Lyrics: Is this the eighth night We light with family? Recall with great pride Our escape from Greek tyranny? Kindle the lights Remember the Maccabees How did those five boys Lead us to victory? Well, they stood up against mighty foes With their oil running low Now we sing while lights glow Ma’oz tzur yeshuati Yeshuati Judah, our faith was banned Evil Antiochus said No more Torah could be read Judah, Mattathias’ son You would not throw our heritage away Judah… (Nes gadol haya po) Am Yisrael Chai These miracles our people will recall (“Guitar” solo) I spun a gimmel, now I’ve got a lot of gelt Sevivon, sevivon, will you spin this clay dreidel? Chanukiah lighting, presents are delighting me! Chanukiah! Chanukiah! Chanukah! Sevivon! Sufganiyot! I light the candles with people who love me He lights the candles with his whole family Sharing the joy of our proud history! Sevivon, sov, sov, sov More sufganiyot? More latkes… No! Please more sufganiyot? Sevivon! More latkes… Please more sufganiyot? Sevivon! More latkes… Please more sufganiyot? Sevivon! More sufganiyot? Spinning, spinning, spinning, spinning sevivon! Lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, lo, lo! Oh aba, ema, aba, ema… Aba, more sufganiyot? We fry our food as we celebrate the Maccabees We’re free, we’re free! So you think you can serve latkes baked and not fried But you know oil recalls those miraculous lights Oh, bubbe Can’t do this to me, bubbe Just gonna need more Just gonna need more sour cream Know what really matters Like the Maccabees Know what really matters Thanks to G-d, our people are free Nes gadol haya po…
