American Old Time Song Lyrics: 08 Ten Little Injuns
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 8
TEN LITTLE INJUNS.
Ten little Injuns standing in a line,
One toddled home, and then there were nine.
Nine little Injuns swingin' on a gate,
One tumbled off, and then there were eight.
One little, two little, three little, four little, five little Injun boys.
Six little, seven little, eight little, nine little, ten little Injun boys.
Eight little Injuns never heard of heaven,
One kicked the bucket, and then there were seven.
Seven little Injuns cutting up their tricks,
One broke his neck, And then there were six.- Chorus.
Six little Injuns kicking, all alive.
One went to bed, and then there were five.
Five little Injuns on a cellar-door,
One tumbled in, and then there were four-Chorus.
Four little Injuns out on a spree,
One dead drunk, and then there were three.
Three little Injuns out in a canoe,
One tumbled overboard, and then there were two.-Chorus.
Two little Injuns foolin' with a gun.
One shot t'other, and then there was one.
One little Injun livin' all alone.
He got married, and then there was none-Chorus.
One little Injun with his little wife.
Lived in a wigwam, the balance of his life.
One daddy Injun, one mammy squaw,
Soon raised a family of ten Injuns more.
One little, two little, three little, four little, five little Injuns more,
Six little, seven little, eight little, nine little, ten little Injuns more.
