weepiper Child's Game: Elastics (152* d) RE: BS: Elastics 24 Apr 02

We had a similar rhyme for this game at primary school in East Lothian (Scotland) 15 or 20 years ago, except ours went "Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales, don't step on the monkeys' tails, England, Ireland, Scotland, France..." and I don't remember the next line...there was an 'Inside, outside, on!' bit too I think but I can't remember how it goes together. As for moves, the jumper would start to one side of the rubber bands and on the first word of the chant would jump both feet inside the bands, then on the next word jump both feet out the other side, and back the same way, then jump both feet inside on "don't", both feet outside (one on each side) on the "on", both inside on the "monkeys'" and finish both feet on the rubber bands on "tails".
