Sing a Song of Six Pence

Sing a song of sixpence,
(make circle with hands)

A pocket full of rye;

Four and twenty blackbirds

All baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened,
(open hands)

The birds began to sing;
(flutter fingers)

Wasn't that a dainty dish

To set before the King?

The King was in his counting-house,
(cup hand)

Counting out his money;
(pretend to pick up money)

The Queen was in the parlor

Eating bread and honey.
(make eating motions)

The maid was in the garden
Hanging out the clothes;
(extend arms)

When down came a blackbird,
(flutter down one hand)

And snipped off her nose!
(nip nose)
