Hanukkah, Hanukkah, festival of lights,
Candles glow in a row, seven days eight nights.
Hanukkah, Hanukkah, make your dreidel spin,
Round and round, round and round, everyone join in!

Hanukkah, Hanukkah, what a merry time,
Cakes to eat, what a treat, see the faces shine.
Hanukkah, Hanukkah, sing and dance this way.
Round and round, round and round, happy holiday!

  1. I taught this song today to 3 kindergarten classes. IT WAS A ROUSING SUCCESS!! They not only enjoyed the song, but enjoyed using the rhythm sticks and xylophones as well. (I used xylophones, removing all but 5 bars.)

    I look forward to teaching this to my other 4 classes 🙂 THANK YOU!!

    I learned this song as a first grader in 1966. I have never been able to find the full lyrics for it until now! Thanks for posting them!
