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;
 Was not that a dainty dish to set before the king?

Sing a Song of Sixpence

The King was in his countinghouse, 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 along came a blackbird and snipped off her nose!

There was such a commotion
That little J
enny Wren
Flew down into the garden
And popped it back again!

Thanks to Pat Wills for that final verse!
