The Little Indians

The Little Indians

 Ten little Indian boys went out to dine;
 One choked his little self and then there were nine.
 Nine little Indian boys sat up very late;
 One overslept himself and then there were eight.
 Eight little Indian boys traveling in Devon;
 One said he'd stay there and then there were seven.
 Seven little Indian boys chopping up sticks;
 One chopped himself in halves and then there were six.
 Six little Indian boys playing with a hive;
 A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.
 Five little Indian boys going in for law;
 One got in Chancery and then there were four.
 Four little Indian boys going out to sea;
 A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.
 Three little Indian boys walking in the zoo;
 A big bear hugged one and then there were two.
 Two little Indian boys sitting in the sun;
 One got frizzled up and then there was one.
 One little Indian boy left all alone;
 He went and hanged himself and then there were none.
