"Aserrín" is sawdust, and "aserrín aserrán" is an onomatopoeic form to imitate the sound of the saw.

Game Instructions

The way to play "Aserrín, aserrán" is : while the child "rides" the adult's knees, the adult holds the child's hands and makes a push and pull saw movement.


Rossi's grandma used to sing it.
