A penny for a schooler's bench, a penny for an easel
a penny for a spool of thread, a penny for a needle
This is what I thought the words were when I was little. I don't know what a "schooler's bench" is. Not today, not then.
All around the cops and the bitch
The money changed the whistle
All around the cobbler's bench
The monkey chased the weasel
Calf a ground of cruppeny lice
Half a pound of tuppenny rice
