A Singing Game for Thinking Day


This was from an old "News and Views" (our area newsletter), and there is no credit given to anyone for this wonderful song/game. We sang this at our Thinking Day rally a few years ago and everyone joined the Brownies in playing it.

Tune:  Mulberry Bush

1.  Here we go round and round the world,
     Round the world, round the world.
     Here we go round and round the world,
     To visit all the Brownies.
(Action while singing - skipping)

2.  England is where the Brownies began,
     Brownies began, Brownies began,
     England is where the Brownies began,
     According to the Founder's plan.
(Skip)

3.  In Holland the Brownies all wear clogs,
     All wear clogs, all wear clogs,
     In Holland the Brownies all wear clogs,
     And clomp around in jigs and jogs.
(Heel out - touch foot each time)

4.  Each Brownie in India is called a bulbul,
     Called a bulbul, called a bulbul,
     Each Brownie in India is called a bulbul,
     She might wear a sari which looks nice and cool.
(Flap arms)  ( a bulbul is a brightly coloured cheerful bird in India.)

5.  In Australia the Brownies see kangaroos
     See kangaroos, see kangaroos,
     In Australia the Brownies see kangaroos,
     Hoppity, skippety, jump!
(Hop like kangaroos)

6.  Japanese Brownies all have fans,
     All have fans, all have fans,
     Japanese Brownies all have fans,
     And wave them gently with their hands.
(Pretend to have a fan and fan yourself)

7.  When German Brownies wave good-bye,
     Wave good-bye, wave good-bye,
     When German Brownies wave good-bye,
     They say "Auf Wiedersehen".
(Wave good-bye)

8.  In every land they lend a hand,
     Lend a hand, Lend a hand,
     In every land they lend a hand,
     That's the Brownie motto
(Make Brownie sign)
