Game Instructions

Here's how this game is explained in "The Games & Diversions of Argyleshire":

"The players arranged themselves in two rows, standing opposite each other. Each individual clapped her hands together, then raising the right hand open, strikes the open right hand of the girl opposite her; each again strikes her two palms together, and then the left hands meet. This is repeated in time to the rhyme, which marks it as a Low Country game." -
