The lyrics are in English. English is the official language of Nigeria even though over 500 languages are spoken there.
You can find most of the lyrics below the video.
To play: Each kid is given a number in order starting with one. Then they sing the verse below and the kid who’s “Number One” goes in the center of the circle and dances.
Number One come inside
Come and show me your disco dance.
(Missing this part of the lyrics)
Then repeat the same verse with “Number Two come inside…” Then “Number Three come inside” and so on.
To play: The kid whose name is called goes to the center of the circle and dances.
If I call your name, you come and dance!
If I call your name will you come and dance?
(Name) come and dance,
Dance your mama dance,
Dance your papa dance.
Dee, dee, dee, dee
Dee do sa de da.
(I’m not sure if the last two lines are correct.)
