Английские считалки


По неопытности не запомнил источник, но так давно ими пользуюсь на уроках, что дано считаю своими единоутробными. Кое что точно взято из журнала Иностранные языки в школе.

Если автор будет против размещения, я немедленно исправлюсь.

Не повторяйте моих ошибок.

Bee, a bee, a bumblebee

Stung a man upon his knee ужалил

And a hog upon his snout,

I'll be dogged if you ain't out!




Hinx, minx, the old witch winks,

The cat begins to fry,

Nobody's home but

Jumping Joan Father, mother, and I

Stick, stock, stone dead.

Blind men can't see,

Every knave will have a slave,

You and I must be he!




One for sorrow, two for mirth,

Three for a wedding, four for a birth,

Five for silver, six for gold,

Seven for a secret not to be told.

Eight for heaven, nine for hell,

And ten for the devil's own sell'.




One for sorrow,

two for joy,

three for a girl,

Four for a boy,

five for silver,

six for gold,

seven for a secret,

never to be told,

eight for a wish,

nine for a kiss,

ten for a time

of joy ours bliss.




One for sadness, two for mirth;

Three for marriage, four for birth;

Five for laughing, six for crying:

Seven for sickness, eight for dying;

Nine for silver, ten for gold;

Eleven a secret that will never be told.




Intry, mintry, cutry, corn

Apple seed and apple thorn

Wire, briar, limber, lock

Five geese in a flock

One flew east, one flew west,

and one flew over the cuckoo's nest

Out, with a dirty dishcloth, out!




One for death and two for birth,               

Three for wind and four for earth,

Five for fire, six for rain,

Seven's joy and eight is pain,

Nine to go, ten back again!




One, two, buckle my shoe

Three, four, close the door

Five, six, pick up sticks

Seven, eight, close the gate

Nine, ten, home again




And it's one, two, three, four

What are we fighting for?

Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,

Next stop is Vietnam;

And it's five, six, seven, eight

Open up the pearly gates,

Well there ain't no time to wonder why

Whoopee! we're all gonna die.




Eeny, meeny, miney, mo.

Catch a tiger by the toe.

If he hollers, let him go.

Eeny, meeny, miney, mo.


Often followed by

My mother told me you are not it you dirty old dishrag you.


My mother says to pick this very one.




Eenie, meenie, minie, mo,

Catch a tiger by his toe.

If he hollers, make him pay

Fifty dollars every day.

My Mother says to pick this one;

O-U-T spells out goes you,

Right in the middle of the red, white and blue.




Inka Binka bottle of ink,

The cork fell off and you stink,

Not because you're dirty,

Not because you're clean,

Just because ya kissed a (boy or girl)

Behind a magazine and You are it.




One, two, three, four, five,

I caught a fish alive.

Six, seven, eight, nine, ten,

I let him go again.

O-U-T spells out goes you!





come on out and play with me.


come and play.


come with them.


near the tree.


Oh, how happy we will be.


Lot's of fun for you and me.
