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.
