One two Buckle my shoe,

Thirteen fourteen Maids a-courting,
Fifteen sixteen Maids in the kitchen,

Seventeen eighteen Maids a-waiting,
Nineteen twenty My plate’s empty,

Thirteen fourteen draw the curtain
Fifteen sixteen the maid’s in the kitchen,
Seventeen eighteen she’s in waiting,
Nineteen twenty my stomach’s empty.
