SHEKET SHEKET

Sheket-sheket-sheket-sheket…
Chanukiah doleket,
Uvacheder bli sha'on
Mistovev hasevivon,

Mistovev velo ayeif.
Ach lefeta hu yoshev.
-Ani ra'ev!- Yikra/yagid bekol
-Bevakasha, t'nu le'echol!

Lo dagim velo matzah
Lo marak velo k'tzitzah,
Levivah li metukah,
T'nu lichvod haChanukah!

QUIET, QUIET

Sshh-quiet-sshh-quiet…
Chanukah lights are burning bright,
While in the room you'll also see
The dreidl spinning constantly.

Spinning on, it tires not,
It suddenly stops still, on the spot.
-I'm hungry!- comes a cry, loud and clear,
-Please, give me food to eat!- is what we hear.

No fish or matzah shall it be,
No soup or kebab today for me,
But a sweet pancake,
Chanukah to celebrate!
