Halfpence and farthings,

say the bells of St. Peter's.

Two sticks and an apple,

Pokers and tongs,
say the bells of St. John's.

Kettles and pans,
say the bells of St. Ann's.

Old Father Baldpate,

You owe me ten shillings,

When will you pay me?

I do not know,
says the great bells of Bow.

Here comes a candle
to light you to bed,
Here comes a chopper
to chop off your head.
