Lyrics

Chanukah, Oh Chanukah, come light the Menorah
Let's have a party, we'll all dance the hora
Gather round the table, we'll have a treat
Sevivon to play and latkes to eat

And while we are playing
The candles are burning bright
One for each night, they shed a sweet light
To remind us of days long ago

Y'mei ha'chanukah, chanukat mikdasheinu
B'gil uv'simcha, m'malim et libeinu
Lalla vayom s'vivneinu yisov
Sufganiyot nocha bam larov

Ha'iru! Hadliku!
Neort Chanuka rabim
Al hanisim v'al haniflaot
Asher chol'lu Makabim

Chanukah, Oh Chanukah, come light the Menorah
Let's have a party, we'll all dance the hora
Gather round the table, we'll have a treat
Sevivon to play and latkes to eat

And while we are playing
The candles are burning bright
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 days long ago.
