Oh, Dreydl

Arrangement by Daria A. Marmaluk-Hajioannou

Played at Hanukkah; the holiday of lights, a dreydl is a beautiful little spinning top as well as a great toy and game. It's a fun game of chance as each player wins or gives up treats (such as chocolate gold coins, walnuts or pretzel sticks) depending on which face of the dreydl is "up" after their spin.


I have a little dreydl
I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready
A dreydl I will play

Oh dreydl, dreydl, dreydl
I made you out of clay
And when you're dry and ready
A dreydl I will play

My dreydl has four corners
And a letter on each face
To remind us of the miracle
That long ago took place

The letters also tell us
Who will lose or win
I have a pile of goodies (walnuts)
I'm ready, let's begin
