Draw A Bucket Of Water
This game is based upon the Nursery Rhyme Draw a Pail of Water
Draw a pail of water For my lady's daughter; My father's a king and my mother's a queen, My two little sisters are dressed in green; Stamping grass and parsley, Marigold leaves and daisies, One rush, two rush, Pray thee, fine lady, come under my bush.
Two children stand face to face, holding each other's hands. Two others also face each other holding hands across the other two. They seesaw backward and forward, singing the above lines.
When they come to the line, Pray thee, fine lady, come under my bush, another child pops under and comes up between one child's arms. They sing the verse again and another child creeps under another pair of arms, and so on until there are eight children standing facing each other. The must then jump up and down until one falls down, when she is almost sure to pull the others over.
