I am almost certain this is not a Dutch song. I believe this is what is called a "spinning song" made up of nonsense words to sing while doing work. This is what I have learned about it, and it seems to make more sense than of an actual language. However, I am not an authority on the matter.

I am wondering about this song, what language is this? and what does it mean? found this song in a book and it says "Dutch Folk Song" and yet as I asked to Dutch friends of mine (many of them) and yet they don't know the song and also don'tknow the meaning. I am a teacher for preschool and we will perform with this song...
: Can you help please? thank you!
