This is a call and response chant game. The directions to play the game are in the Game Instructions below.

Game Instructions

The kids go in a circle and one goes in the middle of the ring (the "Lead" singer). They all chant this song while the one in the middle chants the "Lead" part. Meanwhile, the kids in the circle pass a small object around behind their backs. At the end of the game the one in the middle has to guess who has the object. After the "Lead" finds the hidden object, another child gets into the ring and starts the game anew.



Many thanks to Nyango M. Nambangi of the Minnesota African Women's Association for contributing this song and for singing it.

The second recording includes Nyango's explanation of the game.
