Oh Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkahhanukkah-songbook
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
Sivivon 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
     One for each night, they shed a sweet light
     to remind us of days long ago.

Oh Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah
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.
     One for each night, they shed a sweet light,
     to remind us of days long ago.
