The Lyrics

I got me a little dreidel
as present for the Christmas
but I don't do Hanukka
so that's a kind of mish-mash

It has some Hebrew letters
which seems so odd and crypto -
they must have secret meaning
at least they look so weird-o

Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
you're made out of some wood
oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
you're oddball as you could

While playing with that dreidel
is for some people holy
it feels a little boring
compared to Monopoly

It's gambling with the pennies
a kind of give and take
But I would prefer poker
to see who gets the stake

Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
if you were made of lead
some child could eat you and then -
he would end up dead

My kids they like that dreidel
they love to see it spinning
they like to see it wobble
they just don't care who's winning

My life is like a dreidel
like a top I'm spinning around
from work to home to dojo
there I'll get hit the ground

Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
if you were made from plastic
your spin would be erratic
you'd fall down like a spastic

Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
if you were made of steel
you'd be so cold and boring -
I'd paint you pink and teal

Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
if you were made of brass
you'd make a stylish keyfob
just perfect for this lass

Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
if you were made from pewter
you were quite slow and clumsy
I'd rather play computer!
