Thread Name: Playground revisited - actions?
Subject: Playground revisited - actions?
I have been researching Children's singing games and have asked questions with reference to this before. I have found a lot of info from old threads also, but I now ask if anyone knows the movements or actions to the following:
King William Was King David's son
Cock Robin is dead and lays in his grave
There came 3 gypsies riding
The Roman Soildiers or The Irish Soldiers
There were 3 Jolly Sailor boys
Mrs Macaroni
Poor Mary Sat a-weeping
Hop Hop Hop

I have words and tunes and some movements for some, some are not how I rememeber and realise that like songs, these will vary with region and if they have crossed the pond. I look forward to whatever info anyone can give me, Thanks,
