One For Sorrow

"One For Sorrow (Two For Joy)" is an old English nursery rhyme. But it is still in use, and the kids really like this song. It is also great for teaching them counting.

Did you know that "One For Sorrow" actually is about magpies? One says that the numer of magpies you see determines if you will have bad or good luck... How many magpies have you seen today?


One For Sorrow - Lyrics

One for sorrow,
Two for joy,
Three for a girl,
Four for a boy,
Five for silver,
Six for gold,
Seven for a secret,
Never to be told!
Eight for a wish,
Nine for a kiss,
Ten for a bird,
You must not miss.
