Oh Chanukah, Oh Chanukah
Come light the Menorah
Let's have a party
We'll all dance the Horah.

Spin the whirling dreidels
All week long
Eating the sizzling latkes
Sing a happy song.

Now light them tonight then
The candles all in a row
We tell the wondrous story of God in His glory
The wonders of long ago.

This version has Hannukah instead of Chanukah


Oh Hannukah, Oh Hannukah
Come light the menorah
lets have a party, we'll all dance the horah.

Gather round' the table we'll give you a treat
dreidels to play with and latkes to eat.

And while we were singing the candles were burning low
one for each night as they shed a sweet light,
they remind us of years long ago,
one for each night as they shed a sweet light,
they remind us of years long ago. .
