From the album With This Flame

A New Orleans Jazzy celebration of the fabulous Jelly Doughnut (the one that often gets overshadowed by the luscious latke) featuring a bevy of strings and woodwinds worthy of a Mummers parade.

Lyrics

SUFGANIYOT
Words & Music by Karen J Kamenetsky

Let’s go make some jelly doughnuts
Let’s go make some jelly doughnuts
Let’s go make some jelly doughnuts
Sufganiyot!

Take a piece of dough; put it in a pot, pot, pot, pot, pot
Make sure the oil is nice and hot, hot, hot, hot, hot, hot, hot, hot

(Chorus)

Now get some jelly, make sure it’s sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet
Put it in the doughnut, so I can eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat, eat

(Chorus)

On Hanukkah, we eat things that are fried in oil
To celebrate a miracle on Jerusalem’s soil
One tiny lamp that should have burned for just one day
Stayed lit a whole week long, and that is why I say
Let’s go make some
Let’s go make some

(Chorus)

Sufganiyot!
Sufganiyot!
