The Maccabeats – Candlelight - Chanukah

A great Chanukah song by the Maccabeats

A great Chanukah song by the Maccabeats

I'll tell a tale-ale-ale-ale
Of Maccabees in Israel-ale-ale-ale
When the Greeks tried to assail-sail-ail-ail
But it was all to no avail-ail-ail-ail

The war went on and on and on
Until the mighty Greeks were gone

I flip my latkes in the air sometimes sayin' ay oh spin the dreidel
Just wanna celebrate for all eight nights singin' ay 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 field field field
The rivals thought "are they for real?" Real real real
But those macabees they'd never yield yield yield yield
They charged ahead with sword and shield shield shield shield
The war went on and on and on
Until the mighty Greeks were gone

I flip my latkes in the air sometimes sayin' ay oh spin the dreidel
Just wanna celebrate for all eight nights singin' ay 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

'Cause 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' ay oh spin the dreidel
Just wanna celebrate for all eight nights singin' ay 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
