Gay go up and gay go down, To ring the bells of London town.

Oranges and lemons, Say the bells of St. Clement's.

Bull's eyes and targets, Say the bells of St. Marg'ret's.

Brickhats and tiles, Say the bells of St. Giles'

Halfpence and farthings, Say the bells of St. Martin's.

Pancakes and fritters, Say the bells of St. Peter's.

Two sticks and an apple, Say the bells of Whitechapel.

Pokers and tongs, Say the bells of St. John's.

Kettles and pans, Say the bells of St. Ann's.

Old Father Baldpate, Say the bells of Aldgate.

You owe me ten shillings, Say the bells of St. Helen's.

When will you pay me? Say the bells of Old Bailey.

When I grow rich, Say the bells of Shoreditch.

Pray when will that be? Say the bells of Stepney.

I do not know, Say the great bell of Bow.

Here comes a candle to light you to bed,

Here comes a chopper to chop off your head.
