Oranges and Lemons

Oranges and Lemons

Orange and lemon say the bells of St. Clemons
I owe you five farthings
Says the bells of St. Martins
And when shall I pay you
When I grow rich
Like a little dog ditch
Here comes a candle
To light you to bed
Here comes a chopper
To chop off your head
Chop chop chop chop
Last man's head
Sung by Dianne Endicott on Jean Ritchie Field Trip England
