The Needle's Eye

The needle's eye that doth supply
The thread that runs so true,
There's many a beau that I've letgo
Because I wanted you.
With a bow so neat and a kiss so sweet
We do intend before we end
To have this couple meet.

    A boy and a girl hold hands and let the others pass in a line under the arch. At the last line of the song they let down their hands and catch a boy or a girl from the line. If the one caught is a boy, he takes the place of the boy holding up hands; if a girl she takes the place of the girl. A boy is usually caught first.
