Notes

Alternate version of the 2nd line: "San Serafín, cordero" (Saint Seraphim, lamb)

Game Instructions

The children choose a leader and stand in a circle. They sing clapping their hands and follow the leader's instructions according to what s/he says.

Comments

The children can add as many verses as they wish, only the last line changes. Here are some possible last lines:

Yo me pararé (I will stop)

Yo saludaré (I will bow)

Yo me reiré (I will laugh)

Yo me rascaré (I will scratch)
