This is a children's game, but it's also played at weddings.

Notes

Here's a slightly different version:

Mam chusteczkę haftowaną
Co ma cztery rogi
Kogo kocham, kogo lubię
Rzucę mu pod nogi.
Tego kocham
Tego lubię
Tego pocałuję
A chusteczkę haftowaną
Tobie podaruję.

Translation:

I have an embroidered handkerchief
That has four corners
To the one I love, to the one I like,
I'll throw it at his feet.
You I love,
You I like,
You I'll kiss,
An embroidered handkerchief
I'll give to you.

Game Instructions

There are two versions of this game:

Game 1: The kids sit in a circle and sing the song. (They can go around in a circle instead of sitting.) One kid goes in the middle with a handkerchief. At the end of the verse, the one in the middle puts the handkerchief down in front of another person, who kneels on it. Then s/he kisses that person on the cheeks. Then that new person goes in the middle with the handkerchief and the game starts all over again.

Game 2: Everyone sits in a circle except for one person who holds a handkerchief. That person goes around the outside of the circle while everyone sings the song. At the end of the song, that person drops the handkerchief behind another person and then runs around the circle to take that person's spot. The person who picks up the handkerchief has to chase the one who dropped it. If she catches the person before they reach her spot that person is "It" again. Otherwise, the new person who has the handkerchief goes around the circle and the game starts all over again.

In the wedding version of this game - in the video below - everyone sings the verse and goes around in a circle. The person with the handkerchief puts the handkerchief on the floor in the front of the person they want to dance with - that person kneels on it. The one with the handkerchief kneels too and both kiss cheeks on each side. Then they dance together while the rest go around them in a circle. When the verse ends, the person who was asked to dance takes the handkerchief and asks a new person to dance in the same way, by putting the handkerchief down in front of a new person. The game goes on this way. In the video a couple of people have handkerchiefs. Several couples dance in the middle at the same time.
