La Raspa
(Tu máquina de coser)
Dominio publico


This song is available on Susan Peña's Favorites: Songs in Spanish and English.   


This song has a two-part dance that goes along with it. Following the lyrics, which are
in boldface type, you will find a description of the steps that go along with the singing
and instrumental parts.
     The dance can be danced by individuals or in couples. Boys cross arms in front of their chests
and girls put their hands on their waists, or hold out their skirts (if they are wearing skirts). Members 
of couples start out facing each other.

Tu má
(Dancer hops up and extends right foot out in front on the 
floor on the syllable “má”, then claps twice in time to the music).
tu má
(dancer switches feet so that left foot is in front,
on the floor, claps twice)
tu máquina de coser.
(switch feet again, right foot in front, clap, clap)

La tu
(switch feet, clap, clap)
la tu
(switch feet, clap, clap)
la tuya es de tejer.
(switch feet, clap, clap).

Part Two starts with the change in the music.
     If danced in a couple, couples face each other and link elbows (right elbow to right
elbow), and wheel around, switching elbows and reversing direction either at the end of
each two lines or at the end of the four-line verse.
     If dancing alone, dancers can either just maintain their position (arms crossed or hands on
hips) or waive their right index fingers in the air as they turn in place, reversing direction
as described above.

Ay, mamá, no voy pa’ la escuela, 
Porque tengo dolor de muela, 
Ay, papá, no voy pa’ salón 
Porque tengo sarampión.

Ay, mamá, no voy pa’ la escuela, 
Porque tengo dolor de muela, 
Ay, papá, no voy pa’ salón 
Porque tengo sarampión.
