Lyrics: 'Spin that coin'

1 Spin that coin and flip it over,
Is it heads or is it tails?
Take it to the marketplace
And change your coin for goods on sale.
Emperors, they come and go,
But trade and people carry on,
Spin that coin and flip it over,
On and on and on...

Instrumental verse for marketplace actions

2 Roll that dice and count the numbers,
One, two, three, four, five or six?
Fly a kite, throw knuckle-bones,
And play with dolls and hoops and sticks.
Model chariots, rolling marbles,
Toys and games they carry on,
Roll that dice and count the numbers,
On and on and on...

Instrumental verse for toy and game actions

3 Sing the songs and dance the dances,
Blow the flutes and twang the lyre,
Step in time with tambourines,
Then stamp the ground, then reach up higher.
Castanets and finger-cymbals,
Dance and music carry on,
Sing the songs and dance the dances,
On and on and on...

Instrumental verse for musical instrument actions

Spin that coin...
Roll that dice...
Dance and music...
Spin that coin...
