(Folk song)

All around the buttercup, one two three.
If you want a pretty girl (handsome boy)* just choose me.

*Option: “If you want to find a friend, just choose me.”


Students stand in a circle, singing song. One student is “It” and weaves in and out of the circle until the word “me.” The person “It” is standing next to becomes the new “It.” Another version, is “It” joins hands with the new “It” and keeps weaving in and out, gathering more people to join them. Each new person that joins could be at the front of the line so different students get a chance to lead.
