Dhe Dhe!


A Southern Indian song found on the Smithsonian Folkways Folk Music of India (and known there as “Tamil Folk Song.”) In class we use this to sing about our kids’ clothes, especially if they come adorned with spaceships, unicorns and bunnies.

Translation of original version

Llullaby singing with coral colored lips
Wearing the best ornaments best ornaments
With the pomp wealth filled
With the good and heavy
Spreading the leaves

All Around This World’s version:

Ta la la la la la na (2x)
Molly’s wearing blue pants, blue pants, Molly has her blue pants on, DHE DHE!
