Oranges and lemons

Watch and sing along with the video.

Oranges and lemons,
Say the bells of Saint Clement's.
You owe me five farthings,
Say the bells of Saint Martin's.
When will you pay me?
Say the bells of Old Bailey.
When I grow rich,
Say the bells of Shoreditch.
When will that be?
Say the bells of Stepney.
I do not know,
Say the great bells of Bow.
Here comes a candle to light you to bed,
Here comes a candle to light you to bed.

Pancakes and fritters,
Say the bells of Saint Peter's.
Two sticks and an apple,
Say the bells of Whitechaple.
Old Father Baldpate,
Say the bells of Aldgate.
Pokers and tongs,
Say the bells of Saint John's.
Kettles and pans,
Say the bells of Saint Ann's.
Brickbats and tiles,
Say the great bells of Saint Giles'.
Here comes a candle to light you to bed,
Here comes a candle to light you to bed.
