Piiri pieni pyörii

Lyrics - Finnish

(Folk song from Finland)

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.

children buzz around,
Hands go clap clap clap,
shoe goes stomp stomp stomp.
