VERSE 1 

D 
Sing a song of sixpence,

  A7 
A pocket full of rye;

Four and twenty blackbirds 

D 
Baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened,

    A7 
The birds began to sing;

Wasn't that a dainty dish 

                  D 
To set before the King?

VERSE 2

The King was in the counting house,

A7 
Counting out his money;

The Queen was in the parlour,

D 
Eating bread and honey;

The maid was in the garden 

A7 
Hanging out the clothes;

When down came a blackbird,

                   D 
And pecked off her nose.
