C'e Una Cocca Nera


C’é una coc ca nera? No, no, no!
Tre volte vado ingiro, tre volte non la trovo.
Tu sei bella, tu sei bella, tu sei la più bella!


Where is a black hen?
No, no, no!
I go three times around,
Three times, cannot find it.
(looking at another hen)
You’re beautiful, you’re beautiful,
You’re the most beautiful!


  • Students sit in circle.
  • One student is “it,” and walks around the circle while students sing.
  • Student points to one student as students sing the last phrase
  • That student gets up and follows the student who is “it”
  • Play continues until there are more and more students following “it.”
  • When one student is left in the circle, that person becomes the new “it.”

  1. Hello! I’m a band and orchestra director in Maryland. Thought I’d let you know that I love your blog, it’s been a really great resource for me with a summer camp I taught last year (and will be teaching again this year). I added you to my list of blogs on my own blog. If you have some time I’d love if you checked it out! Thanks so much for this resource!
