MY DREIDEL

I HAVE A LITTLE DREIDEL 

I have a little dreidel,
I made it out of clay,
And when it's dry and ready
Then dreidel I shall play!

Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel,
I made it out of clay
Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
Now dreidel I shall play

It has a lovely body
With a leg so short and thin,
And when it gets all tired
It drops and then I win!

Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel,
With a leg so short and thin,
Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel,
It drops and then I win.
