Spread the love

Presenting Lyrics Of Skip To My Lou Lyrics is a Gaming Singing & Dance From The Age of 1840. The meaning of the word Lou, however, comes from the Scottish word for love, loo.



John A. and Alan Lomax wrote that “Skip to My Lou” was a simple game of stealing partners (or swapping partners as in square dancing). It begins with any number of couples skipping hand in hand around in a ring. A lone boy in the center of the moving circle of couples sings, “Lost my partner, what’ll I do?” as the girls whirl past him. The young man in the center hesitates while he decides which girl to choose, singing, “I’ll get another one just like you.” When he grasps the hand of his chosen one, the latter’s partner moves to the center of the ring. It is an ice-breaker, providing an opportunity for the participants to get acquainted with one another and to get into a good mood.

Little red wagon painted blue,
Little red wagon painted blue,

Off to Texas, two by two,
Off to Texas, two by two,
