_6 to 30 or more players._
_Indoors; out of doors._
The players stand in a circle, with one or more in the center. The
circle dances around and sings the first two lines of the following
verse. They then stand still while the player or players in the center
choose each a partner who enters the circle with him; they clasp hands
and dance around, singing the last two lines
Oh, have you seen the muffin man, the muffin man, the muffin man?
Oh, have you seen the muffin man that lives in Drury Lane, O!
Oh, yes, I've seen the muffin man, the muffin man, the muffin man,
Oh, yes, I've seen the muffin man that lives in Drury Lane, O!
Miss Newton has a very good adaptation of this game for the
schoolroom or parlor, in which four or five players stand in
corners. Each of these chooses a partner at the end of the
second line, and these groups of two dance in a circle.
