Liner Notes: 

This is a little bit of a cheat, but it's also teacher survival mode. This is a folk song, and I've looked extensively. As far as I can tell it is public domain. In the few places I've found it online it has been listed as a Japanese folk song. I find that provenance a little suspect because I can't find any YouTube videos of Japanese children singing it other than a really weird one where it starts off as Se Se Se and turns into Yankee Doodle. There's a good chance that some American made it up and called it Japanese, but still probably public domain. It's a Rock Paper Scissor game and all my students LOVE it, but because I can't sing in class this year, and because there are no good recordings of it, I've done this. Now with distancing we can play the game and they can hear the song. I need to tweak the vocal EQ, but it's just about ready for school.

The lyrics are nonsense. They don't actually mean anything in Japanese.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
