I Love Sixpence
Nursery Rhyme lyrics, origins and history

I love sixpence, jolly, jolly, sixpence,
I love sixpence as my life.
I spent a penny of it, I spent a penny of it,
I took a penny home to my wife.

I love fourpence, jolly, jolly fourpence,
I love fourpence as my life.
I spent twopence of it, I spent twopence of it,
I took twopence home to my wife.

I have nothing, jolly, jolly nothing
I love nothing as my life.
I spent nothing of it, I spent nothing of it,
I took nothing home to my wife.
