Chorus:
Build it up, build it up
Build it up, build it up.
(repeat above).

Verse 1:Gonna build a sukkah
Build it up so high.
See the stars up in the sky
Swinging a hammer three walls and a door.
S’chach on the roof, for sure. Chorus

Verse 2: Seven days we’ll celebrate
Together in the sukkah we’ll decorate
Harvest fruits hanging every which way
So many blessings we have today. Chorus

Verse 3: Chag Ha’a-sif, won’t ya come on in?
We’ll have a meal together, now let’s begin
Zeman simkhateinu, let’s rejoice
Sing to God, now lift your voice. Chorus

Alternate third verse:
You’re invited, won’t you come on in?
We’ll have a meal together, now let’s be-gin
It’s the time for us to rejoice
Sing to God, now lift your voice. Chorus

Verse 4: Shake the lulav, shake it here and there
Shake it to show God is e-very-where
East, south, west, north, up and down
Shake it to show God is all a-round. Chorus

Verse 5:Ba-ruch A-tah A-do-nai E-lo-hay-nu
