Traslation:
I am a little dreidel, I am made from lead.
Come let’s all play dreidel –
Oh, dreidel one two three.
Oh, dreidel, dreidel, dreidel,
oh, dreidel, dreidel, spin.
So let’s all play dreidel,
in dreidel, one and two.
And I love to dance,
to spin in a circle.
So let’s all dance a dreidel-circle.
Oh, dreidel, dreidel, dreidel,
oh dreidel, dreidel, spin.
So let’s all play dreidel,
in dreidel one and two.
English Version:
I Have a Little Dreidel
I have a little dreidel,
I made it out of clay,
and when it’s dry and ready,
oh dreidel I shall play!
Oh! Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel,
I made it out of clay,
and when it’s dry and ready,
oh e I shall play!
It has a lovely body,
with leg so short and thin,
and when my dreidel’s tired,
it drops and then I win!
Oh! Dreidel, dreidel, dreideel
with leg so short and thin,
Oh! Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel,
it drops and then I win!
My dreidel’s always playful,
l it loves to dance and spin,
A happy game of dreidel,
come, play now, let’s begin!
Oh! Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel,
it loves to dance and spin,
Oh! Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel,
Come play now let’s begin.

I have a candle, a candle so bright,
On Hanukkah my candle burns bright.
On Hanukkah its light burns long,
On Hanukkah I sing this song.
On Hanukkah its light burns long,
On Hanukkah I sing this song.
