During a special cameo appearance at the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief, comedian Adam Sandler paid tribute to the resilience of the NY/NJ metropolitan residents affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Set to the tune of Leonard Cohens oft-covered classic Hallelujah, Sandler and David Lettermans long-time sidekick Paul Shaffer performed a parody titled Sandy, Screw Ya!
Name-dropping every famous New Yorker under the sun from Mayor Michael Bloomberg to Alex Rodriguez to Donald Trumps combover, the lyrics were as follows:
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 youve been knocked down in the past / Taking shots they thought would last / But you always get right up shouting Hallelujah! / Hallelujah / Sandy, screw ya / Well get through ya / Cause were New Yorkers.

Kanye West just wasted 20 good minutes with that horrible display of vulgarity. Certainly, the powers that be could have gotten someone else to perform much better material. That was perfectly dreadful.
I turned off the sound during his set, leaned back the recliner, closed my eyes and enjoyed 20 min of blissful silence and the woodstove.
I don’t feel sorry for the victims of Sandy.
They wanted a big, inefficient government and now they have it.
I’ll keep my money.
Let them go beg Obama for some of his.
Kanye West is 99.999% pure ghetto trash. But he makes a lotta jack, cuz he's an artist.
I’m from that area and I couldn’t agree more.
That was great. I appreciate the posting. I missed it. The Old English guys stole the show for the most part.
Adam Sandler’s bit was hilarious! OMG!
A friend posted the video of Sandler at FB and it is funny. So very NY. Probably the only watchable part of the evening’s show.
WTF was that skirt Kanye was wearing - really odd. Anyway, I can’t stand him, I changed the channel.
That was a hilarious version of “Hallelujah”!
Funny. Sandler is great. Nice of him to raise funds for the shore recovery. God bless him. Thanks.
Kayne does have an ugly mouth and dark world view. I hope for him, that this phase of no-talent, no-heart and no soul passes quickly. I pray he moves upward into inspiration.
