A Little Girls Dance Song

Nyango wrote: "Another little girls' dancing game. They start off in a ring walking round and clapping and responding to the lead singer. Then at the chorus, they stand still, put both hands on their waists and shake it from side to side.

The song simply asks: What kind of soup is this that mother has prepared? There is not salt nor pepper in it. Tell her I won't eat it. 'Ayamba soup' then implies it is a tasteless soup."


*It actually implies, "What the heck kind of soup is this?"
