Sing a Song of Sixpence – Nursery Rhyme & Karaoke

Wow! Did you know that there is a book called Epulario that talks about cooking live birds in a pie? What a chirping surprise! This rhyme is said to be inspired by such a recipe… Sing a Song Of Sixpence everyone! Have fun singing!

Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye;
Four and twenty blackbirds
Baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened,
They all began to sing.
Now, 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 parlor
Eating bread and honey.
The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out the clothes.
Along there came a black bird
And snipped off her nose!
