Round And Round Went The Gallant Ship

Source: Games For The Playground, Home, School And Gymnasium
Category: MISCELLANEOUS ACTIVE GAMES





_4 to 30 or more players._

_Indoors; out of doors._

This is a simple little game for very little children, consisting
simply in dancing around in a circle with clasped hands as the
following verse is recited, and "bobbing" down quickly as the ship
goes to the bottom of the sea


"Three times round went our gallant ship,
And three times round went she;
Three times round went our gallant ship,
Then she sank to the bottom of the sea."

A tumble as the ship goes down adds much to the spirit of the play.
