Hanuka linda sta aki
Oco kandelas para mi.

Una kandelika
Dos kandelikas
Trez kandelikas
Kuatro kandelikas
Sintju kandelikas
Se kandelikas
Siete kandelikas
Oco kandelikas para mi.

Mucas fiestas vo fazer
Kun alegrijas i plazer.

Una kandelika...
Loz pastelikos vo kumer
Kun almendrikas i la
mjel. O...
Una kandelika...

Hanukah... what exciting memories. Beside the joy of lighting Hanuka candles and recieving small presents on each of the eight nights "matchmaking parties" were held; and while the young sang and danced their parents and grandparents enjoyed planning their children's weddings. Little almond honey cakes were eaten to assure luck and happiness- a good match.
The next year at the wedding the bridewas customarily asked "At which Hanukah party did you meet?"

Note: In the album, it's written "lyrics and the music by Flory Jagoda". But I should add this there's a Turkish folk song called "Bir mumdur" (One candle) with similiar lyrics and music. There are also Arabic and Kurdish versions. So I won't argue which one is the original. Just wanted to add as a note.

Any clear information on this subject from anyone will be welcomed, if you message me.
