I Love Sixpence
Nursery Rhymes
 
I LOVE sixpence, pretty little sixpence,
  I love sixpence better than my life;
I spent a penny of it, I spent another,
  And I took fourpence home to my wife.
 
Oh, my little fourpence, my pretty little fourpence,        5
  I love fourpence better than my life;
I spent a penny of it, I spent another,
  And I took twopence home to my wife.
 
Oh, my little twopence, my pretty little twopence,
  I love twopence better than my life;        10
I spent a penny of it, I spent another,
  And I took nothing home to my wife.
 
Oh, my little nothing, my pretty little nothing,
  What will nothing buy for my wife?
I have nothing, I spend nothing,        15
  And I love nothing better than my wife.
