    Bim bam bom, hot corn (in Hebrew it rhymes...)
    A Israeli story - a boy called Ofir steps out to the street all excited, singing and drumming on a pot: "bim bam bom, hot corn". This happy boy gets more kids excited, and they are happy too, so six noisy kids are walking, rejoicing in a row and playfully singing this song....
