Nursury rhymes

I am looking for some nursury rhymes in Spanish.

I work at a day-care center and many of the little kids speak spanish, and since I took Spanish in college, it would be fun to try to sing to them in Spanish. So do you know any nursury rhymes or sings for little kids in Spanish?

Thanks.

PS. For now the words would be fine, and I'll figure out how to get the tune later.

Well, I know Lorca wrote a childrens' play called "La niña que riega la albahaca y el príncipe preguntón." I'm fairly sure it has some parts that are intended to be sung.

Wherever you see "Cantando" or "Cantan Juntos" ("singing", "singing together")
At the end:
Niña, niña que riegas la albahaca,
¿cuántas hojitas tiene la mata?
Niña, niña que riegas la albahaca,
¿cuántas hojitas tiene la mata?

More:
Tengo los ojos azules
y el corazoncito igual
que la cresta de la lumbre.
...
Con el vito, vito, vito,
con el vito, vito, va.
Yo no quiero que me miren,
que me pongo colorá.

There's not as much as I remember, but because it's short it may be more appropriate for young kids to learn. As for the tune I'm not sure. If only all the kids spoke spanish you could've acted the play for them!

I did some googling and these seem to be popular (thought I know nothing of spanish nursery rhymes). Google their names for the lyrics:

Al Juego Chirimbolo
Los Pollitos
Los Maderos de San Juan
Un Elefante Se Balanceaba
Cinco Pollitos
Naranja Dulce
Los Animalitos
Tengo, Tengo, Tengo

Thanks for the "nanas". I think nursery rhymes are really good for giving you cultural insight.

I think that they're songs from a Spanish TV programme for kids. When I read your post I remembered a couple of years ago my Spanish teacher played me the one that went "Mi mono Amedio y yo..." and had a look on the net for it. Not quite nursery rhymes but thought it was worth mentioning.

"marco: de los apeninos a los andes" and "Heidi" were two Japanese anime series who ran in public spanish television some decades ago.
Form "Marco", the opening song("En un pueblo italiano") and the mono Amedio song("Mi mono Amedio y yo") are well know for every Spaniard between 20 and 60).
Thanks for the link, it brings me happy memories.
