One, two, three, four, five--
I caught a fish alive!
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten--
I let him go again!

Why did you let him go?
Because he bit my finger so!
Which finger did he bite?
The little one on the right!

and

Five brown buns in the bakery shop,
Five brown buns with sugar on the top.
Along came a man with a penny to pay,
He looked in the window, and he took one away.

Four brown buns... (etc.--we alternate "man" and "woman" until the last verse)

Three brown buns...

Two brown buns...

One brown bun...

No brown buns in the bakery shop,
No brown buns with sugar on the top.
Along came a kid with a penny to pay,
He looked in the window, but he just went away.
