How many nights for Hanukkah?
Happy joyous Hanukkah
Nights and days, days and night,
Happy joyous Hanukkah

Chorus:

Eight are the days, and eight are the nights

How many candles do I light?
Happy joyous Hanukkah
Eight are the candles you should light
Happy joyous Hanukkah

Chorus:
Eight are the nights of Hanukkah
Happy joyous Hanukkah
Eight are the days, and eight are the nights
Happy joyous Hanukkah

One for Moses on the Mount
Happy joyous Hanukkah
Two for the mother and father love
Happy joyous Hanukkah

Chorus:
Eight are the nights of Hanukkah
Happy joyous Hanukkah
Eight are the days, and eight are the nights
Happy joyous Hanukkah

Three for the Books that Ezra taughts
Happy joyous Hanukkah
Four's for the Hebrew children

Nine is for God's light that shines
Eight for the newbuilt alter place
Seven for the sons of Hannah that died
Six for kings and the tricks they tried
Five for the brothers Maccabee
Four for the Hebrew children
Three for the books that Ezra taught
Two for the father and mother love
One for Moses on the Mount

Chorus:
Eight are the nights of Hanukkah
Happy joyous Hanukkah
Eight are the days, and eight are the nights
