Sarasponda


Info

This is a fun song which has a strong sense of beat. I have heard it was sung to the beat of a spinning wheel.


Lyrics

Sarasponda, sarasponda, sarasponda ret set set. (repeat)

A doh ray oh, a doh ray boom day oh,
A doh ray boom day ret set set,
Ah say pasay oh.

  1. This is a fun one, it’s a Dutch Spinning Song. There are some fun movements that go with it too: Mary Alice Amidon has them written out in her new book “I’m Growing Up”
    Love your blog!

  2. What program do you use to write out the parts? I’m having a class do a composition project, and I am looking for a way to write it all out. I’ve used Noteflight in the past, but I’d love to know what you use. Thanks!

    1. Shelley, I use Sibelius. My school bought Sibelius for a the four computers in my classroom. I love Sibelius! I’m going to blog about it one of these days.

    2. Silebius is awesome, isn’t it?!! Have you done flashcards with it yet? I haven’t had time to work on that yet (I have a 5 year old and a 2 year old). If so, please let me know how long it takes. 🙂
