I'm a thousand-legged worm


All the girls except one form a circle, with the one remaining girl in the centre. As the verse is sung, the circle moves round in one direction and the lone girl in the other. When they reach the chorus, both the circle and the single girl stop, and she faces whoever she is opposite and they BOTH hop on one leg while they (and everyone else) sing the chorus. Then the girl who was selected joins the first girl in the centre and everyone carries on singing, moving round in opposite directions. At the end of the repeat, BOTH girls choose someone to hop in front of, and the song carries on thus, the inner circle increasing and the outer decreasing until everyone is hopping! (Try it, it's fun!)

I'm a thousand-legged worm and I've lost a leg
Has anyone seen that leg of mine?
If it can't be found I will have to hop around
On the other nine-hundred-and-ninety-nine

(Chorus)Ninety Nine! Ninety Nine!
On the other nine-hundred-and-ninety-nine!
If it can't be found I will have to hop around
On the other nine-hundred-and-ninety-nine!

(Repeat until everyone has joined in the hopping)
