                                     Festival Songs
                MA’OZ TZUR                                  MI Y’MALEL (Who Can Retell?)
               Ma’oz tzur yeshua-ti                         Mi y'malel g'vurot Yisrael otan mi yimneh?
               Lecha na-eh le-sha-beyach                    Hen b'chol dor yakum hagibor, go-el ha-am.
               Tikon bait te-fee-lati                       (Repeat above)
               Ve-sham todah ne-za-beyach.                  Sh'ma! Ba-yamim ha-hem ba-z'man hazeh
               Le’et ta-chin mat-beyach                     Macabee moshi’a u'fodeh
               Mee-tzar ha-me-na-beyach                     U'v'yameynu kol am Yisrael

               Az eg-mor be-sheer meez-mor                  Who can retell of the feats of Israel
               Chanukat ha-meez-beyach.                     Who can count them?
                                                            In every age a hero arose to save the people.
      I HAVE A LITTLE DREIDEL                               Hark! In those days at this time
I have a little dreidel, I made it out of clay              Maccabee saved and freed us
And when it's dry & ready, then dreidel I shall play!       And in our days the whole people of Israel
(Chorus)                                                    Arise united to save ourselves.
Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made it out of clay
And when it's dry & ready, then dreidel I shall play!          SEVIVON, SOV, SOV, SOV
It has a lovely body, with legs so short and thin       Sevivon, sov, sov, sov, Chanukah, hu chag tov
And when my dreidel’s tired, it drops and then I win!
                                                        Chanukah, hu chag tov, Sevivon, sov, sov, sov!
(Chorus)
                                                        Chag simcha hu la-am, Nes gadol haya sham
My dreidel’s always playful, it loves to dance & spin
                                                        Nes gadol haya sham, Chag simcha hu la-am.
A happy game of dreidel, come play now, let’s begin!
(Chorus)                                                Dreidel, spin, spin, spin. Chanukah is
                                                        a great holiday. It is a celebration
                                                        for our nation. A great miracle
      CHANUKAH OH CHANUKAH!
                                                        happened there.
Chanukah, Oh Chanukah, come light the Menorah
Let's have a party, we'll all
                                                                             NER LI
dance the hora.
                                                        Ner li, ner li, ner li da-kik
Gather round the table, we'll
                                                        Ba-Cha-nu-kah neri ad-lik (Repeat)

                                                        Ba-Cha-nu-kah neri ya'ir
Sivivon to play with, and latkes
                                                        Ba-Cha-nu-kah shi-rim a-shir (Repeat)
to eat.

And while we are playing,                               I have a little candle, My candle burns so bright!
The candles are burning bright                          I light my little candle, On Chanukah night.
One for each night, they shed a sweet light
                                                        My little candle seems to say,
To remind us of days long ago.
                                                        "Thank You, O God, for this holiday!"
