SCOTLAND'S BURNING

Source: Outdoor Sports and Games
Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES





This game is based upon the song of the same name. The players form a
ring, with three judges in the centre. Each player with appropriate
gestures in turn begins the song,

"_Scotland's burning. Scotland's burning,_
_Look out! Look out!_
_Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire!_
_Pour on water! Pour on water!_"

The whole party are soon singing, but each four are singing different
words. The object of the judges is to detect some one in the circle
either making gestures that are not appropriate to the words or to be
singing out of order. The penalty is to turn around and sing with the
back to the circle. The three who are facing in last then become
judges.
