Amanda wrote looking for help with a song:
“Hi! I need help! I’m not sure of the origin of this song. My aunt said maybe it’s Dutch or German. It has been passed down many years from family elders. I now have my own children and have often caught myself singing the same song/game to them. But have no idea where it comes from or what it means!
This is all spelled phonetically and I’m hoping someone is able to help!
My grandmother used to take our palms and slowly rub her palm down ours with each word. It sounds like:
‘Dala, mala, kesha, kelpsha, svencha.’
Then she would make a high pitched voice and say ‘giddy, giddy, giddy’ or ‘teep, teep, teep’ and tickle us. It is driving me crazy!
I’m hoping someone can help me, thank you!”
If anyone can help with this song, please let us know in the comments below.
Thanks in advance!
