Wee Willie Winkie


Wee Willie Winkie, run through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown.
Rapping at the windows, Crying through the locks,
“Are the children in their beds? It is eighth o’clock!”


All students stand in a circle, holding hands high. One student (“It”) is named as “Wee Willie Winkie” and runs in between students through their “windows”. On the last word of song, whomever “It” is closest to becomes next Wee Willie Winkie.
