Charlie over the Water





This is an old game and is always popular. The children form a ring,

joining hands. One is selected to be "It" and takes his place in the

center. Those in the ring then dance around, singing,



"Charlie, over the water,

Charlie, over the sea,

Charlie, catch a blackbird,

But can't catch me."



Having completed these lines, they all assume a stooping position

before "Charlie," who is "It," can tag them. If he succeeds in tagging

one, that one takes his place in the circle and the game continues.
