The children stand behind each other in couples at one end of the
playground, ready to dance off when the song begins. They start from
point '=b=,' and each holds his partner's hand until the other end of
the playground is reached, point '=a=,' then the hands are dropped; one
goes to the left (following direction of arrow '=c='), the other to the
right (arrow '=d='), and they meet again at the starting point '=b=,'
where they join hands and repeat the movement.
The following is sung to the tune of 'Weel may the Keel Row.'
Who'll go a-hunting, a-hunting, a-hunting,
Oh! who'll go a-hunting this merry, merry day?
We'll catch the sly old fox--O,
Safe in a box--O,
Then who'll go a-hunting this merry, merry day?
