I Have a Little Dreidel

Melody - Melody - S. E. Goldfarb

S. S. Grossman

I have a little dreidel
I made it out of clay
and when it's dry and ready
then dreidel I shall play.

Oh dreidel dreidel dreidel
I made it out of clay
Oh dreidel dreidle dreidel
My dreidel I shall play.

It has a lovely body
with legs so short and thin
and when it is all tired
it drops and then I win.

My dreidel's always playful
It loves to dance and spin
A happy game of dreidel
Come play-now let's begin

... I made it out of sand,
... it crumbles in my hand!

Make up your own verses!

I have a little dreidl,
I made it out of schmalz,
And ev'ry time I spin it
It does a little waltz.
