This is a circle game, so the first line is like singing "Ring Around the Rosie".

Game Instructions

The children form a circle holding hands and one child goes in the middle. When that child calls another kid by name (putting it in the song on the last line), that child who was called turns with their back towards the inner circle. They keep going around until all the children have their backs turned. Then, the song is done over again until all the children are facing the inner circle again.
