O Chanukah, O Chanukah
A time to remember.
A joyful, jolly holiday that comes in December
Every day for eight days, dreidels will spin,
Crispy little latkes, tasty and thin.
And nightly, so brightly,
The candles of Chanukah glow.
One for each night,
They shed a sweet light,
To remind us of days long ago.
(repeat last three lines)
O Chanukah O Chanukah,
Come light the menorah.
Let's have a party,
We'll all dance the hora.
Gather round the table, we'll give you a treat
Dreydels to play with and latkes to eat,
And while we are playing,
the candles are burning low.
One for each night, they shed a sweet light
to remind us of days long ago (2x)
