Playing with little children barefoot, and pulling their toes:
This pigeon went to the market,
This one stayed at home.
This one got bread and butter,
and this one got none.
Peek! Peek! said the little one at the barn door
I'll tell mother when she'll come home.

Clapping the hands:
Shake hands brother John
You're a rogue and I'm another
You'll be hung for stealing soap
and I'll be hung for stealing sugar
You'll be hung in Ballinrobe
And I'll be hung in Ballintubber.
Shake hands brother Tom
You're a rogue and I'm another
