One hen Song

 

Lyrics

One hen.
One hen, two ducks.
One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese.
One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters.
One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters, five corpulant porpoises.
One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters, five corpulant porpoises, six pairs of Don Alvarsio's tweezers.
One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters, five corpulant porpoises, six pairs of Don Alvarsio's tweezers, SIX THOUSAND MACIDONIANS IN FULL BATTLE ARRAY!
One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters, five corpulant porpoises, six pairs of Don Alvarsio's tweezers, SIX THOUSAND MACIDONIANS IN FULL BATTLE ARRAY, eight brass monkeys from the ancient, sacred crypts of egypt.
One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters, five corpulant porpoises, six pairs of Don Alvarsio's tweezers, SIX THOUSAND MACIDONIANS IN FULL BATTLE ARRAY, eight brass monkeys from the ancient, sacred crypts of egypt, nine apatheic, sympathetic old men on roller skates with a marked propensity towards procrastination and sloth.
One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters, five corpulant porpoises, six pairs of Don Alvarsio's tweezers, SIX THOUSAND MACIDONIANS IN FULL BATTLE ARRAY, eight brass monkeys from the ancient, sacred crypts of egypt, nine apatheic, sympathetic old men on roller skates with a marked propensity towards procrastination and sloth, ten lyricle, sphericle, diabolical denizens of the deep who haul salt around the corner of the quay in a query... ALL AT THE VERY SAME TIME.

Action

items added one at a time. CAPs to be said very loudly!

CommentSong leader starts with "one hen." and lets group echo. SL then adds one item to the list on each repetition.

It's a challenge to the memory to see who can master the entire list without a cheat sheet. I learned this about 30 years ago at summer camp and can still do the whole thing from memory!
