that’s how we celebrate, -brate, -brate, -brate, -brate
It’s Hanukkah, Hanukkah!

Hanukkah begins the evening of Tuesday, Dec. 16.
