When the "Pop! goes the weasel" line is reached they have to rush to a new ring before anyone else can. The one that fails is eliminated and the number of circles is reduced by one until there is only one weasel left. This is similar to the game of musical chairs: music is played as players circle a row of chairs, one fewer chairs than players, while music plays. Sammy Davis Jr. recorded the song for his album "When the Feeling Hits You!" (1965)The song is also featured in the film Blazing Saddles from 1974, being played by Count Basie in a cameo appearance.
