You can sing this to the tune of "Rig-a-Jig".


Instructions: "Mimic sound of wind as perfectly as possible. A little, prolonged whistle may be used, here and there, or by some of the children, to heighten effect. Speak 'For,' in first and second verses, and 'Oh' in third. Make 'whist' and 'list' full of meaning. Laugh as naturally as possible in last chorus."
