Stick Passing Song

Lyrics

(Lua folk song, East Africa)

Come children, come children come play as we pass the stick
Dan dah ran do (Dan dah ran do)
Dan dah ran do (Dan dah ran do)
Dan dah ran do (Dan dah ran do)
Dan dah ran do (Dan dah ran do)

Game

Students sit in a circle. On the steady beat (twice per measure), students pass sticks (or bean bags or stones) to the right. On the “off beat,” students pick up the stick that was placed in front of them.
