Criss Cross Apple Sauce

I hear the phrase “Criss Cross Apple Sauce” here and there in American media. Especially from Gotham Chess. It isn’t a thing here in Australia.

Does anyone know the origin of the phrase?

  1. I live in the States and had never heard this so I looked it up on the net. It appears to be from a children’s song (there are many versions) getting them to sit cross legged.
