Rise Sugar Rise

Lyrics

Going round the mountain, two by two,
Going round the mountain, two by two,
Going round the mountain, two by two,
Rise sugar* rise.

Show us a motion, two by two,
Show us a motion, two by two,
Show us a motion, two by two,
Rise sugar rise.

That’s a nice motion, two by two,
That’s a nice motion, two by two,
That’s a nice motion, two by two,
Rise sugar rise.

*”Sugar” can be a term of endearment (source).
