COUNTING.

2.

While passing through the kitchen
Of Mr. Portefarine,
I heard that he was roasting
Three dozen little hens.
I asked whom they were for,
And was told they were for my father.
My father made me taste them,
I found them too salty.

(One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve.)

Blow your nose,
Cheeky little fellow.
Harlequin,
Blow your own.
