Körö Kirkkoon - Finnish Children's Songs - Finland - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


Raija Davis wrote me in July 2004, "The nursery rhyme under 'Finnish' on your site has a word wrong. As you notice perhaps, typically old rhymes in Finnish have (all the) words in a line beginning with the same letter or the same sound.

The line containing 'mustalla ruunalla' should read 'ruskealla ruunalla' (ruskea means brown)."

Please let us know if you think this video has been taken down by YouTube.

Thanks and Acknowledgements

Many thanks to Mirja Covarrubias at the Consulate General of Finland for contributing this song and to Raija Davis for writing me about the line "ruskealla ruunalla".

Kiitoksia oikein paljon!
