b. One girl sits on a chair in the center of the room while one couple promenades around her during the singing of 1. At 2, she whispers to this couple the name of the boy whom she chooses to be her partner. The couple in the center sing 3, supplying the name of the boy chosen. All join in singing 4. At 5, the girl who has occupied the chair gets up, and the boy whom she has named takes her place in the chair. She joins hands with the couple and the three circle left around the boy.
Repeat from the beginning with the boy in the chair. At 2, he gives to the three the name of the girl whom he chooses. At 5, he joins the three in the circle.
Continue repeating until all of the players are on the floor.
