Lyrics

Piiri pieni pyörii
Lapset siinä hyöri.
Sormet sanoo soo soo soo,
Kengät sanoo koo koo koo.

Piiri pieni pyörii,
Lapset siinä hyörii.
Kädet sanoo lip, lap, lap,
Kengän kärjet kip, kap, kap.

Translation – The Small Circle Turns

1. The small circle turns,
children buzz around,
Fingers say so so so,
shoe goes tap tap tap.

2. The small circle turns,
children buzz around,
Hands go clap clap clap,
shoe goes stomp stomp stomp.
