Old Hungarian Round
This is a fun round to sing and is especailly liked by my elementary school students. I first learned the tune with these words from an old Girl Scout song book.
Several years ago I was reintroduced to it at my Kodaly music training and learned that the Hungarian words were very different.
If you have lots of people, try it as a round with the formation for the dance being concentric circles. The inner circle starts. The next circle starts after the first group sings "If you dance then". I have done it with three circles. It makes a really cool pattern. Thanks to Georgia Newlin for this great idea.
