South Park – The Dreidle Song lyrics

Kyle: Ok, Ike, you're my little brother, so I have to show
You how to celebrate Hanukkah. This is called a dreidle:
You spin it and see where it lands, and you sing this song:

I have a little dreidle, I made it out of clay!
And when its dry and ready, with dreidle I shall play!
Oh, dreidle dreidle dreidle! I made you out of clay!
Dreidle dreidle dreidle, with dreidle I shall play!

Now you try it Ike! Just spin it with your fingers like this!

Ike: H I J K L O P, um... Its on like... All the way!
*Mumbles* came down the wain and washed the spider out!

Cartman: Hey, what the hell are you doing?
Kyle: Oh, hey Cartman! We're playing dreidle! You wanna try?
Cartman: Sure!

Heres a little dreidle; that's small and made of clay,
But I'm not gonna play with it
Cuz dreidles fuckin gay!

Kyle: Hey, shut your mouth, fat ass!

Cartman: Jews... Play stupid games!
Jews.... That's why they're lame!

*Kyle and Cartman sing*
Stan: Whats going on? Oh, its that Hanukkah thing.
Cartman: Its so amazing! You spin this thing on the ground,
And it goes round and round, I could watch it all day!
Stan: Let me try!
I'll try to make it spin.
It fell I'll try again!
*All sing*
Mrs. Brovnowski: Hello boys!

Mrs. Brovnowski:

You'll know our people always win! Keep spinning!
*Cartman joins in*
Kyle: Oh, hi Dad!
Mr. Brovnowski: Hello everybody! Say, can I join in?
