Dutch Shoe Song

I pass this shoe from me
to you, to you
I pass this shoe and do just what I do.
Everyone sits in a circle and removes one shoe which they place on
the floor in front of them. On each beat of the song (pass, shoe,
you, you, pass, shoe), pick up the shoe in front of you and plonk
it down in front of your neighbour - the sound of the shoe hitting
the floor should be on the beat.
This works until the end - at "do
just what I do" pick up the shoe in front of you and KEEP HOLD
OF IT. On the first "do" tap it on the floor to your right,
on "what" tap it on the floor to your left and on the final
"do" tap it to the right again.
Of course at the end
each person should be holding one shoe and there should be none left
over... but somehow it never seems to work that way.
