First verse:

  • Stand in a circle facing to the left with hands on hips.
  • First line: Walk in the circle around to the left with a little svikt (spring) in your step
  • Second line: Keep walking making ears on your head with your hands when you say “ej ören” (no ears), and make a tail with both hands when you say “ej svansar” (no tails).
  • Third line: Put hands on hips and hop big like a frog—not too quickly—on each beat.


Second verse:

  • First line: Walk in the circle around to the left with a little svikt (spring) in your step
  • Second line: Keep walking making ears on your head with your hands when you say “båd ören” (both ears), and make a curly tail when you say “och svansar” (and tails).
  • ​Third line: Put the back of one hand up by your mouth and nose and flick the fingers forward like a nose rooting in the ground. Try and flick the fingers at the person in the circle in front of you. Keep your curly tail behind you with your other hand if you can.
