Subject: RE: Gigalo & other children's rhymes &cheers
Yes, Azizi - they stand still while singing the rhyme. I agree with you, the meanings of the words in a rhyme are of little importance to children.

There's another one that my daughter used to do that is more complicated and is in what may or may not be a real foreign language that I don't recognize. (On don daya, see see alaya - that is part of it). I'll be able to post that one here in a week or so, when I have the chance to ask her.
