Hanukkah Song

The Cha-nu-ki-ah How many candles,
How many candles,
How many candles do we light.
On our chanukiah,
On our chanukiah
The first Hanukkah night?
One, one, one, one, one, one
One candle burning,
One candle burning
The first Hanukkah night.

You continue singing the first verse adding: second-two, third-three, fourth-four, fifth-five, sixth-six, seventh-seven, and end with eighth-eight.


Tune: row, row, row your boat Spin, spin, spin the dreidel
spin it round with me.
When the dreidel stops and falls don't forget to scream!


Tune: I'm a little teapotI'm a little latke, round and brown,
Here is my upside, here is my down.
When I am all ready, take a bite,
And eat me up on Hanukkah night.



Sung to the tune of "I've Been Working on the Railroad"                   I've been lighting all the candles
On this Hanukah night.
I've been lighting all the candles
Just to see them shining bright.
Flicker, flicker little candle
Fill me with your glow
Now the time has come to count them
Ready set let's go!          
(Count candles)



Hanukkah Lights
(sung to 6 Little Ducks) 

Nine little candles in my Hanukkah light,
Burning brightly throughout the night.
But one little candle is taller than the rest,
We call that candle the Shamash. 

We light the candles one by one,
We play with dreidels and have some fun.
We dance the hora and tell the story,
Of Judah Maccabbee and his glory.
