Game Instructions

This is played as a round with a child in the middle of the circle. The children hold hands and walk around while singing the first verse. The child in the middle runs in the middle of the circle, then he chooses a child pointing his/her finger at him/her while singing "Con éste/a sí", then he points to another one singing "Con éste/a no", then points to the first one again saying "Con esta señorita/este señorito me caso yo". They hold hands and dance in the circle. The first child joins the outer circle and the second runs into the middle of the circle and choses a new child, and the game continues until all the people in the circle are "married".


Translation by Mama Lisa.
