1 and 1 are 2 -

That's for me and you.

2 and 2 are 4 -

That's a couple more.

3 and 3 are 6

Barley-sugar sticks.

4 and 4 are 8

Tumblers at the gate.

5 and 5 are 10

Bluff seafaring men.

6 and 6 are 12

Garden lads who delve.

7 and 7 are 14

Young men bent on sporting.

8 and 8 are 16

Pills the doctor's mixing.

9 and 9 are 18

Passengers kept waiting.

10 and 10 are 20

Roses - pleasant plenty!

11 and 11 are 22

Sums for brother George to do.

12 and 12 are 24

Pretty pictures, and no more.
