Elizabeth, Elspeth, Betsy, and Bess,
They all went together to seek a bird’s nest;
They found a bird’s nest with five eggs in,
They all took one, and left four in.
EENIE, MEENIE, MINEY, MO
Eenie, meeny, miney, mo
Catch a tiger by the toe,
If he hollers, let him go
Eenie, meenie, miney, mo.
Elsie Marley's grown so fine,
She won't get up to feed the swine,
But lies in bed 'til eight or nine!
Lazy Elsie Marley.
