SING A SONG OF SIXPENCE
Sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of rye; four-and-twenty blackbirds, baked in a pie!
When the pie was opened, the birds began to sing; wasn’t that a dainty dish, to set before the king?
The king was in his counting-house, counting out his money; the queen was in the parlor, eating bread and honey.
The maid was in the garden, hanging out the clothes; when down came a blackbird, and snapped at her nose.
