Chanukah Tonight (Song)


A sheyne meydl is looking for her dreydl Is it Chanukah? A sheyne meydl is looking for her dreydl. Is it Chanukah? It’s Chanukah tonight! A boy named Mendl. Oh yes. Is lighting the
first candle. Is it Chanukah? It’s Chanukah tonight! Oh, you reminded me – Oh my God! A sheyne meydl is looking for her dreydl
Is it Chanukah? It’s Chanukah tonight! A boy named Mendl is lighting the first candle.
Is it Chanukah?It’s Chanukah tonight! Well I like the Chanukah song very much. And
I think that they – they’re so embued with all this – they look – their faces are so
happy when they’re here It’s Chanukah. It’s Chanukah. It’s Chanukah,
tonight! A sheyne meydl is looking for her dreydl.
Is it Chanukah? It’s Chanukah, tonight! A boy named Mendl is lighting the first candle.
Is it Chanukah? It’s Chanukah tonight! Yes, it’s Chanukah, it’s Chanukah, tonight. A joyous, freylach holiday Di eltere menschen sway and pray. Di kinderlach all laugh and
play. It’s Chanukah, it’s Chanukah, it’s Chanukah
– tonight! Applesauce and latkes, chocolate gelt and
tchatchkes Is it Chanukah? It’s Chanukah, tonight! We celebrate our history remembering the Maccabees. Is it Chanukah? It’s Chanukah, tonight! Yes, it’s Chanukah, it’s Chanukah tonight.
A joyous, freylach holiday. Di eltere menschen sway and pray. Di kinderlach all laugh and
play. It’s Chanukah. It’s Chanukah. It’s Chanukah tonight! [instrumental break] Their faces are so happy when they’re here. It’s Chanukah. It’s Chanukah. It’s Chanukah,
tonight!
