TURGELI TIVELI (LITTLE GEORGE)

ONE PLAYER IS "LITTLE GEORGE," EVERYONE ELSE--GO
AROUND IN A CIRCLE AND SING. IN THE SECOND PART,
"GEORGE" COMPLETES SOME MOVEMENT AND EVERYONE
SINGING, DOES THE SAME. REPEATING THE WORDS, "JUS
VAIKAI TAIP DARY-KIT, KAIP TIVELIS DARO," ALL
THE CHILDREN DO THE SAME MOTION. NEXT, ANOTHER
CHILD GOES INTO THE MIDDLE.

Submitter comment: "YOU CHILDREN, DO THE SAME THING THAT LITTLE GEORGE
IS DOING." (LITERAL TRANSLATION).
THIS IS SIMILAR TO FOLLOW THE LEADER, ONLY WE GO
AROUND IN A CIRCLE AND SING.
A VERY GOOD GAME FOR LITTLE KIDS, AGAIN NO ONE
KNOWS WHO WROTE IT.

Where learned: LITHUANIA
