Submitter comment: THERE ARE A GROUP OF CHILDREN SKIPPING UNDER TWO PEOPLE,S ARMS, WHEN
THE SONG ENDS, IF YOU ARE CAUGHT BETWEEN THEIR ARMS, YOU ARE
SHAKEN FROM SIDE TO SIDE, AND YOU PICK THE PERSON'S SIDE YOU WANT
TO BE ON. WHEN ALL THE CHILDREN HAVE BEEN SHAKEN FROM SIDE TO SIDE
YOU HAVE A PULLING GAME. WHENEVER THE PERSON WHO IS FIRST IS
PULLED OVER THE MARKED LINE BETWEEN THE TWO GROUPS HE GOES TO THE
OPPOSITE SIDE. THIS CONTINUES UNTIL EVERYONE IS ON ONE SIDE.
THE SIDE THAT HAS EVERYONE ON IT, WINS THE GAME.
