Tonight is Hanukkah
Got everything we need
A frying pan, some oil
And a latke recipe
Let’s celebrate our ancestry
We’ve got ooh, ooh, ooh
The latke recipe

Four potatoes, peel and grate
Shred an onion, tears streaming down your face
Then salt and pepper to your taste
Add a tablespoon of flour, a pinch of baking powder
Then add two eggs
And mix it all together
And while we stir we sing!

Tonight is Hanukkah
Got everything we need
A frying pan, some oil
For your latke recipe
Let’s celebrate our victory
We’ve got ooh, ooh, ooh
The latke recipe

Pour enough oil to cover the pan
(Calories)
Turn up the heat but don’t burn your hands
(So many calories)
Now you’re ready to complete the plan
Gotta take a spoon and fill it, then press it on the skillet

Few at a time
Fry one side then the other
‘Till both are golden brown

Tonight is Hanukkah
Got everything we need
A frying pan, some oil
For your latke recipe
Let’s celebrate our ancestry
We’ve got ooh, ooh, ooh
The latke recipe

Two thousand years
Of joyous celebration
A single jar
That burned for eight days
The food we eat
As part of our tradition
Keeps that flame alive!

Tonight is Hanukkah
Got everything we need
Good friends and family here to try
Our latke recipe
Best served with applesauce, you see
We’ve got ooh, ooh, ooh
The latke recipe
