Podul de piatră

Lyrics - Romanian

(Romanian folk song)

Podul de piatră s-a dărâmat
A venit apa şi l-a luat
Vom face altul pe riu, în jos
Altul mai trainic şi mai frumos!
Vom face altul pe riu, în jos
Altul mai trainic şi mai frumos!

Translation – The Stone Bridge

The stone bridge collapsed
The water came and took it
We’ll make another one down the river
Another more durable and beautiful!
We’ll make another one down the river
Another more durable and beautiful!

Game

Formation: Two students stand facing each other with arms up and hands touching, forming an arch (or bridge). The other students stand in a line, ready to walk under the bridge.

As the song is sung, the students walk under the bridge. At the end of the song, the students forming the bridge lower their arms and trap one student inside. The trapped student waits to the side while the song is sung again and someone else is trapped. Then those two students form another bridge right next to the first bridge, or they could replace the students forming the first bridge.
