Roll over! Roll over!
So they all rolled over and one fell out.

Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy

Blind Man's Buff

Those who want to make a great noise
will have a chance now.
One player is taken into the middle of the room,
where a handkerchief is tied over his or her eyes.
He is then turned round three times
and told to catch whom he can.

The other players pass to and fro,
passing as near to him or her as they dare,
while the person who is blindfolded
rushes in all direction,
clutching at those who seem nearest.

When he or she succeeds in catching someone,
He or she must guess who it is,
and if correct, the boy or girl must change places.
If he or she cannot guess,
He or she must let go and try again.
