"This is something about a little mouse running up your arm and you tickle your fingers up the arm like a mouse running up. My parents used to say this to me." -Sue

Hiiri juosta hipsutteli - Finnish Children's Songs - Finland - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


"The word 'hipsutteli' doesn't really make any sense translated, it's kind of like running with small steps and really fast. I don't know if scampered is even a word, I got it from Google translate when I put the word kipittää to it, which means it's almost the same as hipsutteli. Also the word 'kotipaikka' is a problem. It means home, but if you translate it straightly it's 'home place'." -Hilja
