Sing a Song of Sixpence is a is a well-known English nursery rhyme, perhaps originating in the 18th century. This rhyme only appeared in Barney's Magical Musical Adventure and Barney's Big Surprise. It uses the same tune as "Sing a Song of People”.


Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye.
Four and twenty blackbirds,
Baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened,
The birds began to sing;
Wasn't that a dainty dish,
To set before the king?
