I Sell My Bat I Sell My Ball

Source: Games For All Occasions
Category: GAMES FOR CHILDREN





A ring is formed with one child in the middle, who is called the
"drummer-man." Whatever this child does the others mimic, moving round
as they do so, and singing the following words:--

"I sell my bat, I sell my ball,
I sell my spinning-wheel and all;
And I'll do all that e'er I can
To follow the eyes of the drummer-man."

Anyone who does not at once imitate the "drummer-man" must pay a forfeit
and take his place as "drummer-man."
