Game Instructions

The girls sit in a circle. While singing this song, each girl passes her foot over the foot of her neighbor... sometimes within the circle sometimes on the outside. At the end of the verse, if the girl's leg is on the outside of the circle, they say she fell in the river and she has to sit in the middle of the circle. The game continues.
