Giro giro tondo

Lyrics - Italian

(Italian folk song)

Giro giro tondo, gira il mondo,
gira la terra, tutti giù per terra!
Giro giro tondo, il mare è fondo,
tonda è la terra, tutti giù per terra!

Giro giro tondo, l’angelo è biondo,
biondo è il grano, tutti ci sediamo!
Giro giro tondo, ora ti circondo
come una ciambella, tutti giù per terra!

English Translation - Ring-a-ring o’ roses

Ring-a-ring o’ roses, ring around the world,
The earth is round, we all fall down!
Ring-a-ring o’ roses, the sea is deep,
The earth is round, we all fall down!

Ring-a-ring o’ roses, the angel has blond hair,
The wheat is yellow, we all sit down!
Ring-a-ring o’ roses, now I surround you
As a doughnut, we all fall down!
(source)

Movement

Children hold hands and walk in a circle. At the end, they fall down.
