This children's song was collected and translated by Arthur W. Moore in his book in 1896.


*"The number of verses depended on the ingenuity of the singers in remembering various colored petticoats. The girls when playing it kneel on the ground on one knee, and strike the other knee with their right hand as they say each word." -Notes from the original book
