Four And 20 And So Forth

Four and twenty black birds baked in a pie.
Five and twenty red birds caught in a lie.
Six and twenty blue birds set free -- they fly.
Eight and twenty convicts sentenced to die.
Nine and twenty fresh fish -- they soon will fry.
One and thirty redheads -- Jack made them cry.
Two and thirty people Jack conned -- he's so sly.
Three and thirty people watch Jack, and sigh.

Four and thirty drunkards drink beer and rye.
Five and thirty people say of that -- oh fie!
To all of this I say -- oh my oh my oh my!
