Chanukhah Song

I confess to being a pretty ecumenical kind of guy. And so I am embarrassed that I know only on song for Chanukhah. And so, with apologies to Jake and Harry, who asked me NOT to do the dreidel song...here is a reprise from last year.

Axel has a dreidel

He made it out of clay

When it was dry and ready

Then dreidel he did play


CHORUS

Oh dreidel dreidel dreidel

They made it out of clay

When it was dry and ready

Then dreidel he did play


Jakey has a dreidel

It's made of stuffy stuff

And when he tries to play with it

Just Harry he gets rough


Chorus

Oh Dreidel Dreidel Dreidel

It's made of stuffy Stuff

When Jake tries to play with it

Just Harry he gets rough


I like to play with dreidel

It loves to dance and spin

I chase it round the corner

And then we start again


CHORUS

Oh Dreidel Dreidel Driedel

I watch it dance and spin

I Chase it round the corner

And then we start again


I chase it cross the kitchen

I chase it down the stairs

We run under the table

We’re really quite a pair


CHORUS

Oh Dreidel Dreidel Dreidel

I like to chase that thing

I chase it nearly everywhere

We're really quite a pair


It never says it’s tired

It never wants to stop

It is the perfect toy for me

My lovely dreidel top


CHORUS

Oh dreidel dreidel dreidel,

The perfect toy for me

It never wants to stop and rest

My lovely dreidel top


So every year at Hanukkah

We play this lovely game

A lovely game for wirey boys

And dreidel is its name.


Chorus

Oh Dreidel Dreidel Dreidel

A game for wirey boys

Of clay or stuffy, or of wood

Still dreidel is its name.
