[Second line retires, and first again advances singing:--

Mary Burton [or any other name] is the name,
so send her right away, away,

[Second line advances as first retires and sings:--

Johnny Smith [or any other name] will come to
fetch her, then begins the play.

The two children named then come out, and joining hands with the line
between them, try to pull each other over the line. If the child from
first line succeeds, then both children join that line, or vice versa,
and the game begins again.
