¿Dónde Están las Llaves? Printable Lyrics – PDF

“¿Dónde Están las Llaves?” is a typical song to sing in a circle or as you jump the rope. Although it is believed to be very old and that it comes from France, it is one of the best-known children’s play songs in Spain. Although depending on the area it may be more or less known, the truth is that this song is sung in all Spanish-speaking countries, with small variations. It is very interesting for the younger kids because they can memorize, sing and interact with it.

Its “matarile, rile, rile” chorus is very catch, although we do not know what it means. Curiously, students of folklore and Spanish children’s songs suggest that it comes from the Andalusian Arabic “ma tarí li, ríli, ríli” which would mean something like “what you are going to guess, guess it”.
