While madly preparing for class at the Waldorf School one morning, Hannah flipped through the Handy Play Party Book and found this gem. You can also use the name of the top girl and you can repeat it with the boys line leading off to the left.
5 and older
formation :4 -5 couples facing each other in long lines (contra) ‘girls’ line on right when facing the top of the room.
4 times through

Lyrics

1. The top dancer in the girls line turns to the right and dances to the bottom of the set and back up behind the boys line to her place.
Where oh where is sweet little Nellie
Where oh where is sweet little Nellie
Where oh where is sweet little Nellie
Way down yonder in the Paw paw patch.

2. The same girl leads down again followed by the top boy and all the boys follow.
Come on boys and let’s go find her
Come on boys and let’s go find her,
Come on boys and let’s go find her,
Way down yonder in the Paw paw patch.

3. All join hands with partners and the top couple leads everyone off to the right and down to the bottom and back up to the top. Top couple then goes to the bottom and a new top girl starts the dance .
Picking up the paw paws put them in your pocket
Picking up the paw paws put them in your pocket,
Picking up the paw paws put them in your pocket,
Way down yonder in the Paw paw patch.
