(Jamaican folk song)
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.
(Option: “For she likes sugar, and I like plums!”)
2. Now show us your motion…
3. Now let’s skip across the ocean…
