Mulberry Bush- A circle, singing, game. The leader stood in the center of the circle and performed actions sung by the rest of the players. Here is one version heard around the Seventh Ward: "Here we go 'round the Mulberry bush, the Mulberry bush. Here we go 'round the Mulberry bush so early in the morning. This is the way we wash our clothes, wash our clothes, wash our clothes. This is the way we wash our clothes, so early in the morning." Other actions performed were: Dry our clothes, iron our clothes, shine our shoes, comb our hair, put on our clothes, put on our shoes, walk to school.
