:: Recording Notes ::
0 - This is a song in which singers are in a circle - perhaps 50 or 60 people - they gather in a meadow - the circle always moves. The circle moves from right to left - with the sun. It is a love song. The girl is sitting inside and the young man wants her to come out and walk with him but her mother will not let her. The singer sings and forgets about everything.
