Green Grow the Rushes

 I'll sing you one, Ho (or O)
Green grow the rushes, Ho
What is your one, Ho?
One is one and all alone
And evermore shall be (it) so.

...

 I'll sing you twelve, Ho
Green grow the rushes, Ho
What are your twelve, Ho?
Twelve for the twelve Apostles,
Eleven for the eleven who went to heaven,
Ten for the ten commandments,
Nine for the nine bright shiners,
Eight for the April Rainers, (or April Showerers, or occasionally Eight for the eight bold Rangers)
Seven for the seven stars in the sky, (or Seven for the seven who went to Heaven)
Six for the six proud walkers, (or brown walkers)
Five for the symbols at your door,
Four for the Gospel makers,
Three, three, the rivals,
Two, two, the lily-white boys,
Clothèd all in green, Ho
One is one and all alone (sometimes One is one and one alone or One is one and stands alone)
And evermore shall be (it) so.
