Each, Peach, Pear, Plum,
Out goes number one.

Eana, Meana, mina moe,
Catch a nigger by the toe,
If you squeeze him, let him to
Eana, Meana, mina moe.
A wee wee woman, and a wee wee man,
A wee wee kettle, and a wee wee pan,
A wee wee knife, and a wee wee fork,
And a wee wee woman coming home from Cork.
