S’vi Von

Turn around

Make that spinning sound

Nun, Gimel, Hay and Shin

What do those letters mean?

Nes Gadol Hayah Sham

Hear that sound

Gather ’round

Long ago, where we were

A great miracle happened there

Put a penny or a nut

Or a raisin in the pot

Spin the Dreidel

If it’s Nun

You do nothing

You do not

If it’s Gimel

Take it all

If it’s Hay

One half, hooray

If it’s Shin

Put one in

That’s how you play the Dreidel game

(Repeat, faster and faster!)
