THE BIG RECESS 

Come come here everybody
And we’ll sing in a choir
You also sing with us
The big recess…

How good and how fantastic
In the big recess
How good and how fantastic
In the big recess…

Games on a long horse
In the big recess
Don’t step on the grass
In the big recess
One, two, three
Take a ball on the head (a “header”)
And be a bit “tra la la”
In the big recess…

Chorus…

Cain doesn’t like Abel
The boys jump the [skipping] rope
Cain doesn’t like Abel
The girls fall in the water
The girls jump the [skipping] rope
And the guys to the rubbish bin

Ruti’s getting a bit confused
In the big recess
She didn’t eat her sandwich
In the big recess
She lifts up the paper
And ate the pencil case
She’s simply confused
In the big recess

Chorus…

Dudu the fat boy
He has a son in his stomach
What’s the son called?
Dudu the fat boy…

A blue shirt and she goes up
In the big recess
A car steps on an ant
In the big recess
Mr Kopiko runs to the market
And brings back half a bottle
And he swallows the half
In the big recess

Chorus…

Dad hugs mum
The children yell: “come on!”
At night, at night, the stars come out
Dudu and Didi are kissing
Whoever doesn’t believe me
Will come in a few years
And will see them married

Yossi runs to the basketball (court)
In the big recess
Listen to what he ate
In the big recess
He threw the sausage [away]
And ate the little bag
With its plastic
In the big recess

Chorus...
