Lyrics

1. Oh my little sixpence, my pretty little sixpence.
I love sixpence better than my life.
I spent a penny of it, I lent another.
And I took fourpence home to my wife.

2. Oh my little fourpence, my pretty little fourpence.
I love fourpence better than my life.
I spent a penny of it, I lent another.
And I took twopence home to my wife.

3. Oh my little twopence…And I took nothing home to my wife.

4. Oh my little nothing, my pretty little nothing.
What will nothing buy for my wife?
I have nothing, I spend nothing,
I love nothing better than my wife!
