Reprise of Chanuka song

This is a reprint from last year. We will try to start doing our song rewrites soon, this holiday caught us sleeping. Or something. So once again, send us your nominations for rewrites, and we will do as many as possible, with the easiest ones first, of course...

Gussie
See Mack and Sally's verse below. (in blue)




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 Jakey tries to play with it

Just Harry he gets rough


Mackie has a driedel

He has to share it though

When Sally starts to play with it

She really makes it go

Oh Driedel dreidel

Round and round you go

When Sally starts to play with it

She really makes it go.


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.

So since we weren't around last year, it's not a reprint for us! You're good, Gussie. One more reason to really like you! (There are lots. This is just one more.)

Very clever. We like it.
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Most festive rewrite of the song.

You two look a bit dorked out in that photo. Too much spinning?

Slobbers,

YAY!! Our favorite thing about the holly daze (except for the cookies)!!! Gussie songs, oh yah.

How about "Children, Go Where I Send Thee"? The servant loves that one, and it should translate nicely into dog.

This is all new to us, Gus, since we just met you this year. What a great song writer you are - this was a lot of fun.

Ah, we were missing our dreidel song. Thank you for the reprise.

But did Mango think we were you -- and that we were dorky? Must go address that misconception right away! (Only one of us barkies is dorkus incorrigibilis.)

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry (who moi???)
