Grandma gave Baby one; then there were nine.
Nine little cookies on a china plate--
Betty took a small one; then there were eight.
Eight little cookies, nice and round and even--
The butcher boy ate one; then there were seven.
Seven little cookies, much liked by chicks--
The old hen a
e one, then there were six.
Six little cookies, when grandma went to drive--
Betty had another one; then there were five.
Five little cookies, placed too near the door--
The little doggie ate one; then there were four.
Four little cookies, brown as brown could be--
Grandma took one for herself, then there were three.
Three little cookies--when grandpa said, "I too,
Would like a very little one", then there were two.
Two little cookies--fast did Betty run
To give one to her mamma; then there was one.
One little cooky--and now our story is done,
Baby Jane ate the last, then there was none.
