Molly Brooks.
Miss Alice Delay, Brown Tp.
a.            1. Molly Brooks is gone (to) the isle,
Gone (to) the isle, gone (to) the isle, Molly Brooks is gone (to) the isle, 2. And I hope she'll never return, And I hope she'll never return. And I hope she'll never return. Molly Brooks is gone (to) the isle. And I hope she'll never return.
b.     Girls join hands to form a circle. Boys do the same, forming a circle immediately outside that of the girls, i. e., each boy is at the left of, and a step behind his partner. Girls circle to the left in this position, while boys remain standing during 1. After one entire circuit girls return to original position.
At 2, the girls with their hands still clasped throw their arms over the heads of the boys and around them. Thus the boys, though still on the outside and making the larger circle, are en­closed by that made by the girls' arms (i. e., make basket). Repeat from the beginning with the girls outside, the boys inside.
