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 parlour, 
Eating bread and honey. 

The maid was in the garden, 
Hanging out the clothes, 
When down came a blackbird 
And pecked off her nose. 

Alternative Lyrics: 

They sent for the king's doctor, 
who sewed it on again; 
He sewed it on so neatly, 
the seam was never seen. 

Alternative Lyrics:

There was such a commotion,
that little Jenny wren
Flew down into the garden,
and put it back again.
