Sing a Song of Sixpence

Melody -

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;
Was not that a dainty dish
To set before the King?
  The King was in the 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 little bird
And snapped off her nose !
