A la rueda, rueda


A la rueda, rueda de pan y canela,
Dáme un besito y vete pa’ la escuela,
Y si no quieres ir, ¡acuéstate a dormir!
En la hierbabuena y en el toronjil.
To the ring, to the ring of cinnamon bread,
Kiss me goodbye and go on to school.
And if you don’t want to go, then back to sleep,
in the mint and lemon balm pads!
