I've change your translation a little bit - matches well with the rhythm of the Polish version, the few last lines. I did it to teach my children this fun game:

"That was going
much too far,
couldn't stop and it POP!"

I hope this will be helpful.
Thank you for your beautiful website.

Game Instructions

The children are standing in a circle - they first make a small circle and let the circle get wider and wider: the balloon is growing and growing and POP – the children fall down.
