KHANUKE 
חנוכה 

Khanuke, oy khanuke, a yon-tev a sheyner,
a lustiker, a freylekher, nito noch azoyner.
Ale tog in dreydl shpiln mir,
heyse gute latkes esn mir.

Geshvinder tsindt, kinder,
di khanuke-likhtelekh on!
(x2)

Lomir ale in eynem
tsum yon-tev dem sheynem
zingen un tantsn in kon; kon.

Yiddish - CHANUKKAH 
 

Chanukkah, oh channukah, a beautiful festival,
a merry & a happy one, there's not one like it.
All day we play with the dreidl,
we eat good, hot latkes.

Light up, kids,
the chanukkah candles!
(x2)

Let's all together -
to the beautiful festival -
sing and dance around; around.
