Ritsch Ratsch Filibom Bom Bom (Swedish Folk Song)


This Swedish folk song is often sung as a game while dancing around a Christmas tree or Maypole. Arranged for late beginner level, the cheerful melody is supported by lyrics that, when translated, paint an image of a bunch of schoolchildren pressuring their teacher for some sodawater punch. This lively, bouncy piece is filled with staccatos and lifts and is perfect for any late beginner pianist who likes to play FAST!

An approximate English translation is included for your enjoyment.
