Country: The Koreas
Language: Korean

This chant appears one on “Roots and Branches: A Legacy of Multicultural Music for Children.”

The hand motions that accompany this Korean kids’ song are very much like rock/paper/scissors.

[wpspoiler name=”Original lyrics” style=”aatw-other” open=”true”]Achim baram chan baram ae
Ulgo ganun jau girogi
Uri sung-seng ge shil jogae
Yupso hanjang so juseyo
Hahjan malgo doo janiyo
Goori goori goori goori Gawee bawee bo
Cold morning wind
Seagull crying in the morning
While our teachers are stayng here
Write him/her a postcard
Not one but two postcards
Rolling rolling rolling, rolling
Rock, scissors, paper![/wpspoiler]
[wpspoiler name=”Lyrics of All Around This World version” open=”true” style=”aatw-other”]Sei sei sei
Outside in the cold morning wind
Seagulls stand on top of a rock
Teacher, how I you wish you were here!
Put a postcard into the mail
Scissors cut the postcard in half
Goori goori goori goori gawee bawee bo
Achim baram chan baram ae
Seagulls stand on top of a rock
Teacher, how I you wish you were here!
Put a postcard into the mail
Scissors cut the postcard in half
Goori goori goori goori gawee bawee bo[/wpspoiler]
