Ocho Kandelikas


by Flory Jagoda
Flory Jagoda’s popular holiday song has its roots in a Bosnian village

Hanukah linda ‘sta aki, ocho kandelas para mi,
Hanukah Linda ‘sta aki, ocho kandelas para mi.

Una kandelika, dos kandelikas, tres kandelikas, kuatro kandelikas, sintyu kandelikas, sej kandelikas, siete kandelikas, ocho kandelas para mi.

Muchas fiestas vo fazer, con alegrias, i plazer.

Los pastelikos vo kumer, con almendrikas i la miel
Los pastelikos vo kumer, con almendrikas i la myel.

Beautiful Chanukah is here, eight candles for me.

One candle, two candles, three candles, four candles, five candles, six candles, seven candles, eight candles for me.

Many parties will be held, with joy and with pleasure.

One candle, two candles, three candles, four candles, five candles, six candles, seven candles, eight candles for me.

We will eat pastelikos [a Sephardic delicacy] with almonds and honey.

One candle, two candles, three candles, four candles, five candles, six candles, seven candles, eight candles for me.
