(This bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down.)

Este puente va a caer sobre éste(a).
(This bridge is falling down on this one.)

Sung to the tune of "London Bridge". Two children join hands and form an arch. The other children walk under the arch while singing. The two children bring there hands down on the last word, trapping the one child. That child then takes one person's place in forming the bridge.

*"Parate!" is used only in Mexico and some South American countries, but for a native of Spain, for example, it means "Stop!" So, a better expression would be "Levantate!" YS-D
