      Lyrics:
       
      I’ll tell a tale
      Of Maccabees in Israel
      When the Greeks tried to assail
      But it was all to no avail
       
      The war went on and on and on
      Until the mighty Greeks were gone
       
      I flip my latkes in the air sometimes sayin ayy ohh spin the dreidel
      Just wanna celebrate for all eight nights singin ayy oh, light the candles
       
      We say Al HaNissim
      Oh yeah for all eight nights
      Then we play dreidel
      By the candlelight
       
      And I told you once
      Now I told you twice
      'Bout the miracle
      Of the candlelight
       
      They took the field
      The rivals thought “are they for real?"
      But those Maccabees they’d never yield
      They charged ahead with sword and shield
       
      The war went on and on and on
      Until the mighty Greeks were gone
       
      I flip my latkes in the air sometimes sayin ayy ohh spin the dreidel
      Just wanna celebrate for all eight nights singin ayy oh, light the candles
       
      We say Maoz Tzur
      Oh yeah for all eight nights
      Then we play dreidel
      By the candlelight
       
      And I told you once
      Now I told you twice
      'Bout the miracle
      Of the candlelight
       
      And the great menorah
      For eight days it kept on burning
      What a celebration
      A great return to Torah learning
       
      Cuz I can feel it
      And Ay-ay-ay
      Nes gadol, nes gadol
      Nes gadol hayah sham
       
      I flip my latkes in the air sometimes sayin ayy ohh spin the dreidel
      Just wanna celebrate for all eight nights singin ayy oh, light the candles
       
      We say Al HaNissim
      Oh yeah for all eight nights
      Then we play dreidel
      By the candlelight
       
      And I told you once
      Now I told you twice
      'Bout the miracle
      Of the candlelight
