Little Sally Walker
(American Circle Game)


If a boy plays you can sing "Willy Wally Walker".

Little Sally Walker
Circle Game

Little Sally Walker
Walking down the street.
She didn't know what to do
So she stopped in front of me.
She said, "Hey girl, do your thing,
Do your thing and switch!
Hey girl do your thing
Do your thing and switch!"

I received this version recently (2010):

From 70 plus years ago...

Little Sally Water sitting in the sun
Crying and weeping for someone to come
Rise up, Sally, and wipe away your tears
Turn to the East, and turn to the West (and)
Turn to the one that you love best

Game Instructions

All the kids stand in the circle singing the song. "Little Sally Walker" walks around inside the circle. When the song gets to, "She didn't know what to do so she stopped in front of me" the one playing Sally Walker stands in front of someone and does a dance move.

The kids continue singing, "Hey girl, do that thing do your thing and switch!" Then the person who was picked switches places with the one who was in the middle of the circle. The new "Sally Walker" now does the dance move. Meanwhile everyone sings the 2nd, "Hey girl do that thing do your thing and switch!"

The new person who's "Little Sally Walker" walks around the inside of the circle and continues the game.
