Wrap a gift and set it into view. Tell your guests that as you read the verses, if it describes them, they are to be the first to grab the gift.
There may be 1 or many who go for the gift but whoever grabs it first returns to their seat and sets the gift on the table in front of them, if they are seated at tables, or in their lap if they are not. Then you continue on to the next verse. The person who loses the gift, is still in the game with the next verse.
The news is out, quick send a cable. The gift starts with the lady at the table.
If someone wears clothing with the color of blue, be ready because she will take the gift from you
Now everyone knows that blue has been worn, you can grab the gift if a girl was your first born
You can take the gift after this next versem if you are the gal who came carrying a shoulder type purse
I'll give you a chance and want to be fair, hurry for the gift if you have brown colored hair
We hope everyone playing will be a good sport, you can have the gift if your hair is short
We're getting tricky, here's a real humdinger! take the gift if you have more than one ring on your finger
You're all doing great! what a success, the gift can be yours if your not wearing a dress
You won't hold it long, the gift is not for you, but now it goes to the lady with not one child but two
Don't despair cause here's the next clue, the gift is yours if your wearing a toeless shoe
With each pass of the gift we are having a ball, the gift is now going to you if your over 60 inches tall
We hope you're all having fun, we tried to include everyone. Its your chance to have it if your the mother of a son
From one lady to the next, you have the gift and then it's gone, but the gift is yours if you have earrings on
There won't be time to practice, there won't be time to rehearse, you are the lucky lady if you brought a colorful purse
Everyone is watching as the gift swiftly passes, but this is your turn to get it if you are wearing glasses
We're ending this game and the gift passing like hopscotch, you could be the winner if your wearing a wristwatch.
