Nineteen Birds

by Anonymous

Nineteen birds and one bird more,
Just make twenty, and that's a score.

To the score then add but one;
That will make just twenty-one.

Now add two, and you will see
You have made up twenty-three.

If you like these clever tricks.
Add three more-for twenty-six.

Then three more, if you have time;
Now you’ve got to twenty-nine.

Twenty-nine now quickly take—
Add one more and Thirty make.
