"This is one of the most favorite clapping games played amongst young girls during their free time. Children are seen playing it almost everywhere at all times. The game is a recital and is played between two (at times three+) players facing each other and singing and clapping in a rhythmic pattern. The words and the clapping sequence vary from place to place. In this game, all participants are equally active at all times." -Dsource

The text is said very quickly. Most of it seems to be nonsense. If anyone knows of any meaning to this rhyme, please email me. Thanks! -Mama Lisa
