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 teapot
I'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!
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.
