Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'O Hanukkah' (Yiddish & Hebrew words
There's another English version which my daughter found attributed to F Minkoff (I presume that's Fran Minkoff, discussed in http://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=34165)
Oh Chanukah, O Chanukah, a time to remember,
A jolly, jolly holiday that comes in December.
Ev'ry day for eight days, dreidels will spin,
Crispy little latkes, tasty and thin.
And while we are playing the candles are burning low;
One for each night, they shed a sweet light
To remind us of days long ago.
(repeat last two lines).
