Chanukah Songs

Antiyochus  (Tune "Where is thumbkin")

Antiyochos X2

He was bad X2

He made the Jewish people X2

Very sad X2

Judah the Maccabee X2

Did what he should X2

He told Antiyochus X2

You're no good X2

So we celebrate X2

Chanukah X2

We eat lots of latkes X2

And light the chanukia X2

I have a little Dreidle

 

I have a little Dreidle

I made out of clay

And when it's dry and ready

Oh Dreidle I will play

Chorus: Oh Dreidle, Dreidle, Dreidle

I made it out of clay

And when it's dry and ready,

Oh Dreidle I will play

It has a lovely body

With leg so short and thin

And when it gets all tired

It drops and then I win 

Chorus: Oh Dreidle, Dreidle, Dreidle...

Three Little latkes  (Tune: A B C D)

Three Little latkes sizzling in a pan

One jumped out said "catch me if you can!"

It jumped and it ran around the kitchen floor

And when I turned around, It ran right out the door... BYE!

Two little latkes...

One little latkes...

 

 

Mr. Shamash

 

Mr. shamash lights eight candles

Eight little candles burning bright!

Mr. shamash lights eight candles

Chanukah is here

 

Flicker, flicker eight little candles

Flicker flicker burning bright

 

 

 

I’m a little latke (Tune: I'm a little teapot)

 

I’m a little latke

Brown and light

Everyone eats me on Chanukah night

When I get all fried up

Hear me shout

Just flip me over and turn me out!

 

I'm a little latkah (Tune: Come Under My Umbrella)

I'm a little latkah

A nice potato latkah 

I come to you on Chanuka

For everyone to eat

You can eat me with apple sauce

You can eat me with jam

You can eat me with sour cream

Or just as I am

 

I’m a Dreidle

 

I’m a Dreidle can you see?

Hebrew letters over me

Nun and gimlet hay and shin

Do you like the shape I’m in?

I’m a game (4x)

Oh Chanukah Oh Chanukah

Oh Chanukah Oh 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

Dreidels to play with 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 of days long ago

1-2-3-4 Marching Song

1-2-3-4 (X2)

Take your drums and march along with me.

1-2-3-4, 1-2-3

Everyone can be a maccabee!

Brave and strong

We march along

There's lots to do before the day is done,

Chanukah time is here again

Happy Chanukah to everyone!

I am lighting all the candles

I am lighting all the candles

On this Chanukah night

I am lighting all the candles 

To see them burning bright

Flicker, flicker little candles

Fill me with your glow

Now it's time for me to count them

Ready set go!

Sevivon Sov, Sov, Sov

One little two little three little candles

One little, two little, three little candles

Four little, five little, six little candles

Seven little, eight little chanukah candles

And the shamash too
