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

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

Yeah, I flip my latkes in the air sometimes
Sayin' hey-o, spin the dreidel
Just wanna celebrate for all eight nights
Singin', hey-o, light the candle

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
Their rivals thought are they for real, real, real, real?
Those Maccabees, they'd never yield, yield, yield, yield
They charged ahead with sword and shield, shield, shield, shield, yeah, yeah

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

Yeah, I flip my latkes in the air sometimes
Sayin' hey-o, spin the dreidel
Just wanna celebrate for all eight nights
Singin', hey-o, light the candle

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 I
Nes gadol, nes gadol
Nes gadol hayah sham

Nes gadol hayah sham
Nes gadol hayah sham

I flip my latkes in the air sometimes
Sayin' hey-o, spin the dreidel
Just wanna celebrate for all eight nights
Singin', hey-o, light the candle

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
