Blind man's buff
Language: English 
Ah! catch me, if you can!
Catch me, catch me, catch me,
If you can!
Was there ever such a game 
As "Blind man's buff?"
No, there never was a game 
Like "Blind man's buff."
Our fathers and our mothers played before us,
Our grandfathers and grandmothers before us,
And I verily believe
That the chicks of mother Eve
Played the self-same game,
Played it just the same!
Ah! catch me, if you can!
Catch me, catch me, catch me,
If you can!
