Buff says Buff to all his men,|
And I say Buff to you again;
Buff neither laughs nor smiles,
But carries his face,
With a very good grace,
And passes the stick to the very next place.
An old forfeits game. The players sit in a circle, and one by one, taking a stick, point it at their neighbour repeating the rhyme solemnly. The player pointed at then becomes the one who points, and so on. Anyone who laughs or smiles must pay a forfeit.|
