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,
along came a blackbird
and pecked off her nose.
