A NEW DREIDLE SONG:

         I

I have a little dreidle            
I made this one from clay
I thought I'd make another
And try it a different way.

         II

I took a piece of cardboard
Some staples and the pen
But whey I try to use it
It simply would not spin

         Chorus

Oh, dreidle, dreidle, dreidle              
How come you will not spin             
I think I'll make another
And try my luck again.



         III

I took a piece of metal
and made one in the shop,
I tell you then what happened
When that dreidle dropped

         Chorus

Oh, dreidle, dreidle, dreidle
It fell upon my toe
and when they take my cast off
I won't use it any more.

         IV

I made one out of cotton
It was much fun to play
I left the window open
My dreidle flew away


         Chorus

Oh, dreidle, dreidle, dreidle
I thought I'd be so bright,
I think I'll make another
This time I'll get it right



         V

I made one out of ice-cream
It was so nice and sweet
But one day I was hungry
My dreidle I did eat

         Chorus

Oh, dreidle, dreidle, dreidle
I better stick with clay
And when it's dry and ready
My dreidle I shall play!
