  1. 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.
    The final line of the fourth verse is sometimes slightly varied, with nose pecked or nipped off. One of the following additional verses is often added to moderate the ending:

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

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

  2. I keep looking for the historical references in this; as Ring around the Rosie was about the Black Death, I expect Sing a Song of Sixpence to be about a ruling clique.

  3. Be nice to know the rest of Timulty’s words. Perhaps?

    Sing a song of six pants, pockets full of rye,
    For to do the laundry they were baked in a pie,
    When the pie was opened the sprouts began to sing,
    Wasn’t that a tasty dish to set before the king?

    Presuming that rye sprouts are edible — but raccoons eat everything!
