You can build it very small,

You can build it very tall,

You can build it very large,

You can build it on a barge.


You can build it on a ship

Or on a roof, but please don’t slip;

You can build it in an alley,

You can build it in a valley.


You can build it on a wagon,

You can build it on a dragon,

You can make the s’chach of wood;

Would you, could you, yes you should.


Make the s’chach from leaves of tree;

You shouldn’t bend it at the knee. 

Build your sukkah tall or short,

No sukkah is built in the Temple Court.


You can build it somewhat soon,

You cannot build it in the month of June;

If your sukkah is well-made,

You’ll have the right amount of shade.


You can build it very wide,

You cannot build it on its side;

Build if your name is Jim,

Or Bob or Sam or even Tim.


Build it if your name is Sue,

Do you build it, yes you do!

From the sukkah you can roam,

But you should treat it as your home.


You can invite some special guests,

Don’t stay in it if there are pests;

You can sleep upon some rugs,

Don’t you build it where there’s bugs.


In the sukkah you should sit

And eat and drink but never spit;

If in the sukkah it should rain,

To stay there would be such a pain.


And if it should be very cold,

Stay there only if you’re bold;

So build a sukkah one and all,

Make it large or make it small.


Sukkah rules are short and snappy;

Enjoy Sukkos, rejoice be happy.
