Sing a Song of Sixpence

★ Sing a Song of Sixpence  Lyrics :

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.

Alternate version of the last rhyme:

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