Oranges and lemons
say the bells of St. Clement's

You owe me five farthings
say the bells of St. Martin's

When will you pay me?
say the bells of Old Bailey

When I grow rich
say the bells of Shoreditch

When will that be?
say the bells of Stepney

I do not know
say the great bells of Bow
Here comes a candle
to light you to bed
Here comes a chopper
to chop off your head
chip chop chip chop
the last man's head.
