The one who shall be "it" is decided upon by counting out (see page
134), and he takes his place in the middle of the room. The others,
arm in arm, walk around him in couples, singing,

There was a jolly miller who lived by himself.
As the wheel went around he made his wealth;
One hand on the hopper and the other on the bag:
As the wheel went around he made his grab.

At "Grab," every one must change partners, and the one in the middle
tries to be quick enough to get one himself. If he does, the one left
alone must take his place in the middle and be the "Jolly Miller."
