Somebody Waiting

Lyrics

(Folk song)

1. As I looked into your eyes,
I beheld a glad surprise
That there’s somebody waiting for me.

Refrain
There is somebody waiting,
There is somebody waiting,
There is somebody waiting for me.

2. Now choose two, leave the others,
Now choose two, leave the others,
Now choose two, leave the others for me. Refrain

3. Swing the one, leave the other,
Swing the one, leave the other,
Swing the one, leave the other for me. Refrain

Movement

Formation: Students stand in a circle with hands joined. Three or four extra players are “It,” standing in the center.

Verse 1 – Students circle left. “It” students each grab 2 partners.
Verse 2 – Each “It” swings one partner and leaves the other standing still.
Verse 3 – Partners who have swung join the circle again, and the other people who were standing still become the new “It” players.
