There Were Ten In The Bed

Lyrics

There were ten in the bed
And the little one said,
‘Roll over! Roll over!’
So they all rolled over
And one fell out,
And he gave a little scream,
And he gave a little shout, ‘Yahoo!’
Please remember to tie a knot in your pyjamas,
Single beds are only made for
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight –

There were nine in the bed
And the little one said,
‘Roll over! Roll over!’
So they all rolled over
And one fell out,
And he gave a little scream,
And he gave a little shout, ‘Yahoo!’
Please remember to tie a knot in your pyjamas,
Single beds are only made for
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven –

There were eight in the bed
And the little one said,
‘Roll over! Roll over!’
So they all rolled over
And one fell out,
And he gave a little scream,
And he gave a little shout, ‘Yahoo!’
Please remember to tie a knot in your pyjamas,
Single beds are only made for
One, two, three, four,
five, six –

There were seven in the bed
And the little one said,
‘Roll over! Roll over!’
So they all rolled over
And one fell out,
And he gave a little scream,
And he gave a little shout,
‘Yahoo!’
Please remember to tie a
knot in your pyjamas,
Single beds are only
made for
One, two, three, four, five –

There were six in the bed
And the little one said,
‘Roll over! Roll over!’
So they all rolled over
And one fell out,
And he gave a little scream,
And he gave a little shout,
‘Yahoo!’
Please remember to tie a
knot in your pyjamas,
Single beds are only
made for
One, two, three, four –

There were five in the bed
And the little one said,
‘Roll over! Roll over!’
So they all rolled over
And one fell out,
And he gave a little scream,
And he gave a little shout,
‘Yahoo!’
Please remember to tie
a knot in your pyjamas,
Single beds are only made for
One, two, three –

There were four in the bed
And the little one said,
‘Roll over! Roll over!’
So they all rolled over
And one fell out,
And he gave a little scream,
And he gave a little shout, ‘Yahoo!’
Please remember to tie a
knot in your pyjamas,
Single beds are only made for
One, two –

There were three in the bed
And the little one said,
‘Roll over! Roll over!’
So they all rolled over
And one fell out,
And he gave a little scream,
And he gave a little
shout, ‘Yahoo!’
Please remember to tie
a knot in your pyjamas,
Single beds are only made for One –

There were two in the bed
And the little one said,
‘Roll over! Roll over!’
So they all rolled over
And one fell out,
And he gave a little scream,
And he gave a little shout, ‘Yahoo!’
Please remember to tie a
knot in your pyjamas,
Single beds are only
made for one.
Single beds are only
made for one.
