1. There’s a brown girl* in the ring, Tra-la-la-la-la.
There’s a brown girl in the ring, Tra-la-la-la-la-la,
Brown girl in the ring, Tra-la-la-la-la,
And she/he looks like the sugar in a plum, plum, plum.

2. Now show us your motion…

3. Now let’s skip across the ocean…

*Substitute “student” or a student’s name


It’s a fun song and game to help the students start out the school year: to get to know each others’ names and work together.
