Adam Sandler takes it to Sandy at NY benefit show

NEW YORK (AP) - Adam Sandler has a special New York salute to Superstorm Sandy that songwriter Leonard Cohen never would have envisioned.

The comic performed a special version of Cohen's oft-sung "Hallelujah" at Wednesday's Sandy benefit concert in New York. The rewritten chorus says, "Sandy, screw ya, we'll get through ya, because we're New Yawkers."

Sandler wore a New York Jets T-shirt to sing his ribald rewrite. He was accompanied by Paul Shaffer on the piano.

The song mined Donald Trump, Michael Bloomberg, the New York Knicks, Times Square porn and Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez for laugh lines.

Organizers say concert ticket sales alone have raised more than $30 million for victims of the October storm.
